About Connectors
A connector is a specific type of component symbol with the parameter and value OBJ_TYPE = CONNECTOR. A connector can use two additional parameters; GENDER (MALE or FEMALE) at the component level and ENTRY_PORT at the pin level. Connectors may have wires and cables routed between the nodes or pins on the symbol.
There are two types of connectors in Diagram:
Fixed—The connector appears as a drawn, fixed-shape symbol, either created in session or retrieved from a library. Fixed connectors are defined, stored, and added like components and differ only in parameters.
Parametric—The parametric connector appears as a standard symbol, its shape determined by the specified connector attributes, such as gender and number of pins. When the connector attributes are modified, the appearance of the symbol updates accordingly.
