DFM Validation & NPI
New product introduction (NPI) platform for PCB design-to-manufacturing handoff
Valor NPI ensures a smooth transition from PCB design to fabrication, and on to assembly. The Valor NPI platform provides comprehensive DFM analysis, applied in parallel with your design flow for maximum advantage, or on design completion. By combining the Valor NPI manufacturing optimization tools and DFM, the design can be fully prepared for handoff to production.
For PCB designers, Valor NPI provides concurrent DFM analysis during the design process, applying almost 700 manufacturing rules to the design ensuring minimum revision spins in manufacturing. The DFM analysis flow can be set up to automatically analyze each new version and pinpoint all potential manufacturing problems directly in the CAD system.
For manufacturing NPI and process engineers, Valor NPI provides comprehensive analysis to prove new products match the fabrication processes. BOM, AVL and component analysis ensures the design complies with assembly and test processes. Rapid feedback to the PCB designer allows DFM corrections or improvements to be implemented before manufacture.
