Silicon Valley, CA, April 3, 2014 – Bay Area Circuits, Inc., a leading manufacturer of quick-turn printed circuit boards (PCBs), today announced the release of a new DFM tool named InstantDFM. This first-of-its-kind, fully automated, web-based tool enables printed circuit board (PCB) designers all over the world with the ability to upload their Gerber files and immediately receive a Design for Manufacturability (DFM) report.

InstantDFM checks process-critical parameters, providing detailed design feedback enabling users to resolve any issues prior to submitting their design for manufacturing. Users are able to view a DFM report in real-time from within the web interface and can download the full report in PDF format. Once satisfied with their design, users are able to easily transition to a quote and order process if desired.

“While there are many ways for a designer to get a DFM report we’re proud to be the first to launch a completely free, web-based DFM report tool,” said Stephen Garcia, President of Bay Area Circuits. “InstantDFM provides designers with a simple solution to get immediate feedback during the design process which will allow them to correct any errors and ultimately save them time.”
