DFM-Design for Manufacturing
Cheryl Tulkoff, DfR Solutions
Wednesday, August 3
10:00 am–11:00 am CT
Design for manufacturability (DFM) best practices ensure that manufacturing capability is taken into consideration during the design and layout of a product. By understanding the potential effects of — and how to avoid — overtaxing their manufacturer, engineers can be confident in the execution of their design. Attendees will come away with a greater comprehension of the potential manufacturability hazards to avoid during the design process, and an understanding of the benefits of DFM.

- Equipment process controls and reliability testing
- Matching pcb complexity to supplier capabilities
- Influences of PCB thickness, cut-outs, and depanelization techniques on reliability
