Unconnected Wires

Parent category: Violations Associated with Nets

Default report mode:

Summary

This violation occurs when a wire object is detected to be floating - not electrically connected to any part of the circuit design.

Notification

If compiler errors and warnings are enabled for display on the schematic (enabled on the Schematic - Compiler page of the Preferences dialog) an offending object will display a colored squiggle beneath it. A notification is also displayed in the Messages panel in the following format:

Unconnected line <Location1> To <Location2>,

where:

Location1 is the X,Y coordinates for the start point of the floating wire.

Location2 is the X,Y coordinates for the end point of the floating wire.

Recommendation for Resolution

Ensure that the offending wire object is connected into the circuit as required. If the wire is redundant, simply delete it from the design.
