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.
My KISS method:
Add a feild called note
In the "Note" feild place the text DNP.
Display the value only of the note feild
Add this feild to the BOM output.
Move part, the DNP follows the part. In a Hierachical drawing, you can populate or blank this feild out per occerance....
