In PADS Pro, how do you generate an X,Y report for the component locations? I am still trying to figure out all of the new buttons and features. There was an easy to run basic script in the original PADS Layout.
If you use the Design Archive tool at all that has capabilities to generate some reports on Placement, Line Lengths, Netlist and a design summary. Not a direct way from PADS Pro but a work around at least...
Yes you can report directly from PADS Professional Layout as well. Use File | Export | General Interfaces and use
Produces generic output for both:
- Automatic Insertion Systems (AIS)
- Automatic Test Equipment (ATE)
You can edit these generic ASCII files with a text editor to meet the specific needs of your company's individual CAM systems. The generated files are named vb_ate.txt (for ATE) and vb_ais.txt (for AIS).
Go through the help of this dialog to get more details.
