Valor NPI (New Product Introduction) provides concurrent DFM verification, which incorporates manufacturing optimization into your PCB design process. Through this application, you can identify opportunities for fabrication and assembly improvements during component placement and later avoid having to re-route the PCB.
You can even automate the intervals for DFM verification and review results in near real-time so the design flow is streamlined and efficient. If an error is identified, a single click takes you to the location on your PCB design so that you can remedy the issue.
Valor MSS (Manufacturing System Solutions) is a complete manufacturing execution suite designed to integrate solutions for seamless operation to assist manufacturers in the design, planning, monitoring, control, scheduling, box build, traceability, test and rework processes of PCB assembly operations. The Valor Parts Library (VPL) is a unique service to the PCB design and manufacturing industries. Accurate physical models of all your electronic components and connectors, in a consistent CAD/CAM-friendly format, delivered directly into your engineering applications.
