Mentor, a Siemens business, has announced the release of the final phase of the Valor software NPI design-for-manufacturing (DFM) technology that automates printed circuit board (PCB) design reviews where the PCB technology and manufacturing processes are employed. This latest release completes the realization of the Valor intelligent, manufacturing process-driven DFM solution, adding assembly DFM checks to the new process flow.

This new technology was developed in response to the customers’ need for an easier way to get accurate, meaningful DFM analysis without having every user be a DFM expert. To accomplish this, Mentor began a program three years ago to re-architect the Valor DFM solution to: make it easier to set up and maintain DFM rules so that the results are relevant,…

Mentor, a Siemens business will hold PCB Shift-Left Forum 2019 in Oulu, Finland on May 23, 2019 (9:00 - 15:00 Europe/Helsinki) and Herzliya, Israel on Jun 4, 2019 (9:00 - 15:00 Israel).

Overview

Establishing an effective PCB systems design validation process reduces design spins and increases product quality.

Increasing performance requirements coupled with a pressure to improve product quality are driving engineering teams to consider alternatives to their current validation approach. Best-practice design processes validate the digital twin (a model of your design) early and often to minimize re-spins and actually shorten the overall design cycle. This 'shift-left' approach enables design engineers and layout designers to validate…
