Mentor Graphics Closing the Gaps Between PCB Layout Design and Manufacturing

This paper describes how layout designers and product-level NPI engineers can prepare and validate product models using embedded or concurrent design-for-manufacturing (DFM) analysis while they are working with the leading PCB layout design tools. What you will learn: • The distinction between design rules and manufacturing process rules • Best –practice integration and application of manufacturing rules at the design level • Comprehensive product-modeling at the NPI level, for maximum intelligence and minimum complexity of hand-off to manufacturing process preparation
