PCB Design for Manufacturing (DFM)
Concurrent DFM integrated into the PCB Design flow of Xpedition for New Product Introduction (NPI)
This PCB Design for Manufacturing solution integrates the Valor NPI software into Xpedition to reduce the number of re-spins. It uses design for manufacturability (DFM) technology that enables manufacturing issues to be identified and corrected early in the process, saving money and time and improving the quality of the product.
When PCB Design for Manufacturing makes the difference
Why is it that printed circuit board (PCB) design re-spins are expected rather than the exception? According to historical data, schedules and budgets typically include several re-spins. Valor NPI software, integrated into Xpedition software, has proven it can be used to reduce the number of re-spins by an average of 57 percent using design for manufacturability (DFM) technology that enables manufacturing issues to be identified and corrected early in the process, saving money and time.
Valor NPI incorporates expert knowledge about the fabrication and assembly processes and makes that knowledge accessible to anyone in the new product design flow, shifting the manufacturing knowledge into design. As a result, leading electronic design companies have found that incorporating Valor NPI technology into their PCB design process saves expensive re-spins and improves the quality of the product. Valor NPI is part of the Xcelerator portfolio, the comprehensive and integrated portfolio of software and services from Siemens Digital Industries Software.
