Tech-Tip: DF 2019 New Feature: How to do checking the unconnected length


In DF 2019 we have new feature call “Checking the Unconnected Length”.

But this feature is not in the What’s New online help, since it is execute by simple macro syntax.

  1. Let open the DF 2019 online help and open the page:

Home > Guide to Applications > Checking Design Data > Checking the Unconnected Length


  • To find macro syntax click link “unclength-report”.


  • Copy & Paste the “( unclength-report )” to register it for one of User Command.


  • Add it under Quick Access Tool bar


  • Select some of un-connected nets and execute this command will get report of Unconnected Length.


  • Execute this command without select any of un-connected net will get this message.

On our way to achieving sustainable product development, we ask ourselves one central question: how do we engineer products so future generations have enough resources to prosper? Up to four-fifths of a product's lifetime emissions are determined by decisions made at the design stage. Having all the tools needed to get those decisions right is essential for designing sustainable products that meet performance and quality requirements while using fewer resources across the entire life cycle.

PCB constraints should drive your design flow. Here's why.

We've all heard of PCB design constraints. They're those little things that limit our ability to create the perfect board in very short periods of time. But what exactly are they? And why do they matter? This blog post elaborates on PCB constraints and why they should drive your design flow.
