REVIEW ON PCB Design Analysis Software

The above image is the starting window of the NEXT DFM Software then click on the file and then open the gerber file of your PCB design by selecting and uploading all the layer files. I have uploaded a gerber file of IR Sensor for the demo.

 

Then you can select and deselect any layer of your design by simply clicking on the layers present on the left most window.

Now you can also choose the colours as per your wish we have choice of green, blue, black, red, yellow and white colours and also choice of the surface finish and silkscreen options as a reviewer I can say that this is a great option to customize your PCB colour and other physical properties along with the visuals on the middle window screen.

This is how it looks after changing the colour of the PCB to blue. This tool helps you to visualize your PCB in the best way. On the Right top you will be having details about the number of layers in the PCB and its dimensions. On the right bottom you find the estimated price and the delivery time you can order directly by clicking on the Order now button.
