hi ppl

what is the easiest way to stop short circuit DRC errors (but still keep the
grounds separate elsewhere) on a component that is just a copper trace that
connects two different grounds in one spot.
P99SE: Lomax Virtual short but make sure you are aware of the gerber resolution issues and tell your manufacturer what you have done. Go back through the archives for description of the Lomax virtual short. basically two pads very close but not touching (say 0.05 mils) and a suitable clearance design rule targeting just these pads allowing such a fine clearance. You need to produce gerbers with fine resolution to ensure that pads do not drift during plotting. The gap is too small to plot and too small to manufacture --> short.

DXP: use a NetTie component.
