Eurocircuits TIPS & TRICKS – PCBA Visualizer




Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – PCBA Visualizer


We are 3 months on the way now with our PCBA Visualizer beta testing phase and we would like to share our experiences and some tips & tricks how to use our tool efficiently.

After launching PCBA Visualizer, the natural DRC DFM extension tool of our well proven PCB Visualizer for bare boards, we processed about 5 jobs per day for various customers. This has given us the necessary info to start building a professional verified component data base and improving the tools to complete your BoM and CPL analyses.

We have compiled our message in a video on Eurocircuits.TV

Eurocircuits NEWS – Fantastic 1st quarter of 2017




Eurocircuits NEWS – Fantastic 1st quarter of 2017


The New Year 2017 took a high flight right from the start. Customers were very active and Eurocircuits was filled with eager to launch new projects.

Comparing the first quarter of 2016 and 2017 in PCB sales gives the following result:

1st quarter of the year
2016 2017
Customers 6 103 6 359 4,2%  
Orders 26 320 29 132 10,7%  
PCB sales 5 482 522 6 198 055 13,1%  

This proves to be a good start for the year. We will work very hard to continue to earn the trust of our continuously growing number of customers.

Eurocircuits NEWS – Q1-2017 PCBA Visualizer launched in Beta

Our Eurocircuits team was very exited to present our newest tool: PCBA Visualizer. Our PCB Visualizer tool for DRC/DFM analysis of the bare board has established itself as proven value to our customers. PCBA Visualizer or Assembly Visualizer is the natural extension of PCB Visualizer. PCBA Visualizer offers DRC-DFM functionality on the populated board even before anything has been produced thus allowing to fix mistakes at minimal cost.

PCBA Visualizer has been received with a lot of fantastic feedback but also many questions about how you can utilise the PCBA Visualizer to save time and money by Verifying your Gerber data matches your Bill Of Materials (BoM) and Component Placement List (CPL), an early warning system to identify data issues and eventually resolve them online.

You may have noticed when saving your offer the option to participate in our Beta testing

In order to take advantage of this tool and understanding how you can benefit and correct your data please take 15 minutes to look at our PCBA Visualizer video below:

EUROCIRCUITS TIPS & TRICKS – OUTLINE EDITOR




Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – Outline editor

Often we are contacted through our online chat or e-mail saying “I have uploaded my data but PCB Visualizer is not showing my holes inside the board” or “I have a message – no outline detected“.

These are common questions occurring because PCB Visualizer cannot automatically determine these details when more than one result can be found.

Never fear, we have developed a tool specifically to help in these situations which is easy to use and very intuitive. You can find a great blog here we have created to explain the tools and how to use them, alternatively you can also click the video below to view our 3 minute video tutorial.

Eurocircuits organizes 2 interesting 1-day seminars for electronics designers at Eurcocuits Aachen!

Content

  • eC-workshop – high speed design
  • eC-workshop – KiCAD

April 4 – 2017 – eC-workshop – high speed design.

 

Creating complex layouts with modern EDA-tools is a lot easier than it has been in the past. However there are still challenges one has to face when using state of the art technology. Especially hi-speed designs that make use of DDR2/3-RAM and fast serial interfaces like LVDS and hi-speed USB may pose a challenge.

This workshops deals with the issues that arise when creating layouts for such hi-speed designs. One needs to consider suitable multilayer-stackups as well as controlled impedance and signal propagation delay.

There are a lot of tools available to help with these issues, but most of these tools are quite expensive. In this workshop we will examine how to create sophisticated hi-speed layouts using EAGLE and tools that are either open-source of free of charge.

More on this eC-workshop here!

For participant convenience and to ensure the best possible quality of the workshop, we limit the number of participants per session to 10. Register for this seminar via this link.

April 5 – 2017 – eC-workshop – KiCAD.

 

KiCAD is a free & open-source software suite for EDA. For a while now the layout engine of KiCAD has been more powerful than similar layout engines of some commercial EDA suites.

KiCAD is available for Windows, OSX and Linux – in binary and source code.

This workshop covers schematics capture and layouts using KiCAD.

Eurocircuits at Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show 2017

Eurocircuits are renowned for their quality Prototype PCB’s and Equipment but did you know we also provide solder paste stencils for precise application of solder paste to your design.

So the question is how do you achieve that professional production quality on a prototype design? Eurocircuits have the answer, we developed a unique free service of eC-registration where we place registration holes in a frame around your boards and registration holes in the stencil for precise, repeatable stencil alignment.

But the most impressive part to this is how to cost effectively align the board and stencil we have developed with a reusable system we call eC-stencil-fix you can see how it works below:

The Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show is free to visit and runs 21st  – 23rd March 2017 In Farnborough.

See first-hand how Eurocircuits can help you produce professional assembly of your prototype designs.

You can check out more of our prototype solutions on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/eurocircuits.

We look forward to welcoming you there!
