The following pre-packaged resources, derived from this base command, are available:


Applied Parameters: LibReference=Res2 |Library=Miscellaneous Devices.IntLib |ModelType=SIM |ModelParameterName0=Value|ModelParameterValue0=1K| Orientation=1

Summary

This command is used to place a 1K resistor component - Res2, from the Miscellaneous Devices.IntLib - onto the current document.

Access

This command is accessed from the Schematic Editor by clicking the  button on the Digital Devices drop-down () of the Utilities toolbar.

Use

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and an outline of the component will appear floating on the cursor. Simply move the component to the required position in the workspace and click, or press Enter, to place it.

Continue placing further instances of the same component, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit placement mode.

Additional actions that can be performed during placement – while the component is still floating on the cursor – are:

  • Press the Tab key to access the Properties for Schematic Component dialog, from where properties for the component can be changed on-the-fly.
  • Press the Alt key to constrain the direction of movement to the horizontal or vertical axis, depending on the initial direction of movement.
  • Press the Spacebar to rotate the component anti-clockwise or Shift+Spacebar for clockwise rotation. Rotation is in steps of 90°.
  • Press the X or Y keys to mirror the component along the X-axis or Y-axis respectively.

Tips

  1. When placing multiple instances of the same component (or multiple parts of the same component), it is advisable to set the designator of the first component instance (first part) before placing it (press the Tab key during placement to edit the object's properties). By doing this, the designator will automatically increment as each subsequent component instance is placed.
  2. The Miscellaneous Devices.IntLib library is part of your installation, and can be found in the \Users\Public\Documents\Altium\AD<VersionNumber>\Library folder, for a default installation of the software. It is also added to the Installed Libraries list by default - part of the Available Libraries set, which can be managed from the Available Libraries dialog.
  3. Browse Altium's vast library of free components from the Design Content - Unified Components area of the Altium website. As well as access to the Vault-based components, you can also download an up-to-date Integrated Library of each available component family.

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and an outline of the component will appear floating on the cursor. Simply move the component to the required position in the workspace and click, or press Enter, to place it.

Continue placing further instances of the same component, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit placement mode.

Additional actions that can be performed during placement – while the component is still floating on the cursor – are:

  • Press the Tab key to access the Properties for Schematic Component dialog, from where properties for the component can be changed on-the-fly.
  • Press the Alt key to constrain the direction of movement to the horizontal or vertical axis, depending on the initial direction of movement.
  • Press the Spacebar to rotate the component anti-clockwise or Shift+Spacebar for clockwise rotation. Rotation is in steps of 90°.
  • Press the X or Y keys to mirror the component along the X-axis or Y-axis respectively.

Tips

  1. When placing multiple instances of the same component (or multiple parts of the same component), it is advisable to set the designator of the first component instance (first part) before placing it (press the Tab key during placement to edit the object's properties). By doing this, the designator will automatically increment as each subsequent component instance is placed.
  2. The TI Logic Gate 2.IntLib library is part of a legacy set of Texas Instruments libraries, that can still be downloaded as a ZIP file using the following link: Texas Instruments (18MB). Once unzipped, copy the Texas Instruments folder into the main Library folder for the installation - \Users\Public\Documents\Altium\AD<VersionNumber>\Library, for a default installation of the software. Bear in mind that these are deemed to be 'frozen libraries'. They were built at the time of the launch of Altium Designer 10, and will not be updated.
  3. Browse Altium's vast library of free components from the Design Content - Unified Components area of the Altium website. As well as access to the Vault-based components, you can also download an up-to-date Integrated Library of each available component family.
