Allegro keeps giving me an error message everytime i try to Place Manually a symbol (6032 CAP)...the message says:""E- (SPMHGE-82): Pin numbers do not match between symbol and component. Run dev_check on device file for more information.""
I have saved the *.dra file and *.psm along with the *.pad in the working directing of my curent design. Also, I changed the path of these location from the User Preferences.
This is a polarized CAP that has "P" and "N" as Pin names in the schematics in Caprture CIS and I named the pins in the *.dra file exactly the same and in the correct order.
The pins are electrical and NOT mechanical, i double checked this.
When I try to place the symbol, I can see the outline of the symbol but it does not let me to place due to the above message.
Please, anybody can help?
please reply to this post or to my email
Did you verify the Pin Numbers on the schematic symbol? I am not familiar with Capture CIS but most schematic packages using Pin Numbers and Pin Names on schematic symbols and they do not need to be the same. In all cases the Pin Numbers must match the physical symbol.
Hope this helps,Mike Catrambone
Thanks for your message. I have verified the pin number on the schematic symbol.....The Pin Names and the Pin Numbers on the schematic part are the same.
I tried deleting the pins in the footprint and placing them again using the same Pin Numbers used in the schematics but useless :(
I am thinking it might be a directory related problem but i am not sure though.
make sure that you did not assign a pin number to a pin name ..check all your pins in the symbol editor.
I would be willing to look at it if you want to send me your symbol and footprint.
