Cadence 'Sigrity ERC' Electrical Rules Checker

Overview

Cadence 'Sigrity ERC' enables PCB designers to screen a PCB design for signal quality without having to assign any simulation models or to be a signal integrity expert. Going beyond simple geometry-based DRC, the entire PCB design can be evaluated for impedance discontinuities, excessive crosstalk, and return path discontinuities. Using OrCAD Sigrity ERC during PCB layout can reduce overall design time by not over-burdening the SI experts with signal quality issues that can be found and addressed by the PCB layout stage.

Using the ERC tool, PCB design engineers can locate signal quality issues, and make changes within the OrCAD PCB Editor canvas by cross-probing between the ERC and layout windows.


Electrical Rules Checking made easy

With ERC you can easily set up and run an ERC analysis of your design without having to provide any simulation models or be a signal integrity expert.

Plus you can identify signal issues that geometry-based DRCs miss, by conducting trace coupling checks, trace impedance checks, net coupling checks, and more.
