DFM: Evolving methodology in the PCB industry: by Nolan Johnson, Sunstone Circuits – August 1, 2008

Posted by: jillw in:

Current design complexities, shorter design cycles and increased levels of outsourcing have forced a shift in DFM methodology.

While “Design for Manufacture” (DFM) tools have been an ongoing innovation in the electronic design automation and computer-aided design sectors of the electronics industry, they have surprisingly not enjoyed such prevalence with their close relative, printed circuit board design. DFM technology has only recently become a critical component in a PCB’s design to manufacturing process. Previously, designers were forced to make underinformed decisions resulting in significant rework and missed market opportunities. New DFM methodology helps designers incorporate manufacturing knowledge during the initial design process, preventing, or minimizing, yield issues while saving time and money.
