    Delay of a trace

    pedro_franca_costa

      Hello,

       

      In expedition 7.9.4 i double click a trace and i get the delay in ns and the length in mm.

       

      Now in Xpedition because the double clicking a trace now select the component pins this is a problem i have to deselect the pins to know the delay.

       

      Someone knows a way to double click and select the entire trace and the pins of the components are not selected too? This would be nice.

       

      Thanks

          Hello,

           

          you are rigth, double click on a trace in VX1 does select also the component pins. To get the delay you can open the Constrainet Editor window and select a trace.

          Use the 'Actual' bottom at the top to switch on the delay.

          You can also see the number of vias used for a net, or you can select more than one trace to compare length or delays. Just open the Constrainet Editor and select a couple of nets.

           

          Thanks

            I am a big fan of Analysis>Target Lengths  It was in 7.9.x but it has been updated for VX and a big help when tuning Busses in Xpedition!

             

            If you set your tuning in CES to be TOF this form will show time instead of length.  I am dealing with packages so I have to switch the Units and number of decimal places in both CES and Xpedition.
