I have certain components in my design in which I’m trying to have a separate GND, specifically, I chose GNDREF. The reason is, these particular ICs are very small SMT devices and the design rules for the rest of the board don’t allow the narrow trace widths and clearances needed to route power and ground to them. I thought it would be lower risk to keep the more conservative rules for the larger components, and only have the tighter rules for these small components. It worked to begin with, but something has happened, where eEschema will no longer recognize GNDREF. Here’s an example schematic:
And here are examples on the netlist showing that the GNDREF pins were changed to GND.
Does anyone know how I might fix this?
