Ic Pin Numbers
The integrated circuit (IC) is a fundamental concept of electronic design and the IC pins give your device its electrical properties. Correct pin placement is crucial and with multiple locations and functions, properly identifying the pin numbers is key to ensuring your component works as planned. Let Altium Designer help you design more efficiently with a powerful Component Pin Editor.
Altium Designer’s Schematic Editor gives you user-friendly drop-down menus that allow you to easily add, swap, delete or move pins and enable auto-increment pin placement– reducing the number of crossover connections and decreasing design time.
The Component Pin Editor feature can be accessed through Altium’s Schematic Editor and Schematic Library and allows you to then access and edit the following information for each pin:
Designator– the numerical identifier of the pin.
Name– the display name for the pin.
Desc– the description for the pin.
Footprint Model Mapping– the pad of the indicated linked footprint model to which this pin of the schematic component is mapped.
Type– the electrical type of the pin.
Owner– the parent part to which the pin is associated.
Show– reflects whether the pin is visible on the sheet (enabled) or hidden (disabled).
Number– this option is used to determine whether the designator for the pin is displayed (enabled) or hidden (disabled) when the parent part is placed on a schematic sheet.
Name– this option is used to determine whether the display name for the pin is displayed (enabled) or hidden (disabled) when the parent part is placed on a schematic sheet.
