    Detection of floating or rogue Micro-Vias? Reply

    Hello,

           I am new to Allegro and have just started to look into Skill.  I am working on a board that has gone through many stages of development. The board outline, component placement and routing has been changed multiple times after a large amount of micro-vias have been placed. The potential for "floating or rogue" microvias is huge and its extremely laborous to screen for as they are all stacked. Is there a way to detect floating micro vias with the use of Skill? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Clint

    Hi Clint,

    Look at the Quick Reports (in your Tools menu) for the Dangling Lines, Via and Antenna Report.

    Hi Dave,

              Thanks for the pointer! I scanned through the quick reports options before creating this post and didnt think I saw anything of interest. Its listed as Tools>Quick Reports>Dangling Lines Report.  I wasn't aware that this included vias.  Thanks again for the help!
