Mentor On-Demand Webinar: Perfecting Your PCB with DFM Analysis


Reading time ( words)

Historically, design-for-manufacturability (DFM) checks have taken place during the fabrication process and have typically been performed by PCB manufacturing engineers or fab houses utilizing DFM-specific analysis software. The typical PCB designer would only run their own built-in pre-fabrication DRC and integrity checks prior to sending out for manufacturing and wait to hear from the fabricator if issues were encountered.

Today, DFM analysis allows designers to identify and correct potential fabrication and assembly issues in the design database before they hit the production floor. Without DFM, you leave changes in the manufacturer’s hands, where the focus is on increasing yield, not on the electrical performance of the final product.

In this on-demand webinar, presenters Shivani Joshi and John McMillan with Mentor, a Siemens business, will explain how PADS Professional can empower you to eliminate costly manufacturing delays by minimizing supplier call-backs and design re-spins.

What Attendees Will Learn

  • Common DFM issues that cause delays in fabrication 
  • Common DFA issues that cause delays in assembly 
  • Panelization using PADS Professional's FabLink 
  • Producing an output file: ODB++ vs. Gerber
  • Proper data to include in design for fabrication and assembly

Who Should Attend

  • Engineering managers
  • Electrical and hardware engineers

Chris Hanson: New Ventec IMS Dielectrics Rated for Higher Temps

07/07/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Andy Shaughnessy recently spoke with Chris Hanson, global head of IMS Technology for Ventec International Group. During their conversation, Chris discusses his group’s recent efforts to create new IMS materials, with a focus on dielectrics. As Chris explains, Ventec has developed several new dielectrics that can withstand much higher operating temperatures, one of which is UL-rated for a maximum operating temp of 155°C, which may be the highest for an IMS dielectric.
