Mentor introduces unique Valor NPI automated technology solution to ease PCB design for manufacturing

Mentor, a Siemens business, announced the unique Valor® NPI [New Product Introduction] design-for-manufacturing (DFM) technology that automates printed circuit board (PCB) design reviews based on the PCB technology and manufacturing processes employed. With the increasing complexity of PCB technology and the more varied manufacturing processes required for today’s electronics, there is a greater burden put on manufacturers to create useful DFM rules. Unlike traditional DFM methods that limited DFM technology use to subject matter experts, with the new Valor NPI designers can benefit from DFM without having to be an expert.
