DFM Verification for PCB Assembly
On-demand Web Seminar
The assembly of a printed circuit board is typically the most expensive part of the manufacturing process. Not only are the components associated with the PCB expensive, but any errors not found until PCB assembly can mean the scrapping of the PCB itself if layout changes are required.
The assembly of a printed circuit board is typically the most expensive part of the manufacturing process. Not only are the components associated with the PCB expensive, but any errors not found until PCB assembly can mean the scrapping of the PCB itself if layout changes are required. Mentor Graphic's vSure DFM verification solution identifies manufacturability issues concurrent with your design process, effectively performing a virtual prototype of your design. This greatly reduces the number of revision spins it takes to reach your volume and quality objectives. This session will include an EMS company's perspective and a product demonstration.
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
