Mentor Chalk Talks
Shift Left for Fewer PCB Re-Spins
Design rule checking (DRC) is becoming more important with today’s complex PCB designs. With the complexity of today’s designs, the old ad-hoc methods just don’t cut it. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rory Riggs from Mentor about how Hyperlynx DRC can help get your next design out on time without those pesky re-spins.
