    Check dangling lines in Design Entry CIS Reply

    Hi,

    Does anybody know how to check a schematic sheet (DA CIS 16.3) for dangling lines?
    I would prefer not to wait until I have reached the pcb stage to find single pin nets.

    Thanks,
    Jim O'Mahony

    Hi Jim - Not sure of CIS but HDL allows for checking using Project Manager. Going into Tools - Rules Checker - Graphical Rules - graphic_unconnected_pin creates a marker file that will take you directly to the unconnected pins within the design.   I'm afraid I can't help you with CIS.

    Theres a DRC rule that will search for sigle node nets. Select the dsn file in the project window then Tools - Design Rules Check. It's under the electrical rules tab
