The Hierarchy output block is used to create signal outputs from a Schematic Hierarchy Tab. Hierarchy Boards are helpful for large schematic designs and for organizing design components.
To create a Hierarchy Output:
Select a hierarchy board tab at the bottom of the Schematic window.
Drag a Hierarchy Output block into the schematic.
This will create a Hierarchy Output block in the schematic and a corresponding output pin on the Hierarchy Board block.
Note: To see determine which Hierarchy output block belongs to a Hierarchy board output pin, hover the mouse pointer above the Hierarchy board pin and the output block's name will be displayed in the tool-tip (as in the image above).
See the Hierarchy Board System Example for a sample hierarchy board design.
