This will help you to understand the relationship between Schematic Design and PCB Design, and the purpose of the various libraries. How Will I Learn? You can work at your own pace; practising the techniques as you go along.
There are two ways to make use of this course: The provision of a special training file for each chapter makes this possible. This method is useful if you are an existing user and wish to learn the new techniques provided by an update. Knowledge – All that you texch is a knowledge of the fundamental principles involved in depicting electronic circuits as schematic or logic drawings. Practical Experience – Working experience of using windows and dialog boxes.
These will help you to be heach selective about which chapters to work through.
Cadstar software –
Chapter 1 To give a practical overview of the Cadstar For Windows interface, and to give you a run through of all the basic design operations, including many which are not obvious from looking at the interface. Chapter 2 To set up the Design Technology Assignments, Colours for the course design, and to create empty sheets ready to receive the design.
Chapter 3 To add Schematic selt, and connections. In this chapter you will learn how to terminate connections at Hierarchical Terminals. Chapter 7 To create a Cdastar structure in which there are components with different Parts allocated, and ‘not fitted’ components.
Chapter 8 To welf a Schematic symbol and store it in a new Symbol library. Chapter 9 To create a new Parts library; and to enter a new part into that library. Cafstar course design is a simple Analogue counter. The counter will be designed as a Hierarchical tree as shown below: Refer to the sheets in Appendix A as you work through the course – remove them from the folder and place them where you can see them.
They are installed in the Self Teach sub-directory. Each drawing taech dedicated to a particular sxm, and is in the state required to start each chapter.
Using these training Files, you can start the course at any chapter. They are useful if you only wish to learn, or practise using, one particular function within the software. The names of the Training Files and their particular function is shown below: The purpose of each block in the system is now described briefly: When Schematic symbols are added to the drawing they are obtained from this library.
This is where the graphical symbols are obtained from when components are added to the design. When you allocate part information to a symbol in Schematic Design and swap gates and pins in PCB Design, this is where the information is obtained from. The Drawing Blanks etach stored in this library. These figures are created using the Rectangle, Circle, and Polygon tool bar icons. Starting The Chapter The Windows system should be run up ready to use the Start button, or equivalent.
Pre-knowledge This course assumes that you are acquainted with the techniques of using the Windows interface. In particular you should know how to: Use the text boxes, check boxes, radio buttons, and scroll boxes on a dialog. If you are not, we recommend that you study Chapter 2 of the User’s Guide provided with Microsoft Windows. We do cadxtar need to refer to these tips during the course so: If appropriate, click on Show Tips on StartUp so that it is cadtsar deselected and then click teacy the Close button Do not worry if you find that the system has automatically opened up a Schematic or PCB design – casdtar previous user may have set up the system to do this.
Getting Acquainted With The Interface 1. You do this by setting up one of the tabbed dialogs within Options. Click on Tools on the menu bar On the drop down menu: Select Options The Options dialog is displayed. Along the top it shows a number of tabs for the different categories: Click on the Display tab The dialog below is displayed.

You are interested in the section labelled Windows. It is shown set up for this exercise, with the Schematic Design application starting maximised: You are now going to run up the Schematic Design application.
Select New on the File menu The following dialog is displayed: These enable you to start the design with a technology ecm is already defined for you. You can make modifications to this technology to make it suit your exact requirements – this saves time in having to create a technology from scratch. This template is designed for A1 size paper, and provides you with a Drawing Blank. A Schematic window showing an empty drawing blank – ready for your Schematic drawing – is also displayed.
The sheets can be part of a Hierarchical tree, or on the same level as other tezch electrically related by means of Signal References: This is depicted below: The link between Hierarchical Blocks and the circuit they represent is made by means of Hierarchical Block Terminals.
Toolbars – visibility can be toggled by right hand mouse button Menu Options – obtained from ‘drop-dow n’ menus.
Activated by Z Cursor Position command. Floating Toolbar Current Units of Measure you can click here to change Each area above is described in more detail next. Tool Bar Icons Toolbars contain the icons which enable you to select frequently used interactive operations for design work e.
The visibility of toolbars can be toggled using the Toolbars option View menu. The composition of any toolbar can be set up on the dialog displayed by the Customise option. Working from the left: Commands, Prompts, and Description of the Menus – This box prompts you for the next action to be carried out e.
It also shows the one character command being entered e. S IC2, G 50, V, The same box also displays a short description of the option highlighted or the icon pointed at. Interrupted Redraw Indicator – This small box turns red to indicate that a redraw has been interrupted. This warns you that the displayed design might not be complete. Co-ordinates – This box displays the position of the cursor as a pair of X and Y co-ordinates – the X co-ordinate being the first co-ordinate.
The co-ordinates are displayed in the units currently set up in the Units box described below. Relative Co-ordinates, and The Radius of Arcs and Circles – This box displays the displacement of the cursor from a selected start position, in the X and Y directions.
If the cursor is displaced at an angle, the X and Y vectors are displayed. You can zero these values by entering the Z command. Units – The units displayed in this box are the current units in use as set up by the Units option on the Settings menu.
If you click on this box a menu drops down enabling you to change the units. Grids – This box displays the distance between the ‘snap’ points on the current Working Grid. Other Information Boxes – These boxes on the right of the Status Bar display information appropriate to the operation being carried out. Open Design displays the filenames of the designs that are currently open in the ‘workspace’. You can ‘drag and drop’ from this list directly into a design.
Current Design lists the contents of the current design under headings such as Components, Nets, Areas. You can select items under these headings to display and modify their Item Properties.
You can accurately modify the shape by entering new XY co-ordinates: Obtaining Help Schematic Design should be run up with the interface displayed. To practice using the Help on cadstaf dialog box.
You are going to use several methods of obtaining the same piece of information. The first is obtaining Context sensitive help – information obtained by pressing the Help button on the active dialog box. The Options dialog is displayed. Move the cursor around the dialog in the Help window Notice that the cursor changes to a hand symbol when it is positioned over certain buttons.
This means that there is Help available on that parameter. As stated previously, you need help on the Interaction dialog. Click on the Interaction tab at the top of the dialog Help on the Interaction dialog is now displayed: Click on Two Segment – 90 Degrees Help on this parameter is now displayed.
To caddstar back to the Interaction dialog, click on the Back button at the top of the Help window You may have an extra ‘pane’ displayed to the left of the topic window – this should be showing a table of Contents.
