    Is there a way to check for unplaced schematic symbol versions? Reply

    We have many split parts in our library where one symbol version might be power/gnd and another might have the logic pins, for example.  I would like an automatic check that would produce warnings for symbols that do not have all of their versions placed somewhere in the schematic.  We've gotten by up until now, but I'm trying to tighten up our process, prevent mistakes, and give piece of mind before the design is manufactured.

    Does anyone have any ideas how to do this?  Would it be best to write a Perl script, SKILL, or some CheckPlus rules?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Once the design is packaged if you look at pstrprt.dat (located in the packaged directory) this has a spares list which should give you what you want.

    Credit for this must go to Sourcelink.
