Learn more about DFT Audit and the other options available to PADS users at www.mentor.com One of the topics that frequently pops up when talking to customers is the problems they encounter when testing designs. Increasing product miniaturization and functionality while maintaining quality performance is vital, but accurate and effective testing can be a real headache. In this video, I take a look at Design For Test (DFT) Audit, a Mentor PCB PADS option that enables you to analyze, verify, and provide PCB test point coverage and reporting before releasing your PCB for fabrication. DFT Audit uses rules specifically developed for programming in-circuit test equipment, thus guaranteeing 100% testability for all nets on your board and helping to ensure accurate testability prior to fabrication. By cutting out needless prototypes, DFT Audit decreases time to market, improves design performance, and reduces cost. By Jim Martens, Mentor Graphics Product Marketing Manager
