Design For Manufacture of Printed Circuit Boards

  • Sammy G. Shina


Over the course of the last several years, the phrase design for manufacturability (DFM) has joined the growing list of three-letter acronyms that frequently appear in business and manufacturing publications. Among the benefits of DFM that have already been realized by the first converts are included faster product development cycles, reduction in time to market (TTM), and lower fabrication costs.
