Orcad Capture - Design rule check gives "no matching pin" error for OFD16 component

Description

Keywords: Orcad, Capture, OFD16, pins, matching

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I use an OFD16 in an Orcad Capture design, I encounter the following warning
from the design rule checker:

[DRC0012] Pin has no matching port in schematic below U...
and
[DRC0013]: Port has no matching pin in part instance above...

Solution

This warning message may be due to a problem with the library symbol. Descend into
the OFD16 component and see if the output and input bus names have an index [15.0]
instead of [15..0] as they should. (This was a problem in the original Capture libraries.)
If so, change the bus index to [15..0].

Orcad has been notified of this error.

If you continue to experience difficulties, please contact Orcad technical support for an
updated library.
