MARLBOROUGH, MA -- Downstream Technologies will host a webinar on assembly panel design using its proprietary software on Apr. 19.

Designers often need to array single boards into panels for assembly using a process involving step-and-repeat of Gerber images, a process that no longer is effective, the firm says.

"Today, with renewed focus on the design-to-manufacturing handoff, the entire PCB design process is influenced heavily by the need to reduce manufacturing costs and time to market. Every aspect of the PCB design must be considered against downstream processes, including the assembly process. The design of the assembly panel must be driven by the requirements of the PCB assembly process."

A webinar demonstrating how to solve the problem using BluePrint-PCB will be held Apr. 19 at 9 am Eastern and again at 2 pm Eastern. Register at
