Top Tips for New Designers
A Printed Circuit Board (PCB) will probably go through various iterations throughout its design, being tweaked until the perfect functionality is achieved. Although some designers might leave Design for Manufacture (DFM) considerations until the very end, here at SAS we strongly encourage you to incorporate Design for Manufacture from the first design, as this will help you to build your circuit and PCB Assembly (PCBA) right the first pre-production run and provide the easiest PCB Manufacturing experience. You wouldn’t build a house without a solid foundation, right? The same goes for your PCB.
However, especially for new electronic designers, Design for Manufacture can be a bit daunting. This is why our very knowledgeable team of engineers have put together a list of top tips for designers producing electronic circuit boards. Click on each card to get more information.
