Design for panelization

To ensure successful panelization and maintain the integrity of the individual PCBs, several design considerations must be taken into account.

- Panel size should be optimized to maximize material utilization and minimize waste.
- Adequate spacing must be maintained between individual PCBs to allow for depanelization and prevent damage during the separation process.
- Openings should be located outside the active area of the PCB to avoid interference with the circuitry.
- The method of depanelization, whether by tab routing, v-scoring, or other technique, must be considered. Appropriate spacing and panel features must be provided to ensure clean and efficient depanelization.
- Fiducial marks are important for automated assembly processes. These marks serve as reference points to allow accurate placement of components on PCBs.
