    PCB profitability with Design for Test (DFT)

    Design for test/testing/testability. Design for manufacture. Design for assembly. Design for…well, you get the picture. There are a lot of “design for’s” to keep in mind. But they all boil down to one concept: design for profitability.

    That’s especially important when considering PCB design for test (DFT). PCBs can be complex, and they’re expected to work without errors. Inspection and testing are essential to PCB manufacturing but can be time-consuming and costly.

    How can you accommodate inspection and testing requirements and keep a product profitable?

    PCB design: Design for manufacturability

    Prior planning prevents poor performance, they say. With PCBs, effective planning involves Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA). That means thinking past the “sky’s the limit” PCB-design phase to consider the realities of putting a product together.

    DFMA principles focus on creating an efficient manufacturing process that lowers production costs. Too often, there’s a disconnect between […]
