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.

Cadence’s Celsius: Don’t End up Holding the Hot Potato!

12/17/2020 | Clive "Max" Maxfield, Maxfield High-Tech Consulting
I was just thinking about the party game Hot Potato. It reminded me of today’s increasingly competitive marketplace: Accurate thermal analysis must be performed, and any potential issues have to be identified and addressed as early as possible in the design cycle. Otherwise the system will run into problems, market windows will be missed, and someone will be left holding the hot potato. Trust me, you do not want to be that someone.

Oops, I Did It Again: Survey Details Most Common Design Errors

12/09/2020 | Michelle Te, I-Connect007
We hate to admit it, but even the best of us make mistakes. Such is true with PCB designers and design engineers. We wondered: What are the most common mistakes that PCB designers make? Michelle Te has more.

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

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.
