Instantly check your design to qualify it for assembly and manufacturing.

Accelerate the design to-manufacturing handoff process. PCBflow connecting designers directly with manufacturers, it enables a DFM analysis using the current constraints for a specific manufacturer during the early stages of the design process, reducing design iterations, costs and time-to-market.


Strict Security Standards

Secure, cloud-based, collaborative environment with no IT investment. Siemens takes information security seriously for the management of cloud environments and product offerings.

Design for Assembly

Design for assembly (DFA) for manufacturer-specific BOM validation and identification of component placement and manufacturing violations. Users who lack access to ODB++ or IPC2581 can now easily upload their designs in Gerber 274x format.

Quick Pricing

Designers can now immediately get an accurate price estimate for the manufacturing and assembly of any design, simply by requesting a QuickPrice from within PCBflow, powered by Boardera.

Smart, Self-explanatory & Interactive

Fast and easy – fabrication DFM analysis in two simple steps • Smart, self-explanatory and interactive – DFM report includes critical violations, filtering, statistics, summary tables and error grouping.


Designed to accelerate, simplify and improve the handoff process from design to production. Designers and manufacturers can connect to share and collaborate on the platform, and instantly deliver designs to production.

Get to Market Faster

Save time and costs in the design-to manufacturing handoff process by addressing manufacturability issues during the design phase

A new vision for electronics manufacturing

As a cloud-based tool, PCBflow requires no installation or configuration. Designers can simply upload Design files into the secure cloud environment and select one or more manufacturers to apply process capabilities to the DFM analysis.

PCBflow even supports flex and rigid-flex DFM analysis. Then guides through design violations, providing an interactive, web-based analysis and a downloadable PDF report for sharing.

Peter Fruehauf, Project Manager, Siemens CT

Especially designers in small and medium businesses should run a DFM analysis as well, because otherwise they would make PCB designs, which are actually not manufacturable.

Tamir Hazan, Owner, Speed – Board Electronics Ltd.

For PCB designers, project sharing is very important. Designers and manufacturers should be able to work with OES. PCBflow allows that.

Evgeny Makhline, Nistec CTO

With PCBflow, manufacturers can prevent losses related to false production, reduce repairs by 80% and free up to ~600 engineering and quality hours per year – hours that can be invested in innovation and improvement

Martin Franke, Business Development Electronics, Siemens CT

A manual check always includes the risk of overlooking things. But, using this tool, you have an automatic iteration between the PCB fabricator on one hand and the designer on the other hand. The report hepls us to improve the process in two ways: first of all, time, but also quality.
