Connecting Wires to the Ground
A wire will automatically connect to the ground plane when the z coordinate of one of its ends coincides with the position of the ground plane.
- When a PEC ground plane > is chosen, the ground position is specified by the value of Z in the Environment panel > Ground Plane box.
- When a real ground > is chosen, the ground position is Z = 0 (xy-plane).
- When a substrate > is chosen, a PEC ground plane is placed at Z = -h (h: substrate thickness).
Wire connections to the ground plane are shown with 3D symbols, Fig. 1.
All wires must be above the ground plane. Wires that cross the ground plane from one side to the other are not allowed.
