Accurate Circuit Engineering Implements Online DFM Reporting ToolJune 28, 2016 | Accurate Circuit Engineering (ACE)
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Santa Ana based PCB fabricator, Accurate Circuit Engineering (ACE) has recently completed the installation of a free DFM reporting tool on their newly updated website. This tool allows users to identify errors before placing their PCB orders and helps avoid CAM holds and delays after the order has been placed.
The ACE-DFM reporting tool is a free service where users submit Gerber files to Accurate Circuit’s advanced DFM server for analysis. After a short processing time users will receive an in-depth PDF report via email that contains a detailed summary of the design and its manufacturability. Within this customized report, users will find helpful information including any flagged items that may result in a board that has potential flaws which may affect the performance of the design. This information is then categorized by violation type and color-coded for easy visual review.
Vice President of ACE Brandon Lowe comments, “We are excited about giving our customers the ability to easily review their files before the manufacturing process begins. The DFM reporting tool not only allows us to produce boards for our customers with as little delays as possible, it also ensures they receive the best performing board available.”
James Hofer, General Manager, comments, “In a quick turn prototype environment having up front DFM not only reduces lead times but also adds an extra level of confidence for the designer to understand where hidden issues may lie and how to work around them.”
