Let's say that it is a 10 pin connector.
- first build a gate with 10 slots for the single pin connector.
- second, add the 10 pin connector and you must manually map it's pins to the same 1 pin, 10 slot gate.
This will allow you to have both in the same part.
While searching for an answer I found your post and it seemed to be the answer I was looking for but I wasn't completely sure. The part I was not sure would work was the manually mapping the pins for the second symbol. Now I know I have to first build a gate with 10 slots than manually map my 10 pin connector and it would allow me to use either symbol in a schematic and have no conflicts, nice.
Thanks for the quick response.
is there anyway to automate that "manually map" work ? for 100 pin connector ..
do I need to create new slot and putpin for every pin ?
Yes, for the 100 pin, single pin connector, you would add one gate, then add one slot/pin for each pin in the connector using add slot/put pin.
please correct me if I'm wrong but in the manual action, in this case we only add new symbol WITHOUT creating new gate. ...why do we putgate with automation ? what is the difference between manual operation and automation behavior ?
