Components.create_port_on_component(component, net_list, port_type=0, do_pingroup=True, reference_net='gnd', port_name=None, solder_balls_height=None, solder_balls_size=None, solder_balls_mid_size=None)[source]#

Create ports on a component.

componentstr or self._pedb.component

EDB component or str component name.

net_liststr or list of string.

List of nets where ports must be created on the component. If the net is not part of the component, this parameter is skipped.

port_typeSourceType enumerator, CoaxPort or CircuitPort

Type of port to create. CoaxPort generates solder balls. CircuitPort generates circuit ports on pins belonging to the net list.


True activate pingroup during port creation (only used with combination of CoaxPort), False will take the closest reference pin and generate one port per signal pin.

refnetstr or list of string.

list of the reference net.


Port name for overwriting the default port-naming convention, which is [component][net][pin]. The port name must be unique. If a port with the specified name already exists, the default naming convention is used so that port creation does not fail.

solder_balls_heightfloat, optional

Solder balls height used for the component. When provided default value is overwritten and must be provided in meter.

solder_balls_sizefloat, optional

Solder balls diameter. When provided auto evaluation based on padstack size will be disabled.

solder_balls_mid_sizefloat, optional

Solder balls mid diameter. When provided if value is different than solder balls size, spheroid shape will be switched.

double, bool

Salder ball height vale, False when failed.
