White Paper Discusses the Latest PCB Manufacturing Data Formats


Reading time ( words)

Mentor Graphics has released a new white paper that discusses the new PCB manufacturing data exchange formats. In particular, the white paper focuses on ODB++, the complete PCB manufacturing exchange data format that contains all of the data required for defining a PCB product in manufacturing.

In the newest version of ODB++, content has been added based on input received from the thousands of people who use ODB++ and solutions-development partners worldwide. ODB++ Version 8 contains significant incremental improvements over the current mainstream version (ODB++ v7), and is designed to enable a smooth transition to higher levels of process integration and automation across the design/fabrication/assembly/test PCB flow.

Meriden has been established as a popular Midlands venue for Institute of Circuit Technology (ICT) meetings. On September 19, a multitude of Fellows, Members, and Associates gathered for the Institute’s autumn seminar, which was organised and hosted by ICT Technical Director Bill Wilkie. The agenda included five informative technical presentations, describing current research and development on significant topics relevant to the industry.

How to Feed Test Data Back to Engineering for Process Improvement

08/01/2019 | Todd Kolmodin, Gardien Services
Some people think of the PCB manufacturing process as a black box: design data goes to the manufacturer (fabrication house), and magically, the finished PCB is produced. While it may have been like that in the past, in actuality, fabricating PCBs today is quite a ballet of processes.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

07/24/2019 | Jeff Beauchamp, NCAB Group
Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.
