Dear Ahmadmn.
Thank you very much for your message.
I will look into this and come back to you as soon as possible.

Dear Ahmadmn

I can now confirm that the behaviour you recorded is caused by a typo in the default component database.
The issue will be fixed with the next PIExpert release.

In the meanwhile, you can either manually select another output capacitor or, alternatively, you can create your own custom database, where you can remove or edit the capacitance value of EKZE160ELL121MF11D , and re-run your design using the created Custom Component Set.

You can create your custom component Database by clicking on Component Library in PIExpert's main menu. Click on Component Set --> Create Set.
You can select which component to use into your custom set by editing the Use flag. Do not forget to click apply once the due modifications are completed.
You can set which database to use in your design by navigating to Design Setting --> Defaults --> Default component Set in the right vertical menu.

If you need any help in doing so, do not hesitate to reach out to me.

If you have any other question, please us know.
Best regards
