How to Make Multiple Schematic Symbols for Different Parts of A Single Component

Hi, I am working on a project using the ADSP-21489, which is a 176 pin IC. When I make a custom symbol it’s huge, too large to fit on a single schematic sheet.

I am wondering how I can break this up by creating multiple blocks for the different parts of the component.

I’d ideally like these to be able to be instantiated separately, sort of like the different op-amps in a single IC package, except that each block would have different pins.

How can I do this?

KiPart was created to handle making multi-unit symbols for large parts like this.

That is what I was looking for. Thanks so much!

Don’t forget to set the “all symbols are not interchangeable” flag in the symbol properties dialog.
