Title: What Is DFX, Why Is It so Important, and Who Should Do It?

Date: August 11, 2021

Time: 11:00am PT / 2:00pm ET

Presented by: Cherie L. Litson, MIT CID/CID+, EPTAC Instructor & Owner of Litson1 Consulting

How much do you want to spend on your design?

Do you rely on the fabricator and assembler to know what you want for your finished PCB?  If so, there is something you should know:  They know THEIR job, they don’t know YOUR design. 

The first priority of most fabrication and assembly companies is to keep their costs down.  It should be the priority of the PCB Design Team as well. To do that, it’s important to know what areas increase fab and assembly costs and what are the options available to mitigate these costs. And not create an undesired degradation of the electrical circuit.

Good DFX checking is the key! When you design for Fab, Assembly, and Test, two things become important:

  1. Team Planning
  2. Communication Methodology

This Technical Session will cover the Tips & Tricks of good DFX no matter what software tools you have.

Presenter Bio:

Cherie L. Litson is the principal in Litson1 Consulting; since 2003, one of four active Master Instructor Trainers (MIT) in the US for the IPC CID and CID+; and a part time Instructor for Basic Electronics at the Everett Community College, Everett, WA. 

I established Litson1 Consulting in 2008. This allowed me to support multiple small, medium, and large-scale companies with PCB Designer projects and write articles on targeted PCB subjects in multiple venues. I have developed and presented independent, targeted educational programs for engineering staff, non-technical personnel, local community colleges, and overseas clients. 

My experience in the medical, aviation, and commercial sectors have given me a broad perspective of the PCB industry. I delight in finding new ways to develop products while staying grounded in the basic concepts of physics and the capabilities of the “Real world” at the current moment.
