Hi, I want to add values to components in my SiP design such as 1nF or 15nH. There is already in existence a COMP_VALUE property reserved for this as shown during BOM generation. This property is not visible under the Edit/Properties dialog for component or symbol find filters. We have already created user properties called COMP_MFG and COMP_MFG_PN that it editable at a component level. When we try to add COMP_VALUE it is reported as a reserved name in Cadence but this name is not listed in the properties dialog. Is there a way to turn on the visibility and editablility of this or other hidden reserved Cadence property names? How can I assign a string value to the COMP_VALUE property?
i was able to add "COMP_VALUE" as shown below.
The edit properties section lists up the items in alphabetical order so you can not find it after theta_Jr.
Thanks for your reply. It is interesting that the property value you show in your screen grab is not present in my version of SiP 17.2. What version are you running? I also do not have the property "CDS_XNETS_WO_MODELS". Is your SiP tool customized?
Hi Masamasa, I am not trying to add a property "VALUE', I want to make this property visible for editing. The 'VALUE' property already exists and is visible when you go to the 'Logic/EditPartList' menu:
This property is associated to the 'COMP' class and is used in the BOM generation as one of the column headers:
I want this property to become visible for editing outside of the 'EditPartsList' function. The property 'VALUE' already exists
and therefore cannot be added but it does not show up in the PropertDefinitions Dialog.
This is what I am trying to accomplish.
Thanks for your input
i am using allegro packaging designer 17.2, not customized.
what i always do first is to select the object.
then i select "property edit" in the RMB menu.
the edit property section lists up all the properties of the object.
each object has different properties.
so some of the object may not have "COMP_VALUE."
