What is the preferred method for indicating components that aren't populated in OrCAD Capture 16.6? Do I just simply add text next to the schematic symbol that says "Do Not Populate", or is there something in the property editor that I can add or change so that the component shows that it shouldn't be populated when I generate the BOM?
I can manually make the changes to the bill of materials as well as the schematic, I was just wondering if there was some feature of OrCAD that could handle this for me.
Ah. OK, thanks, Tom. Well, I made a few copies of the DSN file, labeled the components that aren't populated with DNP (Do Not Populate), and then made copies of the BOM and made the changes to the individual BOMs.
I was thinking that there might have been a more streamlined way to do this in OrCAD. If anybody has any more suggestions or methods for doing this, let me know.
