Everyone’s design goal is to get it “right-the-first-time”, and many PCBs can achieve that goal. But rigid-flex designs are much more complex — they need to be correctly folded without any damage to the flex circuit nor affecting lifespan. Not just that, but rigid-flex boards also use materials and have many design constraints that are not common with rigid boards. It seems like quite a challenge to get it right without several respins.

During this webinar, you can see how adding Valor NPI to your rigid-flex design flow can help you identify and correct DFM problems before you ever release your design for a prototype. We will also explain the key capabilities and benefits of our rigid-flex DFM analysis.

What You Will Learn

  • Where the constraints reside that drive the analysis
  • How to select the desired rules based on various zones within the design (flex vs rigid areas) for automation of vNPI
  • How to run an actual analysis
  • How to analyze the results and how they apply to your designs PCB Design
