: Design Rule Checker
DRC (Design Rule Checkers) are software tools which verify that the layout topology of circuits which have undergone placement, routing, and compaction does not violate any rules associated with the target process technology. Includes electrical rule checkers (ERC), which verify that no electrical rule violations have occurred, and layout-versus-schematic checkers (LVS), which verify that the physical implementation of the design matches the logical implementation.
