Hello all, i am having Allegro pcb editor 15.2. i want to swap the pins of an ic or resistor but when i click over pin it says "pin not swapable swap code is zero" i don't know where to add this swap code and make any pin wsapable the online documentation is not sufficient to understand so pls tell me the simple steps to follow and make pin swapable. pls do reply allen
The swap must be define in you schematic or netlist. What id your entry?(concept, orcad capture, netlist,...)
where to define this swap code in capture pls explain in details currently it is giving error as "swap code is zero"
This is done in the schematic part symbol editor (i.e.OrCad). 1.Bring up the part for editing (usually from within the library). 2.Select "Pacakge" from the "view" menu. 3.Select "Properties" from the "edit" menu. 4. The column labeled "pin group" is actually the pin swap id. Use numbers from "1" up. Pins with the same number will we swappable with eachother. On homogenous multipart parts like a quad AND gate, the two AND inputs of all four gates will be 1, as each gate is a separate part. The help files sort of cover this. Look in the capture help index for "pin swapping for allegro"
It is documented in help: search pin_group
ok cool got it. i tried with help file searching pin swap but didn't got any thing but the procedure you given worked...! thanks
