Identifying DFM Issues Before Fabrication

Preparing PCB design data for manufacturing is a critical step in the new product introduction process. Designs that work in a virtual PCB CAD system may unknowingly break critical manufacturing rules resulting in delayed delivery times as deviations and workarounds are performed at the manufacturer.

Mentor Graphics Corporation today announced its new Xpedition® Package Integrator flow, the industry's broadest solution for integrated circuit (IC), package, and printed circuit board (PCB) co-design and optimization. The Package Integrator solution automates planning, assembly and optimization of today's complex multi-die packages. It incorporates a unique virtual die model concept for true IC-to-package co-optimization. In support of early marketing-level studies for a proposed new device, users can now plan, assemble and optimize complex systems with minimal source data. The new Package Integrator flow allows design teams to realize faster and more efficient physical path finding and seamless tool integration for rapid prototyping, right to the production flow.

Mentor Graphics Corporation has announced its newest version of the HyperLynx® Signal Integrity/Power Integrity (SI/PI) product for high-speed printed circuit board (PCB) designs. The HyperLynx product addresses high-speed systems design problems throughout the design flow—starting at the earliest architectural stages through post-layout verification. With the increased complexity and high-speed performance of today's integrated circuits (ICs), a growing number of PCBs suffer from signal degradation and timing problems which are exacerbated by power delivery issues; this impacts board performance and possibly total failed logic, requiring costly redesign. 

The comprehensive HyperLynx SI/PI product provides tools for pre- and post-layout signal integrity, timing, crosstalk and...

DownStream will hold a BluePrint-PCB webinar on Tuesday, March 10, with a theme of “Automate. Enhance. Ease PCB Documentation."

BluePrint-PCB has a unique sleek user interface that allows you to quickly and easily create, distribute, and use PCB Documentation. Once designers see it and use it, they will be convinced of its power and versatility. Here is an opportunity to see BluePrint-PCB solution in action.

DownStream's PCB document authoring tool, BluePrint-PCB, easily creates electronic drawings to drive the PCB fabrication and assembly. BluePrint uses the PCB CAD data to automatically and intelligently represent every aspect of your PCB design. It even allows you to add specific comments and instructions, external files, URLs, and more. This electronic document...
