Hi, newbie question: I got a voltage regulator on a local schema, which gives me errors… tried to work it out with no luck. I suspect this has to do with the fact that the regulator has an output pin. This pin is connected to a schema output label (and connected in the main schema).
What am I doing wrong here ?
ErrType(5): Conflict problem between pins. Severity: error
** @ (21,59 mm,22,86 mm): Pin 1 (Power output) of component #FLG020 is connected to **
** @ (76,20 mm,26,67 mm): pin 3 (Power output) of component U11 (net 29).**
I think what you need to do is eliminate the power flag and use a label on the net. Or the “+5V power-flag symbol” Similar to Vcc but I don’t believe it is an actual PWR_FLAG in the same sense. If it complains, just go with a Label.
Well, as said earlier, you now have two power outputs connected together. I don’t think you need a power flag there. In the initial the power flag is connected ground and showing a conflict there. I’m guilty of glossing these things over but I’m not sure that one is needed for ground.
The reason a short is suspected is because the +5 shouldn’t be connected to the ground power flag. I’m working on very little sleep though so if I’m totally off base forgive me. I normally get to sleep at 4am. I have to get up in two days at 4am to catch a flight and I’m struggling to adjust my schedule.
EDIT. Heard the ding as I was typing. Should have checked. Rene got me on the right track in terms of thinking about the error. I’ll stick with my lack of sleep theory. I’ll have to heart Rene’s post. V5 will make this easier when it comes out though.
The text indicates that Pin 2 is connected to Pin 1 of BT1; this is clearly a short. The short is not at the battery, but was intentionally created at the left of the screen grab. The tricky part is that the arrow is not where the problem actually is on the schematic. The text is however, describing the issue perfectly.
Here is an example of two power outputs being tied together:
The text indicates there is a power flag attached to pin Pin1 of the battery; and there is.
Power flags are pins assigned as “Power output”. But any pin can be assigned as a “Power output” if it makes sense. A battery having it’s pins set as “Power output” is a good example; same for the output pin on a regulator.
