PCB Layout CAD : DRC/MRC Settings


Routes can be connected by inserting a Jumper to the portion where the route patterns intersect on boards with few layers such as single-surface boards.
With Quadcept, by defining Jumpers, unnecessary errors will not occur during the DRC.

Frequently used Jumpers are preinstalled. To use unique Jumpers, create a Footprint and then register it.

For more details about opening the DRC/MRC Settings screen, refer to About DRC/MRC Settings.

Specified Jumpers can be placed while routing by right-click and selecting [Jumper].
For more details, refer to Jumper Routing.
