Netlist issue using powernet

Question asked by rmoore on Jan 19, 2016

Hi All,

     We commonly use the following properties to define the trace width.

 

MAX_TRACK_WIDTH    30
MIN_TRACK_WIDTH    30
REC_TRACK_WIDTH    30

 

I am noticing that some nets that have the following extra properties that the above properties do not work.

CONNWIDTH    8.000

HIGHLIGHT    NO

MAXWIDTH    8.000

MINWIDTH    8.000

NETGROUP    0

NETWEIGHT    50

PLANELAYERS   

RECONNTYPE    STD

ROUTELAYERS   

SPACINGBYLAYER   

TESTPOINT    NO

 

I did not add these properties and I am not sure where they came from.

I am using powernet to create a net list.  If I examine the netlist that is created the properties that I do want are not there for many of the nets.  For the nets that do not have these extra properties seem to be OK. I am using powernet V2.0b07 and Orcad version 16.6 s055.  So my question is which of the unwanted properties is causing the problem?

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Roger
