Register Now for Mentor's DFM Analysis Webinar on Oct. 16


Reading time ( words)

Historically, design-for-manufacturability (DFM) checks have taken place during the fabrication process and have typically been performed by PCB manufacturing engineers or fab houses utilizing DFM-specific analysis software. The typical PCB designer would only run their own built-in prefabrication DRC and integrity checks prior to sending out for manufacturing and wait to hear back from the fabricator if issues were encountered.

Today, DFM analysis allows you to identify and correct potential fabrication and assembly issues in the design database before they hit the production floor. Without DFM, you leave changes in the manufacturer’s hands, where the focus is on increasing yield, not on the electrical performance of the final product.

In this webinar by Mentor, a Siemens business, attendees will learn how PADS Professional can empower you to eliminate costly manufacturing delays by minimizing supplier call-backs and design re-spins.

What You Will Learn

  • Common DFM issues that cause delays in fabrication 
  • Common DFA issues that cause delays in assembly 
  • Panelization using PADS Professional's FabLink 
  • Producing an output file: ODB++ vs. Gerber
  • Proper data to include in design for fabrication and assembly

Who Should Attend

  • Engineering managers
  • Electrical and hardware engineers
  • PCB designers

Additive Manufacturing Requires Additive Design Techniques

05/09/2022 | Luca Gautero, SUSS MicroTec
Although I am not a designer by trade, I want to share my thoughts on what additive manufacturing means for designers, especially how it relates to solder mask. In this article, you will learn what topics I feel are the most important to address.

AltiumLive 2022: MacroFab Unites Design and Manufacturing in One Domain

03/31/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I recently spoke with Joey Rodriguez, director of product management for MacroFab, which just announced a major partnership with Altium that brings supply chain information to Altium users much earlier in the design cycle. Joey and I discussed his AltiumLive presentation, now available online, which provides details about MacroFab’s efforts to “left-shift” supply chain information, and the need for designers to think holistically about the supply chain as early as possible in the design cycle.
