    Connecting multiple pads to a single pin

    mipson

      Hi,

       

      I've recently started working with PADS and have a question about creating a part type.

      Is there a way to connect several pads (PCB terminals) to one pin in the schematics? In my case I have a fuse holder consisting of 4 pads per fuse pin (See http://www.littelfuse.com/data/en/Data_Sheets/Littelfuse_ATO-PCB-Fuse-holders-178.6765.pdf) and I would like to avoid making a total of 8 pins in the schematics by "grouping" 4 pads into one so I can use a 2 pin schematic symbol. Is it possible and how do I go about doing that?

      What are you recommendations?

       

      Thanks,

      Mikael
