'[EE]: Eagle connection problem'
2006\02\15@030505 by Rob Robson

Here's another head-scratcher from an Eagle novice.  The Vcc and ground connections are missing from most of the ICs on my board.  They don't appear on the schematic either, although they're present in the devices themselves (in the library).  This wouldn't be a huge problem if not for the fact that Eagle won't seem to let me route traces manually if there isn't already an "airwire" connection.  Is there some command to make the predefined device power connections appear on the schematic and/or the board?

Many thanks,
Rob

Hi Rob,

in eagle, simply use the invoke button ( somwhere on the left where "add"
is) and then select the power options as you like.

this will put a pair of pins on the SCH so that you can put power to them.

Regards
John

I'm not sure that's the issue here.  Even un-invoked power pins
with matching names (Vdd, Vcc, Gnd, Vss, etc) should appear on
the board as airwires.  If there aren't any airwires on the
board at all for the power pins, you may have a different problem.
(unless you were unlucky enough to have different power net names
for each chip on your design, and no power net with the same name
anywhere else in your design...)
