    I have a multi-layer design with multiple ground plane layers. But these have issues with ground loops. How can I set something in PCB Editor 16.5 that will only connect vias to one ground plane layer and leave all other layers unconnected, so that I can use a single ground connection point.

  • Customer Support Recommended – Appnote on Implementing the Force-Sense Kelvin Connection

    The use of separate force (F) and sense (S) connections (often referred to as a Kelvin connection ) is a common requirement in the PCB design.
