Tim’s Takeaways: PCB Design and Manufacturing—Let’s Work Together

02/08/2024 | Tim Haag -- Column: Tim's Takeaways
I have spoken with many different companies, and have found that adherence to manufacturing requirements in PCB layout varies quite a bit. On one side are those design groups that don’t exercise a lot of caution when it comes to manufacturing requirements. These are often designs produced in lower numbers, and error-free yields aren’t their primary concern. The boards are manufactured knowing they will require a lot of manual cleanup to get working units finished.

Save Your Design by Understanding Fab Processes

01/16/2024 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
At PCB Carolina, I met with Laura Martin, director of applications engineering for Summit Interconnect. Laura has been at Summit for about a year, moving into the role from a similar position at Insulectro. She has now become Summit’s go-to design for manufacturing (DFM) expert, and she’s working to move DFM further up in the design cycle, eliminating unpleasant surprises at CAM.

Connect the Dots: Best Practices for Ensuring PCB Design Manufacturability

12/07/2023 | Matt Stevenson -- Column: Connect the Dots
It makes sense to optimize your board using design for manufacturability (DFM) techniques. But applying DFM best practices can be confusing without formal training. The results are designs that are often incomplete, poorly designed, or too complex. When these issues arise, your PCB manufacturing partner rejecting the design can be considered a best-case scenario because it means they have your back. If your design is simply dropped into an automated queue without concern for manufacturability, the output can be a batch of unusable boards.

PCBflow Fosters Collaboration Between Design and Manufacture 

10/23/2023 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During PCB West, I spoke with Susan Kayesar, program manager for PCBflow, a business unit of Siemens that provides a collaboration environment for designers and manufacturers. We discussed the intent behind PCBFlow and how this platform helps to improve pre-manufacture communications.
