    Duplicate net names in different Busses

    ryan_boudreau

      If I have two different buses with different names can the net names within the buses be the same or does every net have to have a unique name? For example:

       

       

      Bus Name          Net Names

      DC_MOTOR1     Enable, Dir

      DC_MOTOR2     Enable, Dir

          You can definitely use the same net name in two or more bus definitions but they will represent the same nets. If you rip net Enable out of DC_MOTOR1 and DC_MOTOR2 there will be only one net called Enable. Export > Quick Connection View with option "Flat Mode" is a quick way to understand how nets are connected together if you have a doubt as it shows the flat nets which are used by CES and Expedition.
