Words of Advice: Fabricator Feedback?

In a recent Design007 Survey, we asked the following question: What is the most important feedback that you receive after your board is manufactured? Here are just a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity:

Karl Bates, ConnectPCB: Clearance is less than I expect, copper balance, and thieving.

Chand Basha M, Anora Semiconductor: We could not plate the board to required plating thickness. We had to reduce few pad sizes to adjust the fabrication process. A few mechanicals in the design are altered slightly due to capability issues.

Jim Pierce, Axiom Electronics: Impedance specifications, testing results, and documentation.

The Supply Chain Shortage

The component shortage is getting crazy. Some PCB designers are finding their favorite capacitors on 50-week and 80-week lead times, or worse. How do you design a board today when the components you need won’t be available for a year or more?
