Rule Category: High Speed

Rule Classification: Unary

Summary

This rule specifies the maximum number of vias permitted for each individual net in the current design.

Use appropriate rule scoping to target a specific net (or collection of nets), using query expression keywords such as InNet, InNetClass, or In AnyNet.
All design rules are created and managed within the PCB Rules and Constraints Editor dialog. For a high-level view of working with the design rules system, see Constraining the Design - Design Rules. For detailed information regarding how to target the objects that you want a design rule to apply to, see Scoping Design Rules.

How Duplicate Rule Contentions are Resolved

All rules are resolved by the priority setting. The system goes through the rules from highest to lowest priority and picks the first one whose scope expression matches the object(s) being checked.

Rule Application

Online DRC and Batch DRC.
