Valor DFM Validation & NPI

New product introduction (NPI) platform for PCB design-to-manufacturing handoff.


DFM Validation & NPI

Valor NPI ensures a smooth transition from PCB design to fabrication, and on to assembly and test. The Valor NPI platform provides comprehensive DFM analysis, applied in parallel with your design flow for maximum advantage, or on design completion. By combining the Valor NPI manufacturing data creation tools and DFM, the manufacturing level product-model can be fully prepared for handoff to process-preparation.

Technical Specifications

Concurrent DFM verification incorporating manufacturing optimization into your PCB design process, enhancing fabrication and assembly process-compliance during layout.


  • For rigid, flexible and rigid/flex PCBs, including HDI and packaging substrates

  • More than 900 PCB DFM analysis checks, covering:

    • Fabrication

    • Micro-via

    • Back-drilling

    • Substrate manufacturing

    • BOM & AVL validation

    • Assembly & test processes

    • Assembly panel checking

  • Minimizes the number of revision spins to bring a new design to production release

  • Lowers total product cost by enabling automated DFM early in the design and NPI process

  • Improves the reliability of a design by locating manufacturing risks to be managed ahead of the production processes

  • Provides the interface between design and manufacture to ensure smooth transition to production

  • Reduces the amount of time spent on manufacturing “call-backs”.

  • Works with all major PCB layout tools
