I have split an FPGA IC into 10 symbols via HETERO in DX Designer schematics so
that I can place it in different sheets.
Now when I forward annotate it to PADS layout, the system must see it as a whole
unit and will give only 1 component as a whole.
However, it doesn't happen. I can still get 10 component when I forward annotate
it to layout. There was no error encountered. The device attributes are all same
Do you know what should be the problem?
This question would be better answered by your local customer support who would be able to examine the symbol definition and determine if the syntax is correct.
