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 CarAccess, EqcoLogic, Ethernet, MOST®, INICnet™ technology, USB, capacitive sensing, microprocessor (MPU), 32-bit microcontroller (MCU), 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 provide you with personalized feedback.

We Offer These Specific Design Check Services:


CarAccessCheck Review

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.

EqcoCheck Review

Use this design review service for assistance with developing multi-Gigabit devices based on our EqcoLogic family of data and video transceiver solutions.

INICnetCheck Review

This review service is recommended if you are designing INICnet technology devices based on UNICENS, INICs and companion ICs.

LANCheck® Review

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.

MCU32Check Review

Application engineers from our 32-bit MCU team will review and provide guidance on the schematic, component selection and PCB layout for your designs that include our 32-bit PIC® and SAM MCUs.

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 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.
