Overview

PADS Design for Manufacturing

Integrated DFM analysis in PADS Professional allows you to identify and correct potential PCB fabrication and assembly issues in the design database before they hit the production floor, eliminating costly manufacturing delays while ensuring the electrical performance of the final product.

PADS Professional Design for Manufacturing Resources

Key Features

With integrated design for manufacturing analysis, PCB engineers can quickly and thoroughly identify PCB fabrication and assembly violations before transitioning to manufacturing, resulting in lowered costs and avoidance of delays.

Integrated DFM analysis

Integrated design for manufacturing analysis

PCB designers can review DFM results and fix issues immediately with seamless integration and synchronization, significantly reducing respins due to fabrication and assembly violations.

Accurate and validated data for PCB fabrication

PADS Professional Design for Manufacturing assures you that your design data is accurate when sent
out for fabrication and unexpected calls
from fabricators with issues will not delay
production.

Panel design and optimization

PADS Professional Design for Manufacturing allows you to create and optimize assembly panels, regardless of PCB shape, including adding fiducials, tooling holes, breakaway tabs, and v-score features to create a complete assembly panel model.
