Managing DFM Validation for PCB Assembly and Test Processes
On-demand Web Seminar
Design for Assembly and Test is an essential stage in the NPI process. Using Valor NPI to perform DFM analysis during the design flow eliminates costly and time consuming problems experienced during PCB assembly and test. Using DFM rules based on the manufacturer capabilities and process constraints forms part of the Lean NPI process model. During this web seminar, the following will be discussed:
- Effective DFM analysis in the NPI flow, with a specific focus on assembly and test.
- Left-shift of DFM in the design process.
- Examples and impact of assembly and test DFM on revision spins, first-pass yield and fast volume ramp-up.
What You Will Learn
- Best practice implementation of DFM for assembly and test
- Executing DFM to achieve Lean NPI
