Renaming Net Names Dynamically Based on Symbol Pin Names

Question asked by patrick.boswell on Jul 27, 2010

Hello,

 

I have about 10 wires each connected to a symbol.

 

The symbol has names for the pins.

 

The wires have the default net names of "NET", each connected to different pins on the symbol.

 

I am looking to write a script to automate naming of the wires from the default "NET" to grabbing the name of the pin from the symbol,

and using that.

 

So for instance, I place symbol "FPGA" down on a schematic. I want to have a script that drops nets automatically and edits their names from "NET" to appropriate Net names such as "GPIO_1", "VCC", "GND" based on what the pin is on the symbol.

 

This would rapidly help me develop schematics that have very high pincounts.

 

Thank You!
