Electromagnetic compatibility and overheating are two key issues in printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing. Due to design and manufacturing limitations, the Department of Defense (DoD) suppliers put tremendous efforts on testing physical prototypes of PCBs. In this work, we developed a model-based interactive and 3D environment, the predictive environment for visualization of electromechanical virtual validation (PREVIEW), to test and analyze the virtual performance of PCBs, which aids designers assessing manufacturability of PCBs virtually prior to developing a physical prototype. Firstly, a thermal simulation module is developed and integrated into PREVIEW to analyze thermal performance of PCBs. Secondly; electromagnetic compatibility is visualized through simulation of 3D electromagnetic field and noise emission.
