This webinar on design documentation addresses the issues that we often see when designers submit their files for manufacturing.

Designing a functional PCB and producing a functional PCB are two completely different tasks. Even if your board is designed correctly, you still must ensure your design is communicated correctly for manufacturing or it can lead to additional time and money spent reproducing the board as well as wasted materials. This webinar covers what is needed to ensure an efficient handoff to manufacturing as well as techniques to help you automate and prevent errors in the process. Follow the guidelines by the design and manufacturing experts at Sierra Circuits and EMA to learn how to prevent costly mistakes during the fabrication process.


What you will learn:


  1. The design documentation that a fabricator needs
  2. Common areas of miscommunication between designers and fabricators
  3. How to handle special manufacturing requirements
  4. How to automate your design documentation and manufacturing process with Cadence


Level: Beginner
