DFM / DFA / DFT Evaluation

We feel strongly about the value of good PCB design and layout and can provide a Design for Manufacturability, Assembly, and Test evaluation for your project. It’s a small investment that can pay big dividends over the manufacturing lifetime of your product. We'll review all aspects of your design and leverage our 30+ years of design and manufacturing expertise to suggest any improvements that will improve your quality, reduce your lead time, and deliver the performance you require at the lowest total production cost.

Areas of focus:

  • Design Optimization
  • Bare Board Elements:
    • PCB size and shape
    • Panelization
    • Fiducial type and locations
    • Number of layers
    • Solder resist / masking
    • Finishes
    • Via size and location
  • Component Elements (electrical and hardware):
    • Selection
    • Source
    • Placement
    • Geometry
  • Assembly Process
  • Test Elements:
    • Tooling hole locations
    • Bare board labeling
    • Test node/pad detail
    • In-circuit test (ICT) guidelines

Our engineers are experts in designing products that perform well and can be manufactured cost effectively. We can help you optimize an existing product or, if a new design is required, our engineers can work with you to build your product from concept to completion while incorporating DFM/DFA/DFT principles throughout. This is one of API EMS's key value added services to our customers.
