Schema library structure

suleymancskn , 01-09-2022, 11:23 PM
Hi Fedevel Family;

I'm creating my own schema library.
for example i have many resistors with different values. I provide in-house tracking with the ID numbers of the resistors.
As the number of resistors increases, my file size increases for this reason.
For example, can I create a component named 1206 resistor and create subcomponents such as 1R, 22R,33R.. under it?
Note that I want to give a separate ID for each component.
Thanks in advance for your help, regards.

You didn't say what software you use. Generally, in libraries there should be Components (includes for example info about manufacturer, part, supplier, ...), Symbols (schematic symbol), Footprints (pcb footprint). A component should be linked to it's specific symbol and footprint.

Sometimes libraries are created only from symbols (schematic symbol + info about component) and footprints (pcb footprint).

Thanks robertferanec for your answer.I am using Altium Designer. Can I create a single resistor and sub-resistors (different value) under this resistor like logic gates?

There are no "sub-resistors" in Altium.

This will give you an idea how it works:

Create one library for resistors, another for capacitors, and again another for...
- Inductors
- Discretes
- Power
- Logic
- Connectors
- Board (fiducials, etc.)
No need for sub components.
Name the parts so you can sort it the way you want. (Size -> Value)
