DownStream Webinar: The Benefits of Design for Manufacture


Reading time ( words)

All designers want stress-free, error-free, headache-free transition of design data to manufacturing. Discovering issues during manufacturing leads to production delays and additional expenses. Avoiding these costs can be fairly easy; simply analyze your designs before committing them to fabrication.

Relying on the design rule checking function of your PCB CAD system is a good start to finding manufacturing issues, but it's simply not enough. The DRC of most CAD systems is inadequate for analyzing a design against the many nuances of the fabrication process. They perform analysis to ensure the design will perform properly, but they overlook the critical need to analyze for manufacturing errors and issues.

On Tuesday, April 17, DownStream Technologies will be holding a webinar that can answer many PCB designers’ DFM questions. This DFMStream/CAM350 webinar will provide information that can help designers identify DFM issues before fabrication.

When:

  • 9 am EDT/6 am PDT/2 pm GMT/3 pm CEST
  • 2 pm EDT/11 am PDT

ODB++: Transforming Ideas Into Products

10/09/2019 | Max Clark, Mentor, a Siemens Business
The ODB format originated with the objective of delivering on this need. The format was originally introduced for use by PCB fabricators, eliminating the need for a collection of CAM files in multiple formats—such as Gerber, Excellon, IPC-356, or even IPC-350, which was an early attempt to simplify this process. The key to the success of ODB was that it obtained industry acceptance.
