# Pin with no driver - Kicad

I'm new to Kicad and I'm having some problems using Eeschema. Every time I connect a power source to an IC pin, in this case the L293D, I get the following error:

ErrType(3):Pin connected to some other pins but no pin to drive it


I'm just connecting the IC's pin to a +9V power source icon. I'm using an external library that includes this H-Bridge. I can't see what I am missing.

You need Power Flag.

Every time you add a symbol from power library you need to add a power flag.

From documentation:

It is common to have an error or a warning on power pins, even though all seems normal. This happens because, in most designs, the power is provided by connectors that are not power sources (like regulator output, which is declared as Power out).

• do you have a connector [...] - yes I do. What's the proper way to treat this case ? Feb 23, 2017 at 11:35
