Use a single tool for all SMT programming tasks
Keep your assembly, test and inspection data always up-to-date with a single environment for all stages of the surface mount technology (SMT) manufacturing process. Eliminate the need for manual, error-prone updates, which can cause consistency and reliability issues.
Design anywhere, build everywhere
Save time and reduce set-up costs by sharing the complete product model data, including printed circuit board (PCB) data and all related part and package data. Don't restart the new product introduction (NPI) process for each location. Flexibility to move products between different locations is a key requirement for multi-site PCB manufacturers.
Preserve manufacturing know-how
Capturing manufacturing process knowledge can maximize efficiency now and in the future. Auto-generation captures part and package data. This can speed up future processes, such as switching manufacturing setups.
Use a single data model for all processes and vendors
Reduce manufacturing mistakes with a single data model. This covers multiple processes and multi-vendor programming support, including:
- Built-in error checking
- Learning library
- Profiles for each design center
This enables intelligent hand-off of PCB design, with a complete and accurate data model of the PCB assembly that is fully optimized for manufacturing.
