PCB design best practices: Design and manufacturing collaboration

When designers work in isolation, they increase the chances of the designs being sent back for non-compliance. They should try their best to read through the IPC standards before they start designing their boards. This will ensure that they consider compliance from the start of the design process to the end.

I’m your host, Steph Chavez, a Senior Product Marketing Manager with Siemens. I’m glad to be joined by Gerry Partida, Vice President of Technology at Summit Interconnect. Out of his 38 years in the industry, he spent the last 27 fabricating PCBs.

In this episode, you’ll learn about the difficulties in collaboration between PCB designers and manufacturers. You’ll hear about the best practices that designers should follow to reduce the risk of their design being rejected. Additionally, you’ll find out some of the rules that designers should follow to increase their board yield.

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • What doesn’t work today in PCB design and manufacturing collaboration (01:53)
  • Best practices that PCB designers should implement (07:36)
  • An example of how following rules can save eliminate manufacturing delays (11:51)
  • What design teams can do to improve efficiency (18:10)
