Hierarchical Blocks

Let's create a hierarchical block from an existing piece of circuit.

Making a Hierarchical Schematic Block in eCADSTAR

What is a Hierarchy

Hierarchical blocks are normally used for top-down designs, where the block is drawn on the top-level schematic and associated signal pins are added.

Benefits of a Hierarchical Design:

  • Hierarchy reduces the workload for identical blocks of circuitry.
  • Hierarchy encourages team design.
  • Hierarchy enables design reuse.

Only Pay for What You Need

A flexible, modular approach allows you to build an eCADSTAR bundle to fit your PCB design requirements.
