Hello group -
I am still using Pads 9.4 schematic and layout.
So forgive me if maybe newer versions take care of this issue.
I have created an Assembly Variant in layout. So now I need to generate a BOM for the CM, in the format that they can use for purchasing parts. From schematic, I generate a BOM that looks like this:
|Item||Qty||Reference||Description||Manufacturer||Mfr Part Number|
|27||1||A1||Antenna, Chip, 2.4-2.483GHz||Pulse||W3008|
|17||1||C1||Cap, 22uF, 25V, 0.36 ohms, 240mA rms, 5dia x 5.8L||Nichicon||UCL1E220MCL1GS|
|23||1||C13||Cap, 10uF, 10V, Tantalum, A-Case||Kemet||T491A106K010AT|
|16||1||C14||Cap, 22uF, 10, 16V, X5R, 1210||Kemet||C1210C226K4PAC|
|11||1||C15||Cap, 1pF, 0.5%, 100V, NPO, 0603||Kemet||C0603C109D1GAC|
|2||C16, C17||Cap, 1pF, 0.5%, 100V, NPO, 0604||Kemet||C0603C109D1GAC|
|12||2||C2, C12||Cap, 1uF, 10%, 10V, X5R, 0603||Kemet||C0603C105K8PAC|
|1||3||C3, C5, C11||Cap, 0.1uF, 10%, 50V, X7R, 0603||Kemet||C0603C104K5RAC|
|13||1||C4||Cap, 1uF, 10%, 25V, X5R, 1206||Kemet||C1206C105K3PAC|
How can I generate a similar BOM from within layout? I have tried using the Basic Script Editor, but I can't get it to show one part type per line (grouping the reference designators).
@dmeeks - thanks for your question. However, the Member Resources area is for general communities questions and suggestions. I am going to move this to the PADS-specific community where it will receive greater visibility.
