The rules of PCB design have changed little over the years, but the demands on the boards themselves keep increasing. The need for smaller, more complex boards used in smartphones, tablets, and other handheld devices translates into less real estate for greater functionality.
Design for Manufacturability (DFM) now plays a more important role in the production process. The continued miniaturization of products means that many designs push the physical limits of PCB manufacturability. This makes poor performance or even failure more likely.
Good DFM techniques are more important than ever. This paper explores a number of straightforward ways you can increase the manufacturability of your boards.
