    Netlist error in DxDesigner

    jayakrishnanrv

      When i generate netlist from DxDesigner following errors generates,

       

      pcb: Note 5996: Using Config File C:\MentorGraphics\9.5PADS\SDD_HOME\standard\pads95.cfg

      pcb: Warning 5720: Check I0001024002.err for VIEWBASE messages

      pcb: Note 6077: I0001024002 ppn IC304[4]: Missing shape pin         For these I have made a hetero symbol with 2 parts.Added signal property for power and ground pins (+5V:8,GND:4) How to connect with wire?

          The various error and warning messages mean this according to the PCB Interface Error Messages manual:

           

          PCB: Note 6077: The indicated pin is defined on the symbol for this package, but another symbol with the same PKG_TYPE does not have the pin defined. Look at all symbols with the same PKG_TYPE.

           

          PCB: Warning 7203: You have a NC property attached to the pin, but this is connected to a net. If as you indicate you have updated the symbol, have you updated it in the design (set Flag-out-of-date symbols to on in Settngs - Advanced).

           

          PCB: Warning 6083: The net conected to the pin does not connect to any other pins. I would look for the net elsewhere in the design using Find.
