Ultrascale Schematic Symbol and Footprint

Jump to solution

I'm wondering if anyone has a speedy (and accurate) way to create an Altium schematic symbol for a Kintex Ultrascale part - specifically the KU060.  Altium doesn't seem to have this component on their website.  I read about some people using the ascii file released by Xilinx, but I don't see a way in Altium to use this file to create a schematic symbol.  Does anyone have a trick for using this file in Altium?

 

I figure I'm going to have to create this symbol manually, but was hoping someone out there might be able to save me some time and potential errors in my symbol by showing me a better way to create the symbol.  Fingers crossed.

 

Thanks.

The trick is to use the smart grid paste function in Altium to get the pin numbers and names in there. First convert the ASCII pin file into an Excel file with different columns for the pin numbers and names. In Altium, create an array of pins (however many are on the package you're using) and select all of them. In Excel copy the entire spreadsheet then in Altium open the SCH List window. Right-click and use the smart grid paste (or insert.. it's been a while since I did it) and follow the dialog box. Note also that if you're going to use the pin-package delay parameter, Xilinx specifies this in picoseconds, but Altium expects in in mils, you'll have to convert ps to mils based on the signal flight time on your board.

 

Hope that helps.

The schematic symbol is way too large to fit into schematic page. I am looking for Altium schematic symbol for XCKU115-L1FLVB1760I

which is in proper sections so it fits into schematic drawing page and also can be selected such as the power connection, clock connection, etc. to make it easier to develop schematic using XCKU115-L1FLVB1760I 

 

Thank you
