Summary

The Ansys EDB Export Options dialog is used to configure what is to be included when exporting Ansys EDB files.

Access

The dialog is accessed from the PCB editor by selecting File » Export » Ansys EDB.

The Ansys EDB Exporter extension must be installed in order to access this dialog. The extension icon can be found on the Purchased tab of the Extensions & Updates page, which is located by clicking the drop-down then choosing Extensions and Updates.

Hover over the icon then click to download the extension. Altium Designer must be restarted to complete the installation.

Options/Controls

Component Types

  • Resistors – enter the resistor component value that is mapped to the property for RLC components in the Ansys component model that you want to be included in the export process.
  • Capacitors – enter the capacitor component value that is mapped to the property for RLC components in the Ansys component model that you want to be included in the export process.
  • Inductors – enter the inductor component value that is mapped to the property for RLC components in the Ansys component model that you want to be included in the export process.
  • Integrated Circuits – enter the integrated circuit component value that is mapped to the property for RLC components in the Ansys component model that you want to be included in the export process.
  • Input/Output – enter the input/output component value that is mapped to the property for RLC components in the Ansys component model that you want to be included in the export process.
The component type (resistor, capacitor, inductor) is deduced from the component's designator prefix, R – resistor, L – inductor, C- capacitor. Components with any other designator prefix are assigned the Part Type property value of Other in ANSYS. The component value is mapped to the R, L or C property for RLC components in the ANSYS component model. This can be accessed through the Model Info button in ANSYS.

Units

Select either Imperial or Metric to be used as the preferred unit of measurement during export.

Others

  • Merge Net Tie Nets – when enabled, if a design contains nets connected by Net-Tie components, these nets will report as distinguished single nets in the netlist.
  • Override Part Number With – when this option is enabled, specify which parameter should be used as a Local Part Name rather than using 'Comment' by default. Enable the option then use the associated drop-down to select the desired parameter or type the parameter name into the field.

    The option is available only if the Ansys EDB Exporter extension you have installed is version 1.0.12.180 or later.
