DfR is often requested to audit the PCB fabrication process of a customer’s supplier. Understanding the process variations and nuances is vital to performing a viable analysis. This white paper delineates DfR’s approach to this task. The audit encompasses all levels of PCB fabrication, from generic multilayer rigid boards to complex rigid-flex configurations.
Audits can be performed to assess the viability of a new supplier, to assure their compliance with our customer’s requirements, or to identify an issue that has evolved into a failure analysis situation.
