Question

When I run a DRC on my schematic, I receive the error: "ORCAP-1620: Port has a type which is inconsistent with other ports on the net." 

How can I resolve this error?


Solution

This error occurs when different types of ports exist on different schematic pages but are assigned the same name. As shown in the screen image below for example: Page1, Bidirectional port name is IN. Page2, Output Port name is also IN.



To resolve this error, select the signal attached to the port and then select Signals from your right mouse pop-up menu. This opens a list of all signals connected in all pages. Use this list to navigate to every page of the signal. Then, select ports and edit their properties, changing them all to the same type.
