This is my first time designing a PCB, and because it is part of a project at uni I have the intention of manufacturing it afterwards. The circuit itself is a voltage-controlled oscillator designed by Ray Wilson MFOS:
The website is full of great info and resources, including the PCB layout that he himself used. To speed the process of my design up I have mimicked his assembly layout using the PCB design tool that comes with TINA, but through differences of software, there are differences in the final results.
This may be a silly question, but my concern comes from the the grounding issues that may (or may not) arise. On Ray's PCB there is a ground pin which I imagine is the bridge between the power supply and ground plane?:
And on my PCB i've used two pin headers, so there is effectively two ground pins, and am hesitant in how to connect ground properly from my power supply to the PCB using this particular set up:
The PCB started as two layer and I've added a ground and power plane, but how do I ensure that ground is connected properly at the VS1 and VS2 power supply headers after manufacture? Would I short the two ground pins and proceed to hook up the power supply, or use banana jacks to to hook both ground pins up accordingly? I apologize for this rookie question, and if any more info is needed let me know! Here's an un-routed 3D view of my PCB design (ground pins of power supply headers circled in blue):
