Why to create a NetClass?
Net Classes are very useful during layout – by one click you can select whole interface (e.g. UART1, SD card, …. ) or a group of special signals (DATA BANK 0, 1, 2, …). You can also apply some rules on particular class (e.g. minimum track width, clearance, length, …)
Why to create a Differential Pair Class?
Differential Pair Classes are needed in case you are setting up rules for differential pairs. Differential pair rules will not work with standard NetClass.
