Multiple reference designator assignment
« on: July 20, 2023, 09:07:17 pm »

Recently I've been seeing multiple reference designators assigned to a single location. Designer mentioned that 1 refdes per flavor of the board, which is unacceptable to me.

The designers are off-shores and I forgot what standard to educate them that it should only be 1 reference designator per location on the board. Can anyone chime in?

where are you seeing these reference designators?  In a placement file? In a PCB CAD file? In the silkscreen on a board?  Are these different designators for two parts of which only one is fitted at a time in the same footprint?
