How DFM/DFA Solution Could Facilitate Quick Turn PCB Assembly


For quick-turn PCB assembly, a ready-for-manufacturing PCB design is a critical.

Whether the design is verified by PCB designers or quick turn PCB assembly service providers, design for manufacturing/assembly (DFM/DFA) technology is essential to save time and cost.

For PCB designers, they may be required to get their design ready before looking for quick turn PCB assembly service. Designers need to find out the design omissions and predict the assembly blocks before tooling so as to fine-tune and improve their design to get their PCB assembled in short time.

For quick turn PCB assembly service providers (CEM), they may receive a rough design, which requires further verification of designs based on CEMs’ capability. In this case, CEMs need to review the design first, then communicate with the customer on design modification, which is a challenge for CEM as the communication may be back and forth for many times.

The cases above are common situations in quick turn PCB assembly industry.


How DFM/DFA solution could help you with quick turn PCB assembly

An intelligent DFM/DFA software could double the results with less efforts. For quick turn PCB assembly, Vayo Technology developed an innovative 3D DFM/DFA analysis solution, VayoPro-DFM Expert software.

If you are a PCB designer, VayoPro-DFM Expert could help you find out the design omissions and assembly difficulties in the first place. Besides the functionality of conventional DFM software, VayoPro-DFM Expert innovatively provides 3D component library, which allows the user to simulate the virtual PCBA. Through the thousands of checking rules (include 1200+ assembly checking rules and 300+ PCB design checking rules), the software could automatically run DFM/DFA analysis on each detail of PCB/PCBA, including component, via, silk screen, printing, surface mounting, reflow soldering, etc.

For CEM (quick turn PCB assembly service provider), VayoPro-DFM Expert could help you demonstrate advanced DFM/DFA analysis capability, thus won more customer confidence. In addition to the powerful DFM/DFA analysis functionality, DFM Expert also provides 3D DFM/DFA analysis report upon the completion of checking rules analysis. With the 3D report, you don’t have to communicate with the customer back and forth for many times. The design omissions and assembly defects are intuitively displayed in the report, easy for designers to learn the problems and modify the design. At the same time, CEMs shall also won a favorable impression due to such advanced DFM/DFA analysis capability.
