Tightly Linked DRC and PCB Layout Interfaces Because the layout and DRC tools are fully integrated, a PCB design can be loaded into DRC directly from the PCB layout window. The rules within DRC are sorted into specific cat- egories—SI, PI, EMI, and safety. And each in- dividual rule contains a descriptive overview page, making it easy for designers to select the most important tests to run on their PCB lay- out. The overview page for the nets crossing gaps rule within DRC is shown in Figure 2.
