    POWER_GROUP vs. POWER_PINS Reply

    Similar to the "Assign Power Pins" gui that allows you to redefine the POWER_PINS, has anyone created a skill routine that does the same but for POWER_GROUP instead?

    On large parts, such as FPGA's where there are many power pins, having a POWER_PINS property is unwieldy if you happen to have it displayed. Further, the way the gui works you could actually tie the wrong powers together if you weren't careful selecting. A more efficient method to re-assign the power pins is with the POWER_GROUP property. A gui similar to the assign power pins function would be helpful. Also, the property value is small enough it could be displayed.

    You need to create a property template in cnskill and attach the property to the component. There should be such a function in the stdAccess.il file (global change uses it). just search the install dir for it.

    If this doesn't help let me know. I have such a function somewhere!
