Most RF/mixed-signal PCB design and system integration requires a workflow that not only supports interoperability between the design tool responsible for RF/microwave IP creation and the manufacturing/signoff platform, but also properly manages SMD library parts, padstacks, and technology files in order to avoid time-consuming, error prone, manual translation flows. This presentation will examine the requirements for a more robust RF-to-PCB layout workflow, focusing on design-for-manufacturing requirements typically managed within the layout tool itself. RF engineers will learn more about PCB layout and manufacturing CAD concerns that improve and accelerate handoff from RF design to PCB layout.
