AR# 1319: M1: EDIF2NGD doesn't recognize the parttype from a Viewlogic EDIF file.
M1: EDIF2NGD doesn't recognize the parttype from a Viewlogic EDIF file.
If you add the parttype in a Viewlogic schematic as an unattached attribute and generate an EDIF file with EDIFNETO, EDIF2NGD will not recognize the parttype.
To work around this problem, put a config symbol on the top level sheet and attach the part=<parttype> attribute to this symbol. This will cause the attribute to be written into EDIF file in a way that EDIF2NGD can recognize it.
