Design Review

PCB Design Review

Improving communication between multidisciplinary teams is a key way companies can maintain a competitive edge and promote design quality. Where PCB designs are outsourced, this becomes even more important. In a typical scenario, Electronic Designers want to pass back comments while reviewing the design. Or, once a product has been assembled, Mechanical Engineers need to communicate an issue affecting manufacturing.
