Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to place a Module Entry object onto the active Multi-board Schematic document (*.MbsDoc). A module entry is placed within a module to designate a connection point, and is actively associated with pins and nets on the connector in the child PCB design referenced by the module. The overall multi-board system design involves interconnection of modules (through associated module entry objects), providing a logical capture of how the multiple PCBs in the design are connected.
This command can be accessed from the Multi-board Schematic Editor by:
- Choosing the Place » Entry command from the main menus.
- Locating and using the Entry command () on the Active Bar.
- Right-clicking in the workspace and choosing the Place » Entry command from the context menu.
After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and you will enter module entry placement mode. Placement is made by performing the following sequence of actions:
- Move the module entry attached to the cursor over a placed module on the document.
- Adjust the position of the entry in relation to an edge of the module, then click to anchor the entry to the required edge and complete placement.
- Continue placing further module entries, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit placement mode.
- Most aspects of a placed entry are available for editing through the Properties panel. If the panel is already open, simply select a placed entry to populate the panel with its associated properties. If the panel is not open, double-click on the entry to access it.
- Defaults for this primitive type can be defined on the Multi-board Schematic - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog.
