Hi,

Is there a way to connect 2 net (in the top design) that have different name.

I've got a net call PWM_Clock in a sub sheet with my PWM stuff.

And I want to be able to connect it with another net PWM_BLDC_Clock.

But I would like to keep the name. So I need to have the 2 name net in the same sheet to do that, and I havn't succeeded to do that.

thanks for any help

roboteux,

To connect two wires (buses, nets) with different names, one can use the Dummy component:

The Dummy: empty component for digital bus routing

 

Just place a component between the nets.

roboteux,

You cannot connect two digital nets with different names across pages.  However, you can create a net on one page and have it connected to a net on another page (with the same name).

Question:  Is PWM_Clock and PWM_BLDC_Clock their own driven clocks?   

If so, you can use a Multiplexer or Virtual Mux for controlling which clock is used.

I not, you can use a Buf component.  There is a single propagation delay through it.

If you can tolerate a single BUS_CLOCK delay, you can use a Sync or UDB Clock Enable component.
