Design Rule Checking (DRC)

CR-8000 Circuit Adviser

Design Gateway’s Circuit Adviser enables engineers to conduct concurrent, advanced electrical rule checks during logical circuit creation. Users can specify rules and conditions, create check results, cross-probe results with the design and generate summary reports.


Checks include:

Power and ground supply polarity
Net voltage polarity
Input pin voltage
“Must connect” pins
Pull-up/pull-down resistors
Component voltage ratings
Component power dissipation ratings
Maximum Repetitive Reverse Voltage check (VRRM)
Component pin input/output current balancing
Worst-case analysis for voltage/power ratings
Diode forward voltage/power ratings
Component pin capacitance

Circuit Adviser rule checks can be further enhanced, utilizing the annotation of operating point voltages annotated to the circuit design from the analog simulation.
