    netlist error pins with same name Reply

    Hi,
    I'm getting an error that I have duplicate pin names on my netlsit.  I have a few ICs with GND, VCC and NC (No connect) multipal pins.  I remember getting the warning when I created the sysmbol but ignored it.  Is there a way to get around this error without having to rename all the pins different?
    Thanks

    For the GND, and VCC pins, set the pin type to power. Be sure to to check the pins visible box. For your no connect pins, remove the pins from the symbol, add a NC property to the symbol. The value for the NC property will be a comma delimited pin list.
    Regards,

    Hi,
    Solution: To resolve the duplicate pin problem you can either:

    manually edit the IO pin names to be unique

    or

    use the Library Correction Utility and then replace the cache.

    To use the Library Correction Utility and then replace the cache, perform the following steps:

    Choose Accessories - LibCorrectionUtil - Library Verification/Correction to open the Library Correction Utility dialog box

    In the Select Library for Correction box, specify the library to be corrected.

    Under Verify / Correct library components with, check Duplicate Pin Names.

    Under Options, select Correct.

    Click OK.

    Click OK to close the message box that appears.

    Choose Design - Replace Cache to update the pin names on the part.
