Course Highlights

You will examine every step of the schematic and library process in lectures; including hierarchical schematic capture, symbol creation, library structure and design viewpoint generation as well as library data management. You will learn the use of the "To_Layout" utility, which provides an automated process for packaging schematic designs for board layout. Lab exercises are designed to give you hands-on experience and reinforce the design process steps covered in the lecture.

You will learn how to

  • Create and edit a schematic for a hierarchical design using the DA_LMS Parts selector to select parts from LMS libraries
  • Create and edit component symbols
  • Create and edit properties on a symbol and schematic
  • View a sheet within the context of a design
  • Build shopping lists and replacement list of LMS parts
  • Update and replace parts in your design
  • Query catalog files for usable parts
  • Successfully check and save a schematic design
  • Package schematic design using the To_Layout utility
