PCB Layout CAD : Net Operation
Connection Point is a function for setting one point as a reference potential. It is also referred to as a "Single Point Ground" or "Single Point Earth".
By combining two different GNDs into a single [Earth Point], it is possible to minimize the potential difference, which is a countermeasure for noise.
Using this function, schematic and PCB affinity is improved, and the single earth portion is considered by the DRC of the PCB design side, so a visual check is no longer needed, which results in greatly reducing routing work.
