I am creating two ground planes on the top layer using Polygon shape, CLASS Etch, SUBCLASS-Top. I have routed the NON-ground nets on the bottom layer and left only the Ground nets for the TOP layer. Will the anitpad of the through-hole pins prevent the ground plane from connecting to the non-ground nets? Do I have to go to the padstack designer for each pin and Enable Antipads as Route Keepouts (ARK)? If I enable this, will I break the connection of the pin to the net on both top and bottom layers.
In reply to oldmouldy:
Thanks for the info. If I want the top layer ground plane a certain distance from the non-ground throughhole pin, do I increase the anitpad dimension in "modify design padstack " menu? I want to prevent potential arcing from a signal pin to a ground plane surrounding the throughhole signal pin.
In reply to fvascon:
You can do..... but it might be easier to use the Constraint Manager and set a Spacing distance between the nets so that you have a different rule for different nets. It's much quicker and the dynamic shapes (planes) will obey the constraint manager rules. Look at Parsyseda youtube channel for how to videos on spacing constraints and shapes in general for more info.
