July 9, 2021
This FAQ covers the importance of using the right DRC tools, as well as what engineers/designers look for in DRC capabilities.

An integrated circuit (IC) foundry cannot manufacture the IC without the proper design layout specifications. Design rules must be checked prior to manufacturing. In this FAQ, we’ll cover how Design Rule Checking (DRC) for ICs works and why DRC tools are not all the same. Readers will find all the necessary facts to make a solid decision concerning which DRC tools to implement.
