adding circuit configuration info on schematic

Hi All,

I'm designing a small board that can be changed, by adding/removing components/links, into differente configurations.

Is there a way of having an active schematic with all the conmponents so I can generate the PCB for it, but also include the other configurations on the schematic as a sort of documentation?

 

Thank you.

Best Regards

           Luis

Hi @luis.moreiraLEUNF ,

 

There's a couple of options here, you could just use text to write out the different options. Another option is to use the VARIANT feature to define variations of the design where some variants can have different component values, some parts unpopulated, etc.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Hi Jorge,

The Variant solution is interesting and it may just do what I need... Any examples that I can have a look at?

 

thank you.

Best Regards

Hi @luis.moreiraLEUNF ,

 

I hope you're having a good day. I don't have any specific examples handy. In the schematic, you'll find the VARIANT command under the Document menu. You can create new variants through that menu and play with the different options.

 

Now to make a specific variant active in the command line type VARIANT 'nameofvarianthere' and press enter. To go back to the normal variant type VARIANT '' and press enter. Those are two single quotes not a double quote.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
