The Value of PCB Manufacturing Quality During Prototype: You Get More Than You Pay For

by Nolan Johnson, CAD/EDA manager, Sunstone Circuits

Design flows are a key contributor to the efficiency of the electronic product development cycle. But one needs to look a little deeper to realize that the prototype fabrication portion of the process is of critical importance in catching design errors early and effectively. It is the prototype hardware, after all, which verifies the original design intent embodied by the CAD file contents; the relationship is symbiotic.

This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
