Mentor Paper: Perfecting Your PCB with DFM Analysis


Reading time ( words)

We’ve all been there: you create a great design that should be solid and send it off to be manufactured. Then the fabricator calls you with a list of violations. You’re stuck, no closer to a finished PCB than before, and worse yet, you are now weeks late.

Learn how to achieve first-pass design success with this DFM analysis white paper by Mentor, a Siemens business. Click here to access this paper.

This Month in Design007 Magazine: What Did You Expect From Me, Anyway?

05/14/2020 | Todd Westerhoff, Mentor, a Siemens business
As engineers, we work in the middle of a (usually long) process chain. It’s sort of like working on an intellectual assembly line—we get requirements and data as input, perform our particular task, and then provide our output as requirements and data to the next person on down the line. It seems easy enough. So, why is it that so many of the requirements we’re supposed to meet and so much of the data we receive is downright bad?

Todd Westerhoff on the Value of Solid Design Skills

01/21/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Andy Shaughnessy recently caught up with Todd Westerhoff, product marketing manager for Mentor’s HyperLynx signal integrity (SI) tools. Todd discusses some of the challenges that he and his customers are facing and why good design skills have more influence on a PCB than any software tool.

Design Rule Checks Cut Down Board Respins

09/24/2019 | Rebecca Lord and John McMillan, Mentor, a Siemens business
PCB designs commonly undergo multiple respins as a result of inconspicuous signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI), and electromagnetic interference (EMI) violations. At an average cost of nearly $28,000 per respin, ensuring that a given design meets its performance, time to market, and cost goals is imperative. To help eliminate complicated and difficult-to-diagnose layout violations, some PCB tool suites offer unique electrical design rule checks (DRC).
