    Multiple physical pins, single symbol pin Reply

    Hello,

     

    I'm using OrCAD 16.3 and when creating symbols for components I've always had to create a symbol pin for every physical connect pin on the PCB footprint. However this can lead to components which looks really really odd when you have many physical pins with the same function and you still have to create separate symbol pins for every one and "link" them together in the symbol (e.g. a transistor with multiple collector/emitter/source/drain pins). Is there no way to actually combine several physical pins to a single symbol pins? I've tried to enter a number of comma-separated numbers in the "Add pin" dialog but it never accepts that as more than single pin which is numbered oddly.

     

    Regards,

    Henric
