Ucamco Releases Enhanced Version of Integr8tor


Reading time ( words)

Ucamco has released the latest version of its Integr8or pre-CAM and engineering software, Integr8tor 2015.06. Existing users are encouraged to download this version as soon as possible.

Integr8tor v.2015.06 builds on the industry-leading Integr8tor platform to deliver even better functionality, performance and speed, confirming its status as the most powerful sales and engineering server for the automatic input and pre-quote analysis of client-generated PCB design data.

One of the most important developments in Integr8tor 2015.06 is its increased support of, and compatibility with, a wide range of data formats. Now, whether in colour or b/w for better readability, PDF files can be generated faster, and more reliably and accurately from source documents in the popular .docx, dwg and dxf formats. The converted files remain accurately faithful to the originals, with fully functional drop-down menus and checkboxes.

Integr8tor 2015.06 also offers broader drill support, allowing non-standard holes to be identified automatically and processed accordingly. This includes countersink or counterbore holes that are to be enlarged in a specific way, or holes that are to be filled with resin or copper. In another drill-based development, v.2015.06 is capable of calculating how many pressing cycles a board will have to go through from the drill spans. Both improvements ensure that, for every board being engineered, the processes needed and potential production bottlenecks can be identified, costed and calculated early, so they are part of the quote preparation and delivery commitment process right from the outset.

Among the throughput-and quality-enhancing features that improve Integr8tor's quality reporting are its recognition of even more edge-connector and SMD pad shapes; a new algorithm that improves the calculation of spacing between lines of the same net; and a new “auto-snap” feature that improves annular ring analysis by automatically placing plated drill holes in the centre of the copper pads. It also now flags overlapping holes within drill sequences. Furthermore, the QED XML files now enable technologies and capability classes to be identified quickly and easily, together with their critical parameter values, and now it's also possible to tailor which checks are run by Integr8tor.

Not least, Integr8tor 2015.06 offers even more support for the powerful Gerber X2 format. Integr8tor 2015.06 is about speed, accuracy and reliability – all of which are essential in the race to generate quotes in real time that reflect your real costs, your real processes, and your business's real needs. Integr8tor is helping PCB makers the world over revolutionise their businesses. Visit www.ucamco.com today and find out what it can do for yours.

TTM’s Approach to Stackup Design: Train the Customer

01/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this interview with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, TTM’s Julie Ellis and Richard Dang drill down into stackup design, detailing some of the common stackup challenges that their customers face when designing for both prototype and volume levels, and offering advice to designers or engineers who are struggling with stackup issues. They also discuss why having too many different prepregs in a stackup can be asking for trouble, and how proper stackup design can optimize both the fabrication and assembly processes.

Chapter 1 Excerpt from the Book ‘Thermal Management: A Fabricator's Perspective’

12/08/2020 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
Heat cannot be efficiently exchanged with stagnant air surrounding a hot device; however, it can be transferred away from the electronic component to the PCB using thermal vias. A thermal via is a good conductor of heat that runs between the top layer and bottom layer of the PCB, dissipating heat through simple conduction. In simple terms, thermal vias are plated holes located under, or electrically connected to, a surface-mounted heat source on a PCB that allows heat transfer through the hole.

This Month in Design007 Magazine: HDI Design, Landless Vias, VeCS, and More

11/09/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Andy Shaughnessy, Happy Holden, and Dan Feinberg recently met with James Hofer, general manager of Accurate Circuit Engineering, to discuss via design techniques and via reliability from the fabricator’s viewpoint. As Hofer explained, even with open lines of communication between the designer and the board shop, there are plenty of variables to contend with regarding proper via design, especially when working with PTFE materials.
