Schematic Capture

Hierarchical or flat (multi-sheet) schematics are designed with ease. Parts can be "dragged and dropped" from the easily accessible parts tray, directly from the master schematic symbol libraries, or even from other open designs.

New part symbols can be easily created, and symbols may be created to represent a schematic sheet, thereby permitting a hierarchical schematic to be created.

Adding connections is easy, with orthogonal locking and snap to pin, tie dots being added automatically as required. Buses are defined automatically; simply select the terminals required, then pull the bus into position.

The design engineer can control all aspects of critical connections from the schematic, to allow EMC checking in the artwork. User-defined attributes can be assigned to pins, parts and connections in order to perform design rule checking, or to extract information such as bill of materials, simulator files, etc.
