Rule category: SMT
Rule classification: Unary
This rule specifies the minimum distance from the edge of a surface mount pad to the first routing corner.
All rules are resolved by the priority setting. The system goes through the rules from highest to lowest priority and picks the first one whose scope expression matches the object(s) being checked.
Online DRC and Batch DRC, as well as the interactive router. The interactive router will obey this rule by maintaining a straight pad exit trace emanating from the pad center on any allowed "entry angle" (see SMD Entry rule), at least to the distance specified.
