netlist format to import ub netlist

Which version of UB, which version of Orcad.

Up to UB5.7 UB could only import < SDT IV netlist and only using command line utility on CD to convert netlist to net/plc files. It was called ORC2UC.exe I think.

You also needed to have SDT installed with the enviroment set for lib paths and all other SDT stuff.

I never got it to work right.

For latest version I beleive you must use UC or MSIM to import SCH then use UC or MSIM exported utility to create netlist for UB.

UB is a nice SW but it would be faster to learn Orcad Layout than make a netlist by hand although as both the .net file and the .plc & .net file are ASCII you could use a text editor & some macros to convert yourself.

Just make sure you have valid names in the UB PCB library before import.

Oh dear UB, seems a long time ago now.

orcad.sch

Forgot

If you make netlist make sure all names comply with max 8 char names and no illegal characters like space and so on. UB will just cough and die if you do this (This program has performed and illegal .....)
