Want to compare number of vias to number of pins for signal nets. (yeah, don't ask...)
Sound like 'make work' tasks. Someone working from home (your engineer?) and needing something to do?
We pack hundreds of parts in a board the size of a playing card, extra vias kill your power/gnd planes .
No extra signal vias except for fanout means more power/gnd planes left behind, which we really need.
Between the fanout automation and the push/shove interaction, Allegro allows me to be the schedule AND design hero (at least in a P*DS shop).
Now I can put it in a pie chart next time I have to defend getting my Allegro maintenance reimbursed.
You could use Find By Query and just export the results to a CSV File. :-)
Thanks so much, Mike. Onward to the arguments!
