Release version: 2019

Manufacturing and Production

Board Viewer enables users to perform accurate and efficient verification at the production stage, which means they do no need to view separate Gerber files and manually prepare change notes for circulation to their design teams. When manufacturing and production issues are identified, users provide design feedback using Board Viewer’s comment capabilities. This accelerates communication across departments (internal or external), reducing design cycle time.

Design reviews

During design reviews, Board Viewer can significantly reduce product development time by allowing users to exchange their feedback intelligently and avoid costly design iterations. The ability to share native Design Force and Board Designer data across an organization helps companies conform to internal or industry standards, and improves application of corporate best practices and design guidelines.

Global collaboration

Global design teams benefit by simultaneously reviewing and communicating on projects with a single design file for Design Force and Board Designer, saving time and maintaining traceability. With global design teams facing the increased pressure of shorter delivery schedules and intense competition, Board Viewer enables comprehensive inspection of designs to enable design teams to complete their projects within shorter time frames.
