#1 Configurable Pins on Block Generator

Hi there,


I am creating a block for a controller with 50 pins. Many of the pins can be configured in multiple ways. For example, one pin is DIN/AIN.


What are the pros/cons of using a Digital input or an Analog input on the block generator settings since I need to pick one for these configurable pins. I guess I am looking for high level advice about the different connection types in the block generator tool including the relay channel type.



IO types can be changed when used in context.

Thanks for posting on the forum.

The way to handle configurable IOs in SkyCAD is to simply choose DI or DO (depending if you want to show ports on the top or right side (or top and bottom for IEC), and change IO types when the component is used in a project.

This tutorial explains how to change IO types.

Let us know if this properly answers your question.

Thank you for pointing me in

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I believe I am good to go for the moment :)
