How much do you want to spend on your design?

Do you rely on the fabricator and assembler to know what you want for your finished PCB?  If so, there is something you should know:  They know THEIR job, they don’t know YOUR design.

The first priority of most fabrication and assembly companies is to keep their costs down.  It should be the priority of the PCB Design Team as well. To do that, it’s important to know what areas increase fab and assembly costs and what are the options available to mitigate these costs. And not create an undesired degradation of the electrical circuit.

Good DFX checking is the key! When you design for Fab, Assembly, and Test, two things become important:

  1. Team Planning
  2. Communication Methodology

This Technical Session will cover the Tips & Tricks of good DFX no matter what software tools you have.
