Description of the collection of the Subsystem component in Schematic Editor.

Component Icon


Subsystem components can be used for storing multiple schematic elements in an independent block either for the purpose of simplifying complex schematics or when there is a logical separation between elements. Inputs and outputs from Subsystems are managed by Port components.

A Subsystem component can be created by placing an empty subsystem (preloaded with two electrical ports) from the Library (System -> Subsystem) in the schematic.

Another way to create a subsystem component is to select a part of the schematic and perform the Create subsystem from selection action, either by choosing it from the Edit menu or by right-clicking selected elements. A subsystem will be automatically created with all selected elements inside and with all the required ports.

For more information on how to use subsystems to simplify models as part of a multi-level modeling approach, please refer to the Subsystem elements page.
