Integrating Assembly Panel Design in the NPI Process



This webinar details Mentor Graphics’ best practice NPI process flow and the integration of the Assembly Panel Design tool within that flow. Included is a demonstration of the Valor NPI Assembly Panel Design software, showing its main features and ease of use.

Within the NPI process, one key stage is the design and verification of the PCB panel used for assembly. In order for the design of the panel to be brought into the design organization, and therefore reducing the time taken for design and approval, Mentor Graphics recommends using the Valor NPI Assembly Panel Design tool for this essential part of the NPI flow.
