Managing Rule Checks
The DfM validation challenge has increased over the past decade, thanks to the proliferation of new technologies such as flex boards, rigid-flex, chip-on-board, embedded components, and others. A new generation of design for manufacturing tools makes it possible to validate the design against design rules of all technologies and manufacturers that will be involved with the product in the early stages of the product development process.

Algorithm for Constructing the Transient Process in a Meander Delay Line in PCBs
A graphic-analytical method for simulation of the transient process, as described by the authors, allows users to identify the basic mechanisms of pulse distortion in a meander delay line, and obtain the analytical dependencies for calculation of the efficient delay of signals at any predetermined level of receiver.
