This reference guide details the differences between the ODA Master Library and the standard Mentor Central Library. Several procedures for using the ODA Master Library are explained, including setup, schematic symbols, cells (PCB footprints) including padstacks, and PDBs. The use of symbols in the library is explained, as are symbol partitions and symbol naming conventions. Detailed information on creating symbols is provided, and instructions for editing existing symbols are provided. There are numerous examples, including graphics and tables, which illustrate how to create and modify symbols. Finally, portions of two ODA symbol libraries have been included to provide further information and examples.
