The Valor™ NPI for New Users course will help the user understand the structure of ODB++ data, plus where that data comes from. The course teaches the interface to many basic Valor NPI tools plus usage of the Valor™ Parts Library (VPL) for enhancing analysis results. Fabrication analysis and assembly analysis are covered as well as using PCB Layout tool addins to provide mechanisms for performing analysis earlier in the PCB design process. The user will also learn how to interpret the reported results from the analysis.
Familiarity with concepts of PCB design and the process of PCB fabrication and assembly.
