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.

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.
