VisualCAM is a powerful Manufacturing Engineering CAM software package that addresses the wide-ranging needs of EDA professionals. For the PCB layout engineer VisualCAM offers a complete set of Design Verification features. If you are a Bare-Board PCB engineer there is a full range of Manufacturing Verification and Tooling features available. Finally VisualCAM rounds out its capabilities by offering Loaded-Board PCB engineers an array of Assembly Processing capabilities not typically found within competitive products.
Design Verification: Verification of your design data is a critical step before submitting your job for production. Today's product complexities require PCB layout engineers to push spacing limits while laying out their board designs. Tighter tolerances can mean more expensive bare-boards, and thus the risks of scrap become more expensive as well--especially if the problems are not identified until after assembly. VisualCAM provides you with a Dynamic DfM Analysis Suite that offers 75+ Design and Manufacturing checks. A blend of traditional design related checks, like track-to-track and track-to-pad, as well as manufacturing checks, like acid traps and copper slivers, can be found within VisualCAM. Rounding out your design verification experience is VisualCAM's graphical netlist comparison with pin-point error detection. Compare your data set against any IPC-D-356 netlist, or use netlist information extracted from ODB++ or PADS ASCII files, and quickly zoom to any shorts or opens in the workspace.
Manufacturing Verification/Tooling: As mentioned above VisualCAM provides a Dynamic DfM Analysis Suite that provides both design and manufacturing related checks. The ability to save and load different rule sets allows you to verify your data against your original design spacing rules, or against your manufacturer's spacing rules. Bare-board PCB engineers and PCB layout engineers alike appreciate the more robust checking features found within VisualCAM, versus those found within traditional CAD tools. VisualCAM also helps you go beyond verification and allows you to complete your final manufacturing-related tasks with automated features like solder mask and paste mask generation. Complete production tooling can be generated using VisualCAM's Advanced Panelization capabilities. You can create unlimited panel templates to accommodate a wide range of standard panel sizes. Advanced Panelization will even let you step single designs or multiple designs within the same panel frame. Venting and thieving are fully automated and user-defined as well. VisualCAM can finalize any manufacturing process flow with a robust set of NC drill and mill capabilities, including functions such as drilled text, drilled slots, user-defined break tabs, and one of the most efficient sort engines in the industry.
