Is the below “feature” possible in Kicad?
In TinyCAD I could create a gate (or section) symbol and the gates would each be an entity suffixed by A,B,C…N
For instance take the LM339 quad comparator:
The symbol would be setup defining a comparator primitive with Inputs + and - and an output.
The A section will have pins 4,5 & 2
The B section will have pins 6,7 & 1
This way one could swap comparator assignments in a circuit by simply changing from A to B or B to C etc.
Probably a poor explanation but I hope folks can get the idea.
Unit A of the LM339 has pins 5, 4 and 2:
So if you want to do something similar, then start by copying it to a personal library.
After I posted I found a youtube video of how to do it. I think all I needed is to know was “could it be done” After that I was motivated to find it in the symbol program.
Oddly enough, up to know I’ve not had to use a multi part device so I never saw one in the library.
