I have design a single side PCB on Allegro 15.7. Some times it was necessary to implement a SMD Jumper for jumping over other signals. I have place this jumpers on the schematic (design entry CIS) and connected bode pins of the jumper to the same signal.
It works, but I have a small cosmetic problem, for each jumper I placed, I get on the Layout guide (open connection).
Does some one know if there is a possibility to design a library symbol with two pins that can be automatically connected to the same potential?
Thanks in advance
Yes, this can be done. Select the part > right click > Edit Part > select the pin and change it's type to 'Power' - a power type pin is (automatically) connected to the net where in the net name is same as the (power) pin name.
Use a zero ohm resistor~Richard
Thanks for the responses, A zero ohm resistor has the same problem; each end of the component will be connected to a different net. So that it is not possible to connect both pins to the same net as example GND or so on.I will try to define the pins as power pins.Gustavo
I had tried to change the pin type to power pin. For the schematic it is clear, but on the layout I always get a ratsnet on between both pins. The result is the same as using a zero ohm resistor.Gustavo
That is a snapshot of the layout, were you can see the ratsnets. The PCB is functional routed by 100%. The big risk is the possibility to overlook really open connections.
