I'm using PADS Standard Plus. I have a large board with a lot of duplicated logic, including large FPGAs. The FPGAs of course do not fit on one sheet. Is it possible to create a hierarchical symbol for multiple sheets?
Firstly I've moved this to a more appropriate community. To answer your question, hierarchy in Designer can point to one schematic but this can comprise multiple sheets. You can also duplicate hierarchical blocks at the same level, so for a large fractured FPGA comprsing multiple symbols create a block or blocks and put add the FPGA symbols under this block or blocks but across sheets do that the symbols are small enough to fit on a sheet.
For more information on managing hierarchy in Designer take a look at the videos here Design Creation
Assuming you are a newbie to PADS, the term you are looking for to split a symbol is 'Gates'. PADS splits schematic symbols for a single part into multiple gates. (caveat, this is the correct term in PADS Logic, I believe it is the same in DxD but my DxD knowledge is getting rusty...). Which tool ae you using for your schematics?
Also, your use of hierarchical seems misplaced. A flat design (single page or multiple pages) can use multiple gates to represent a part. Let me know if I'm missing something in your description. Ah, I read Robert's reply after I wrote this. Now you have both interpretations of your question.
