Hello All, I am brand new to PCB design and I came across this forum while browsing. It’s very interesting to meet members here sharing information on PCB designing. I came across few articles on web regarding DFM(Design for Manufacturability) metho

*You* may be well versed, but not every designer is experienced or even familiar with DFM. I don't care how sophisticated the circuitry is, if you can't build it it's a lousy design, and as an EMS we see many designs that shouldn't have passed the

Wouldn't say there is a perfect tool for PCB design as it depends how much you have available to spend. Here's a list of different PCB design software, some of which are free and some come at a cost:- http://www.surfacemountprocess.com/pcb-design-s

Hey Dave, Thank you so much for the information. One of my friends suggested me that we have free DFM software’s offered by few PCB manufacturers which enables the designers to check their PCB design during the initial design process, preventing des
