Hello All,

I am brand new to PCB design and I came across this forum while browsing. It’s very interesting to meet members here sharing information on PCB designing. I came across few articles on web regarding DFM(Design for Manufacturability) methodology which helps designers incorporate manufacturing knowledge during the initial design process, preventing design errors early in the design process and reducing the need for costly corrections later. Also one of my friends suggested me that we have free DFM software’s offered by few PCB manufacturers which is of great help to PCB designers. Ever heard of DFM methodology? Thanks much!

Sure. Our old friend Earl Moon wrote an e-book on DfX. Look here: http://www.dynamixtechnology.com/publications.htm

A couple a preliminary chapters to the book are in the SMTnet Library. Search on => moon

Hey Dave,

Thank you so much for the information. One of my friends suggested me that we have free DFM software’s offered by few PCB manufacturers which enables the designers to check their PCB design during the initial design process, preventing design errors early in the design process and reducing the need for costly corrections later. Is it true? Do we have PCB manufacturers who offer DFM check for free?

On the web, find a magazine called "PCB Fabrication & Design" or something like that [ http://www.pcdandf.com/cms/ ]

Usually, DfX rules are rolled into the board layout CAD
