During DesignCon, I met with Cristian Filip, a senior product architect with Mentor, a Siemens business. Cristian had just received word that his paper had won a DesignCon Best Paper award—his second such award in three years. I asked Cristian to discuss his paper and how this technology can help improve manufacturing yields at high volumes.
This column will address eliminating confusion that creates remakes both from the end-user/designer and the fabrication house. Let’s say you’ve asked for a material type on your drawing that is not either readily available or used by your fabricator. Here, you should expect the fabrication house to respond quickly and have all the deviations at once for you to review. This includes any impedance width changes, material types, or copper weights to produce the part. Any deviations regarding drawing notes such as wrap plate requirements that cannot be incorporated due to insufficient space or the extra etch compensation to meet the wrap plate requirement should also be addressed.
