Frontline Releases InCAM 2.32


Reading time ( words)

Released on January 10, 2016, InCAM 2.32 is a minor new version that introduces numerous workflow throughput enhancements, including the ability to run Step Compare in the background and to add multiple dimensions simultaneously. In addition, two new DFM functions improve the production process for HDI and IC-packaging boards.

New Features

Reduce the galvanic effect during the gold plating process
Run the new Non-Tieline Gold Galvanic Compensation DFM to calculate the gold/copper or copper/gold ratio that is below a defined threshold and take steps to reduce the galvanic effect during gold plating.

Apply etch compensation to the narrow parts of a surface
Use the new Patch Bottlenecks DFM to automatically detect locations where surface width is below the defined value and apply a patch to these locations, enabling the application of etch compensation to the narrow parts of a surface.

Quickly create dimensioned drawing with multiple dimensions
Create dimensioned drawings faster – (co)ordinate, linear or baseline dimensions – by adding multiple dimensions at the same time.

Get Step Compare results per layer as soon as they’re ready
Run Step Compare in the background while getting on with other tasks. Step Compare can run in parallel on different layers, delivering results one by one as they become ready, while the remaining layers continue processing.

Improved sub-assembly electrical testing
Optimize netlists and create an electrical testing program for sub-assembly testing.

Entering—and Enjoying—the Industry

02/13/2018 | Jonathan Zinski, I-Connect007
I was recently given the opportunity to write an article for our publication. Being somewhat new to this industry, I figured it would be a good idea to write an introduction on how I got into electronics—specifically the part most people my age don’t give thought to.

Nano Dimension’s 3D Printing: Prototypes at the Push of a Button?

01/26/2018 | Barry Matties, Publisher, I-Connect007
SICK AG is a global manufacturer of sensors and sensor solutions for industrial applications, with headquarters located in Waldkirch, Germany. After a demo of Nano Dimension’s new 3D printing machine at productronica, Barry Matties met with SICK’s Danny Wernet to discuss its pros and cons and get his overall impression of the technology. Are 3D prototypes really as simple as feeding in a Gerber file and pushing a button?
