DRC (Design Rule Checker) Revisited Part 1






In 2013, we launched our monthly webinar series focusing on the Design Rule Checker in Altium Designer. This was well received and is one of our most-watched videos. But, we also know since then, Altium has added several features to enhance the DRC capabilities, both in terms of rule creation and the ability to determine a flagged issue quickly.

In Part 1, we will cover the following to demonstrate the capabilities within Altium Designer 19:

  • Purpose of design rules
  • Design rule dialogue box
  • Preferences related to the design rules
  • Pattern and detail overlays
  • Design rule waiving
  • PCB rules and violations panel
  • Violation Details dialogue box
  • Batch/Online DRC options

In Part 2, we will cover:

  • Classes
  • Priorities
  • Query creation using various methods
  • Regional rules
  • Special Cases

Join us to review what you know and learn something that you may have overlooked.
