Electrical Type

Dear Members

I am new to KiCAD and PCB designing.I am creating a new symbol but i am a little confused about Electrical type in Pin properties window…What should be electrical type for 1) VCC 2) GND
3) OE(output enable input pin).

VCC and GND pins are both of type “Power input”.
( “Power Output” is used for the outputs of voltage regulators).

OE pin has an electrical tyepe of “input”. It never delivers current, and only senses the voltage applied to it.

The ERC checking is only about how voltages and currents flow. It has nothing to do with the actual function of the pins or it’s use inside IC’s.
