Are there a set of guidelines for optimizing panel design for tabs that will be removed with a board router ? In other words we need to know how to layout the tabs.

Thanks

As with most questions the answer is; it depends. Provided not too many boards are set onto a panel we use a .10" router gap around the PCB and .10" wide perforated tabs. We do request customers specify where they do not want tabs to ensure no breakouts occur in critical areas.It is most common for customers to leave the tab layout to the fabricator.
