Mismatched Widths

This checks for any models that are connected that have widths parameters that do not match. We prefer users to use intelligent models (where a model can get its width from the model it is connected to), however many customers do not and can have data entry errors where widths of connecting models should match but do not. For example, when using equations, it is possible to type the wrong equation values as shown below.

This check will report any elements that were found in this condition.

Shorted Circuit Elements

This checks for any models that are enabled but have all of their nodes shorted together. This condition is typically a case where a designer intended to disable an element and did not.

Open Circuit Elements

This checks for any models that are enabled and have nodes that are not connected to anything. This condition is typically a case where a designer overlapped nodes to connect them and miss placed a part. The picture below shows this case where the nodes of both resistors are not overlapped. In a big schematic this error would be difficult to spot.

Overlapping Circuit Elements

This checks for any models that are exactly on top of one another. The picture below shows this case where the left resistor looks like there is one resistor, but actually there are two that are exactly overlapping.
