IMPROVING PCBA SOLDERABILITY BY DESIGN
Company: Valor Computerized Systems
Date Published: 10/1/2001 Volume: 14-4
However, most PCB CAD systems do not validate that the component land patterns placed on the printed circuit board meet manufacturing's solderability requirements. In addition, electronic assembly operations have to work with design data from PCB CAD tools that is not compatible with production data requirements or with their standard CAM tools for design of production tooling.
Utilizing the OBD++ interface with many of today's larger PCB CAD tool suppliers, and the Valor Parts Library (VPL), an on-line physical component package data library, Valor has developed CAM software tools that can analyze a PCBA early in the product development process to maximize the solderability by design of the finished product.
