    map copied placement to schematic components orcad pcb editor 16.6 Reply

    I'm doing layout of a filter on diff paths..
    so the components (R, C & L) must also be placed symmetrically.
    I've done placement on one path and (for symmetry) copied the components & placed them on the other path.
    but the problem is i'm not able to map the copied components (symbols) to the original component names on the second path.

    how to map/name symbols tocomponents

    Depends on the license you have. If you have OrCAD Professional then use the Place Replicate command to create a repeatable reuse module. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VVP5UaNvDU.

    If you have OrCAD Standard then once you have copied the placement the parts will be labelled R*, C* , L* etc. Use Logic - Assign Refdes and then from the Options menu get a list of avaliable RefDes and pick the refdes you require and map the placed parts.
