Speaker: Kevin Webb, Technical Marketing Engineer - Mentor, A Siemens Business


Title:  Process Driven DFM


Abstract: Although DFM has been around for many years, PCB technology and the manufacturing processes have become more complex and varied, making it difficult to create a simple set of DFM rules. DFM applications today must be able to make intelligent decisions for the user about what DFM checks are relevant for their PCB materials and technology, all while considering the manufacturing processes to be used in the production. Those applications achieving this objective will serve their users better and make the benefits of Design for Manufacturing (DFM) attainable by a larger audience.


Bio: Kevin is a technical marketing engineer at Mentor Graphics with in-depth knowledge of Valor NPI, automation and PCB manufacturing processes. Prior to joining Mentor, he worked in PCB design, hardware management and application engineering at Blackberry, Foxconn, RadiSys and Nortel.
