Concurrent DFM Verification for Fabrication



Improving integration with your fabrication partner can significantly improve a company’s ability to deliver products to market faster, at lower cost and of higher quality.

Mentor’s Valor NPI DFM verification solution does more than catch manufacturability issues. It enables you to communicate better design data with your supplier so that they can better serve you.

Using Valor NPI also allows your supplier to share their process awareness with you, enabling your designers to improve their fabrication knowledge with every exchange.

A fabricator’s perspective and a product demonstration will be included in this session.

What You Will Learn

  • Common fabrication issues that result in frequent board re-spins
  • Checks you can use to optimize yield and minimize board cost
  • How to adopt a repeatable DFM validation process, concurrent with your layout design
