This is my first attempt to design a 2 layer board.I got DRC error regarding to the pad size. I am attaching screenshot of my design,and DRC errors. enter image description here enter image description here

Desin rull setupis: distance between trace is 0.25 distance between pad is 0.25

can anybody help me??


  • \$\begingroup\$ You have the minimum spacing set to 0.4mm, but you are using an SMD part with pins that are spaced at 0.25mm. You need to change the rules. \$\endgroup\$ – JRE Mar 1 '17 at 7:21

You will need to change the design rules to allow closer traces and pads to be able to use that component, 0.4 is a rather large spacing for SMD components is there a reason why it is so large?

What program are you using? If it is Eagle I might be able to check my one to show you how.

If you can get that IC in a larger package I would recommend that though, fine SMD is quite finicky.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Ah good, I usually prefer the larger packages anyway if they fit and are available. Also if this did answer your question then it is proper practice to mark it as answered for archival purposes. \$\endgroup\$ – TWiz Mar 2 '17 at 4:06
