PCBflow now available from Nistec, Israel

By Ofer Lavi Ben-David

Nistec Design, one of Israel’s largest PCB design bureaus, has signed on as the world’s first distributor of PCBflow, Siemens’ new online software solution for design for manufacturing (DFM) testing and simulation. Nistec had partnered with Siemens on developing PCBflow, and so is already an expert in working with it. In addition to becoming a PCBflow distributor, Nistec has also purchased PCBflow licenses, enabling it to offer DFM as a service to other designers.

An innovative cloud-based software solution, PCBflow bridges the gap between the electronics design and manufacturing ecosystems, helping accelerate design-to-production handoff. It provides a secure environment for PCB design teams to interact with multiple manufacturers and rapidly performs a wide range of design-for-manufacturing (DFM) analyses specific to the process capabilities of a selected manufacturing facility as defined in PCBflow by the manufacturer. Testing typically takes just a few minutes, or even less. This can save significant time ahead of production as already in the design stage, the designer can determine the compatibility between the production facility’s process capabilities and the PCB design.

We’re excited to welcome Nistec to our network of Siemens distributors!
