Design Check Online Design Review Services
Microchip’s Design Check Online Review is an exclusive and personalized value-added service that is available at no charge to customers who have selected our car access, EqcoLogic, Ethernet, MOST®, INICnet™ technology, USB, capacitive sensing, microprocessor (MPU), wireless and power management devices for their applications. Design Check supports your design flow by providing guidance through the complete cycle, from initial schematic capture to PCB layout. You can submit your design schematic, PCB layout and PCB routing information to a confidential and secure environment, where they are analyzed by Microchip engineers who will then provide you with personalized feedback.
We Offer These Specific Design Check Services:
If your design uses any of our car access products, our application engineers will review your schematic, PCB layout, control software and device configuration to optimize your design.
When you use any of our Ethernet devices in your design, a Microchip engineer will review your component selection, schematic and PCB design and layout to look for common mistakes. We will provide a detailed report with guidance based on this review.
When you use any of our USB hubs, PHYs, card reader bridges, and USB Type-C®/Power Delivery controllers (see the full list of these products on the USB Products page) in your design, our engineers will review and provide guidance on those components within your schematic and PCB layout.
Via our interactive review process, our application engineering team will provide guidance on the schematic, component selection and PCB layout of your design that uses our Power over Ethernet PSE and PD devices.

Do You Need To Save Development Time?
While our regular Design Check service is free, it can take up to 12–15 days for you to receive the first feedback on your design. Available for just $100 per case, our FAST TRACK Design Check ensures that your case will be assigned more quickly to a dedicated Design Check engineer, who will typically provide you with feedback within 3–5 working days. This service is currently only available for our LANCheck review service and only for customers located in the Americas.
