PCB Design for Manufacturing & Assembly
Before defining DFM and DFA and how to best utilize them, we explain the manufacturing process and the importance of optimizing this stage of PCBA development.
PCB DFM and Assembly Guidelines and Principles Explained
Following good DFM guidelines and principles based on your CM’s equipment and processes is essential for efficient PCBA development.

RIT PCB Design Program - Visit Your Fab Day
RIT's PCB Design Program teaches electrical engineering students to design and build printed circuit boards according to DFM standards, visit your fab day helped underscore the importance of this.
3 Key Principles You Need to Know to Become Confident at PCB Design
DFM: Integrated Manufacturing Constraints
Manufacturing rules are managed as constraints in the familiar constraints manager, coexisting independently with electrical rules which can have more or less constrictive constraints.
Top DFM Issues to Check and Avoid During PCB Layout
Knowing and avoiding the top DFM issues is a requirement for efficient PCBA design and development.
Easily ensure test points are accessible in your designs.
How does your stack-up, stackup?
In this webinar, you'll learn:
Why your stackup is critical to overall design success
Key elements that comprise PCB board stack-ups (power planes, balance, flex / rigid-flex, etc)
Real-Time Design for Manufacturability (DFM)
Post-design DFM checks are too late. Even if you’re able to find a mistake, you’re going to lose hours, days, even weeks adjusting your design. OrCAD gives you the full DFM, Design for Fabrication...
