Accessing the Design Rule Checker (DRC)

The DRC requires a valid license to our MEMS Design Tools. Before submitting a design to the Sandia Design Rule Checker the licensee or University Alliance Superuser will need to send an account request to:

Once you receive your DRC Username and Password, you may register as a Remote DRC Client. This will also require the DRC Access Key found on the inside cover of your Design Tool CD.

Follow the step by step instructions provided on the Design Tool CD or in your Advanced Design Short Course notes. If you can not find your notes please contact Stephanie Johnson memscc@sandia.gov

If you have any questions regarding the DRC, please contact the Design Review Team drt@drc.sandia.gov

Design Submission for Fabrication

In order to submit a design for fabrication, you must have a contract in place with Sandia National Laboratories. Please contact Stephanie Johnson at (505) 844-3757 or memsinfo@sandia.gov for details and costs. In addition, your design must successfully pass the DRC and comply with the requirements listed in the Design Pre-Submission Checklist.

Once these criteria have been met, your design can be submitted to Sandia by doing the following:

  1. Using a Web browser, navigate to
  2. Logon using the same username and password assigned to you for Design Rule Checking (DRC).
  3. Fill in the required design information, and press the Submit MEMS Design button

If you have any questions regarding the design submission process, please contact the Design Review Team drt@drc.sandia.gov
