Default DRC tutorial for OrCAD Layout 9.2


Iíve finished a layout in OrCAD 9.2 Layout Plus, and I want to run DRC on it. Itís a simple board with only 45 nets, but Iím getting few hundred DRC errors. I guess, Iím getting these errors, because I havenít set up the rules and parameters correctly.

Would somebody be so kind and give a link to (or upload) a tutorial for OrCAD Layout DRC ?

Some of my particular question about DRC:
- Can I get a text report with warnings and errors?
- How can I change the DRC parameters such as trace and gap widths?
- How can I change severity levels Ė whether a certain type of discrepancy generates an error or a warning?

Iíve checked the tutorial in the Help menu, but thereís very little information about DRC.

Read the label, before opening a can of worms.

Something's wrong with your setup . Usually , you can go to Layout help on help menu ( or hit F1 ) .

I would check the loading files first . Template , strategy ... . Try to load it with default .

Read the errors and try to figure out from which part of layout that causes it happen . Good luck .

ps : my trick is sometime I go back to the board that I designed before ( without errors ) and compare it with the new one .
