INTERCONNECT elements connection routing type options



From the release 2016a, INTERCONNECT provides the new feature for user to choose the “Connection Routing Type” (File -> Options -> Connection Routing Type).

The “Manhattan” option makes connections in horizontal and vertical lines and the “Direct” option makes connections directly connect two ports (which is saying that connections can be diagnose lines). The connection option can be changed by right clicking on the connection line and selecting from the list.


Hey Guanhui, I have one question: if i choose Manhattan type, am i able to change the detailed routing myself? Or it is automatic and unchangeable?


Hi @wang2430,

You can change the detailed routing by inserting pins; you can do so by right clicking on the route and selecting ‘insert pin’.

Then you can change the routing by dragging the pins and you can insert more than one pins to one route.
