Reducing Design Cost & Time With Concurrent DFM Verification
On-demand Web Seminar
Find out how DFM verification concurrent with board layout will reduce the time between finding and fixing a manufacturability issue, minimize costly prototype re-spins, and result in products that perform their desired function.
The hand-off between design and manufacturing is rarely seamless. Inevitably, the manufacturer finds issues that will result in increased cost or lower yield. If you’re lucky, they’ll show you the problem areas and give you a chance to fix them – this is time-consuming and error-prone, but at least keeps you in control of your design. In other cases, the manufacturer will elect to make the ‘fixes’ themselves to save time, improving manufacturability to the detriment of product performance (e.g. with high-speed multi-gigabit interconnect). Instituting a process of DFM verification concurrent to the board layout will significantly reduce the time between finding and fixing a manufacturability issue, minimize costly prototype re-spins, and result in products that perform their desired function. Mentor Graphic’s DFM verification solution plugs directly into your existing design process, integrating with your CAD system and maintaining communications and rule sets from manufacturing to optimize your design before the first prototype.
What You Will Learn
- An improved methodology for manufacturability verification that can easily be integrated into your current flow
- The latest updates to the industry-leading solution for DFM validation
- How to reduce design cycles and improve product quality by concurrently verifying for manufacturability
