Is their an option where in i can generate a BOM while ignoring a component in the Schematic using Capture_CIS-163 something like wht it is in HDL
Add property PSpiceOnly set to TRUE to the part in Capture amd this will remove the part from the BOM and the netlist.
In reply to steve:
is their any property exlusive for BOM n Netlist separetely...like BOM_IGNORE & PACK_IGNORE.... so that i can ignore the component only in BOM
In reply to MAAC:
basically i want a component in netlist but not in BOM....
I don't think this exists. I suggest you raise an enhancement request with Cadence directly.
Could you set up a variant within CIS and mark the component as not fitted, then generate your BOM from this?
In reply to slohcin:
Yes - Have a look at Part Manager under the tools menu.
i created a BOM under BOM Variants of Part manager..where can i mention the component as not fitted
i am able to see all the schematic components over their
OK, unless you have created some groups and subgroups, all of your components will be "Common", Common components are always fitted. Check out the CIS Users Guide, cisug.pdf in the doc\cisug directory of the installation, section 4 deals with creating and using groups and subgroups. Once you have moved components to groups / subgroups, you can alter the fitted / not fitted and value properties for the components in the groups / subgroups. Usually some portion, possibly most, of the components in the design will remain as "Common".
I also have this problem using 16.5. Seems like it still not possible to make. I think this should be fixed.
When you are generating a BOM, how can you exclude components? In part manager I have chosen “Not present” this makes the component in the BOM "not mounted". Problem is I also have components I don’t want in the BOM such as test points. How to?
In reply to Kristofer:
In Part Manager, set up a group called "Not Components" and drag test points etc here. Remember to mark all of them as Not Present.
This group must appear in all of your variants.
Can't find "Not Present"
Create Group "Not Components"
Move Testpads etc into this group
Open "Not Components" group
Shift select all
Right click, select "Set Part As Not Present"
A red X will appear against each component
Hope this helps
I was able to perform your steps correctly but now I'm wondering what this will yield for me? My "Do Not Stuff" components are listed just like they were before. They are not identified in the BOM as "Do Not Stuff" components. They are not identified uniquely at all.
In reply to budnoelnew:
I have the same problem with CIS.
We used a Fitted property to display "Not Fitted" in the BOM and on the schematic before CIS, but I haven't been able to get the contents of this variable to display on the CIS Standard BOM Report. I have added Fitted to the list, but the BOM doesn't actually show the contents of the property.
We need the BOM to display values and other information even for non-stuffed parts, which rules out the use of Variants.
I have tried adding the property to the schematic symbol, adding the property to the CIS Database (using all combinations of the Transfer to Design and Update Part Property when mapping it), and both in the symbol and in the database, it doesn't help, the Fitted property has a column in the BOM but doesn't display anything in the column. All I get is a statement that there is a mismatch of the Fitted property between the parts with the "Not Fitted" string and those without.
Any thioughts anyone has in reference to this would be appreciated :)
In reply to GeePee3:
OK, it works like this:
As far as CIS is concerned, you have a part, the part has a Part Number and that Part Number has a number of associated Part Properties, either in the Schematic, or the database. A part with a different set of properties, regardless of what they are, is a different part, so that needs a different Part Number.
Your Property method will work with the Capture BOM, Tools>Bill of Materials, set the Header and Combined Property String as required, because it has no regard for Part Numbers and the matching of Properties.
In 16.6 the CIS BOM format will export the Part Numbers of Not Fitted parts in the variants. (You are still going to have the issue with differing properties...)
