Design for Manufacturing (DFM) is a set of automated checks of your PCB design to validate your PCB design against your fabricator’s and assembler’s capabilities. Valor NPI incorporates detailed, in-depth manufacturing knowledge and makes that knowledge usable throughout the design process to avoid costly delays in new product introductions.
Using Valor NPI, concurrent DFM checks can be executed from the first day of parts placement and layout all the way to release-to-manufacturing. With Valor NPI, you can optimize your design for manufacturing during the initial design release. Cadence Allegro users can run concurrent DFM with Valor NPI and review violations directly within the familiar Allegro user environment.
