I am having problem with using the function swap between two of the same connector on Allegro. I have a device file that worked before, but I can't get it to use this device file on the OrCAD file that the end customer is providing me with. Is there a way to use this one device file that I have on hand and use the rest as it is?
Thank you all again.
What type of netlist are you getting from your customer? Is it 3 PST*.dat files? If it is the device files are built into the netlist and you can not use the external one. The only way you can use the device file you want is if you are using the third party netlist. You would have to edit the customers netlist in the $Packages section to have it point to the device file you wish to use. Be carefull because if you edit the netlist and do swaps after this you will be out of sync with the original schematic. I would recommend doing a test case and backannotationing before getting to far down the road.
Your customer should create the Capture part to allow the swaps you need.
