Copying layout and placement¶
Often times, your design includes similar-but-not-identical sections such as voltage regulators. Wouldn’t it be nice if you’d only had to do layout and placement once and then copy it to the other instances? Horzion EDA lets you do just that in a simple two-step process.
Place and route any group as usual.
For each group, place the package you’d like the other packages to be referenced to at the desired position and place all other packages anywhere. Then, select all packages of the group that you’d like to apply the placement to and start the “Copy placement” tool. Click on the reference package (any pad or centroid) in the already placed group and all selected packages will be placed accordingly.
Select all tracks (other objects will be ignored) you want to copy in the routed group, start the “Copy tracks” tool and click on any package (any pad or centroid) in the destination group.
