Hi. I am new to KiCad and I have a question. I’m working on a schematic and I have run into a problem where I am getting an error about conflicting pins.
This happened because I got an error about a some pins being connected but not being “driven”. I read that had something to do with needing the pin that is supplying power to be marked as a power pin.
So, I went into the library and edited the component (a component I created) and marked the input pin as being a power input. Then I modified the component that is the power source to have some of its pins as power output pins.
This caused this warning: “Conflict problem between pins”. I want to have a Molex connector that is a 2x2 connector. Two of the pins are +12V and the other two are GND. I took the CONN 2x2 and duplicated it and saved it into a library for a Molex 39-28-1043 connector (which is a 2x2 power connector) and marked two of the pins as being “power output”. Then I added that component to my project and attached a global label to each pin that says “+12V”. The other two pins are attached to global labels “GND”.
I get the conflict error between the two +12V pins. Is this because I’m trying to attach two output pins together? I also have +12V labels on the things in my project that need +12V.
How can I resolve this?
