Frontline PCB Solutions' InCAM Software Reaches a Record 1,500 Seats


Reading time ( words)

Frontline PCB Solutions announced at the TPCA show that its InCAM preproduction CAM solution has achieved a record number of 1,500 seats worldwide. InCAM is now deployed at over 330 sites — over 60 relying exclusively on InCAM — and has thousands of certified operators using InCAM software to produce the majority of advanced designs powering mobile devices today.

“InCAM delivers tangible benefits which explain its success,” said Yovav Sameah, president, Frontline. “Most of the world’s advanced fabricators already rely on InCAM’s high-precision CAM tooling and advanced data integrity for robust production across all PCB industry segments. The launch of InCAM Flex in 2016 significantly expanded InCAM’s capabilities and penetration, and Frontline’s partnership with Mentor ensures compliance with the ODB++ data format. Frontline has pioneered innovative CAM solutions for over twenty years and remains focused on meeting the challenges of this fast-moving industry. “

About InCAM

InCAM is a comprehensive CAM system deployed at the majority of the world’s advanced fabricators, powering PCB production across all PCB industry segments – from simple to complex MLBs through HDI, IC substrates, rigid-flex and flex PCB manufacturers. Fully ODB++ compliant, InCAM supports the latest versions of the PCB industry’s standard data format. InCAM combines editing and analysis with automatic design-for-manufacture optimization to perform fast high-precision CAM tooling – helping manufacturers achieve lasting profitability and a competitive edge. InCAM expands yield growth by enabling operators to multi-task and run processes in the background using the computer's multi-core CPU capabilities. Cycle time is shortened as colleagues collaborate on jobs in a data-secure environment. InCAM delivers advanced data integrity and fault indication by allowing interactive post processing on selected DFM results. InCAM operators enjoy a streamlined user interface and easy-to-use tools. In addition, backwards compatibility with Genesis 2000, for both data and automation, drives productivity even further.

Moving From 28 Gbps NRZ to 56 Gbps PAM-4: Is it a Free Lunch?

09/24/2018 | Yuriy Shlepnev, Simberian
The usual way of signaling through PCB interconnects is a two-level pulse, an encoding of 1s and 0s or bits, named NRZ (non-return-to-zero) or PAM-2 line code type. Increasing the data rate with the NRZ code type presents some obstacles. For a 28 Gbps NRZ signal, the bit time is about 35.7 ps with the main spectral lobe below 28 GHz. For a 56 Gbps NRZ signal, the bit time is about 17. 86 ps, with the main spectral lobe below 56 GHz. One can feel the problem already: Getting PCB interconnect analysis and measurements up to 56 GHz and beyond is very challenging, to say the least.

The Impact of PCB Dielectric Thickness on Signal Crosstalk

08/27/2018 | Chang Fei Yee, Keysight Technologies
Crosstalk is an unintentional electromagnetic (EM) field coupling between transmission lines on a PCB. This phenomenon becomes a major culprit in signal integrity (SI), contributing to the rise of bit error occurrence in data communications and electromagnetic interference (EMI). With the existence of mutual inductance and capacitance between two adjacent transmission lines on a PCB, crosstalk has become more severe due to the shorter signal rise/fall times at today’s higher data speed rates.

Advanced Stackup Planning with Impedance, Delay and Loss Validation

08/02/2018 | Yuriy Shlepnev, Simberian
A typical PCB design usually starts with the material selection and stackup definition—the stackup planning or design exploration stage. How reliable are the data provided by the material vendors and PCB manufacturers? Can we use these data to predict trace width and spacing for the target trace impedance or to calculate delays or evaluate the loss budget?
