F6: The 10+ 21 Most Common Design Errors Caught by Fabrication (and How to Prevent Them)

1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Speaker: David Hoover, TTM Technologies and Ray Fugitt, DownStream Technologies

In preparation for this presentation, we talked to many of the largest PCB manufacturers in the US and abroad. We then developed a list of the most common errors found on incoming designs. We started with 10 and now, based on popular demand, we've expanded and keep updating that list! We look at each of the errors and discuss ways to find them before the designs are sent out for manufacturing. Methods we will look at include netlist comparison, design for manufacturing, and design rule analysis. We encourage attendee participation and ask folks to bring their challenges for discussion. After this seminar, the PCB designer will take back some knowledge to better assist them in using their existing tools in the market to produce better and more accurate designs.

Who should attend: PCB Designer, Fabricator Engineer/Operator
Course rating (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced): Beginner, Intermediate
