- Is it possible to have multiple sheets in one project? I cannot seem to create any other sheets but the top level.
Yes, right click schematic tab and choose "Add Schematic Page"
- Is it possible to use an external schematic tool like Altium Designer which I am already very experienced with in order to be more productive, and then bring this in as a Verilog netlist for the project as an alternative to using the Cypress schematic editor which, to be honest, is a bit like having one hand tied behind my back?
You can Add Existing Item to project workspace thru File menu.
Yes, you can add a verilog file into the workspace. This is a cut and paste operation as opposed to
an import. Eg. add a new verilog file, and paste contents into that. But there is no direct import of an
Altium project to the best of my knowledge.
Thanks for the answers!!! Very helpful.
Why are some document parameter fields read only? (eg. Created By - I started my design from a reference design which was created by cypress, but it's evolved to the point where I feel I can truly call it my own but I am unable to edit this field).
Not sure, but file a CASE on this it must be an easy change.
What is the file format of the Psoc creator schematic editor? If it's based on ViewLogic or Mentor Logic I might be able to translate back and forth between PSOC creator and Altium Designer...
Same here, ask in the CASE....
To create a technical or issue case at Cypress -
“Create a Case”
You have to be registered on Cypress web site first.
The schematic file format is a .NET serialization format. So its not compatible with any other schematic editor out there. That would also be problematic, since the file needs to contains all the parameters for the components that you have in it.
