Differential Net

Rule check for whether a specific net name string is used for differential net name.

Figure 1.
  • Item: Input item name.
  • Differential Net Group: Enter target differential net group.
  • Filter: Sets net name strings for positive/Negative signal of differential pair net. (Prefix/Mid-String/Suffix)
  • Component Group: Define component group that specific differential nets should be connected.
  • Signal Name: Upon selecting this option, DFE checks whether the filter string of the signal name of the pins connected to the specific differential pair nets match the net name filter string.
  • Composite Net: Upon selecting this menu, DFE use composited power net instead of single power net. Double-click the item field, then Composite Power Net dialog will be displayed.

    Figure 2.
  • Passive Component: The DFE make composite net for which are connected through this passive component.
  • Pin Group Property: In the case of a passive component of 3pin or more, pin mapping information is required for composite. Set the Property Name with pin mapping information.
  • Exclude Net: Nets which should not be merged into composite net.
