Deliver more NPI value to your customers with ODB++
On-demand Web Seminar
PCB fabrication and assembly organizations work to satisfy both their customer demands and improve the manufacturability of their products. The New Product Introduction (NPI) phase is a critical stage in the process where design organizations transfer their new product board designs to the PCB fabricators, and these needs are addressed. If outdated or manual methods are used, time delays and costs can increase while quality is diminished.
Join us as we discuss how Mentor Graphics’ ODB++ format integrates PCB design and manufacturing more effectively than conventional PCB design transferring methods, and the anticipated business-level performance improvements that can be expected, both for the manufacturer and the design-organization.
What You Will Learn
- How ODB++ can reduce cost and time delays at entry to manufacturing
- How ODB++ has been implemented into the global PCB manufacturing market
- How ODB++ is available to the whole industry, not just Mentor customers
- How Mentor Graphics can help you implement ODB++ across the manufacturing supply chain
