When working with large pin count parts like processors, FPGAs, and DDRs, one of the challenges is the creation of schematic symbols. It becomes an exhaustive task especially when creating such large pin symbols from scratch. A librarian would need to segregate pins as per the functionality. Now, you might wonder:
How do you approach this?
There might be other challenges that you may come across while working on parts with large pin counts. We look forward to hearing from your experience.
NEVER #4. Power net names can change and leave unconnected pins. I want to see every symbol pin on a schematic.
In my experience, I often use the method of creating separate symbols for power/ground sections when dealing with large pin count parts. This helps in organizing and visually representing the functionality of the pins more effectively.
