  • Connecting Vias to internal split planes

    Hi,

    I am trying to split the internal planes to connect my circuit to power planes. Hence I came with this issue with the vias, was is that outer circle outside the vias? should be completely cover the split plane? See the attached image.

    cheers,
    Mihai

    that is normal.. its a thermal relief to connect to you powerplane, you can change it in the rule .. connect style -> direct
    but i would leave it as is..

      Indeed, you are right, I was acting on the assumption that I had made a direct connection for those, hence my question. However, now is clear.

      Cheers,
      Mihai

        As Paul van Avesaath noted, what you see is thermal relief used to connect VIA to a plane. I normally connect VIAs directly to planes:
