Mentor On-Demand Webinar: Perfecting Your PCB with DFM Analysis


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 pre-fabrication DRC and integrity checks prior to sending out for manufacturing and wait to hear from the fabricator if issues were encountered.

Today, DFM analysis allows designers 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 on-demand webinar, presenters Shivani Joshi and John McMillan with Mentor, a Siemens business, will explain how PADS Professional can empower you to eliminate costly manufacturing delays by minimizing supplier call-backs and design re-spins.

What Attendees 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

IPC Designers Council Has a New Name: IPC Design

02/11/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Yes, you read that right. The IPC Designers Council is now known as IPC Design. Many of you have heard secondhand stories about what this change will entail, so I asked IPC to shed some light on this subject. I recently spoke with IPC’s Teresa Rowe and Patrick Crawford about what’s changing, what’s not, and IPC’s plans to provide improved infrastructure for PCB design content and curriculum.
