Mentor Graphics introduced vSure version 9.0, which is the successor to Valor Enterprise 3000 Design-for-Manufacturing (DFM) tool. vSure v9.0 enables designers to perform extensive DFM analysis during the PCB design process. This improves productivity, avoids costly design re-spins, and speeds the time to target high-volume production. The vSure product line integrates with both Mentor and non-Mentor PCB design solutions to address a worldwide market in all industry segments. The vSure release 9.0 tool is available now.
