As the subject describes, I am having trouble connecting my +VDD and -Ground nets to the 9v battery on my current board.
I am new to eagle software and am using some Sparkfun libraries. Can anybody provide any insight?
I have fully designed the schematic with great success. When switching to board view, to begin tracing out the components - I wanted to start with the source: a 9v battery (thank you sparkfun for the cradle footprint). I have the 9v going to a 5v regulator. The input of the regulator I have connected to the net labeled "VDD" and the output is connected to the net labeled "VCC."
The issue is that in schematic view, the battery's + and - terminals clearly are connected to the VDD and Ground nets going to the 5v regulator inputs. When switching to the board view, the battery's terminals will not accept placing a trace to connect to the regulators footprint.
What am I doing wrong? The cradle has 2 pins providing a direct connection to the board from the battery. The footprint for these pins, or the two pads, will not accept a trace being placed to make the connection to the regulator.
Can anybody identify where my mistake lies?
