The command BUS is used to draw bus connections onto the Bus layer of a schematic diagram. Bus_name has the following form:
SYNONYM:partbus,partbus,..where SYNONYM can be any name. Partbus is either a simple net name or a bus name range of the following form:
Name[LowestIndex..HighestIndex]where the following condition must be met:
0 <= LowestIndex <= HighestIndex <= 511
If a name is used with a range, that name must not end with digits, because it would become unclear which digits belong to the Name and which belong to the range.
If a bus wire is placed at a point where there is already another bus wire, the current bus wire will be ended at that point. This function can be disabled with "SET AUTO_END_NET OFF;", or by unchecking "Options/Set/Misc/Auto end net and bus".
If the curve or @radius parameter is given, an arc can be drawn as part of the bus (see the detailed description in the WIRE command).
Bus name examples
A[0..15] RESET DB[0..7],A[3..4] ATBUS:A[0..31],B[0..31],RESET,CLOCK,IOSEL[0..1]If no bus name is used, a name of the form B$1 is automatically allocated. This name can be changed with the NAME command at any time.
The line width used by the bus can be defined for example with
SET Bus_Wire_Width 40;to be 40 mil. (Default: 30 mil).
