Eurocircuits tips & tricks – Marking Editor

Did you know that you could add your company logo to your PCB design, add text, Date code, UL marking or even determine where to locate your order number? Not only this but place them either in the copper layer or the silk legend layer?

But why would you do this? The answer is simple and opens a new world of possibilities and tools for design engineers. You can make your design more personalised by adding your company logo, what about adding your name to the board or easily marking it to identify a prototype and not production board? Add a QR code to the board to make it universally identifiable, Or how about simply specifying where your order number should be placed to ensure it is where you want and need it?

All of this has been made possible and easy to do through your PCB Visualizer, in just 3 minutes we can show you in the video below how to open a new world of PCB identification.

We have also create a short blog with more details to help you make the most of your Marking editor

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – Pre-production approval


Eurocircuits product news – Pre-Production Approval

Sometimes your data files may contain features that our automated PCB Visualizer process cannot recognize. Or you may be worried that your first layout is not quite right. Whatever your concern, we can give you the reassurance you need. You can do this by Setting up an approval step for the production-ready data for your board just before it goes into physical manufacture. As soon as our engineers have completed their checks, we will send you an email to advise you that the production files are ready and waiting for your approval. Check them using our PCB Visualizer tools, and continue the order, confident that you will get the boards you intended

This is our Pre-production approval process.

But did you know, during the front end data processing stage, our highly skilled engineers verify all your data against your order details and where there is a conflict will, if possible, make a correction and send you a Pre-production approval to ensure that what they propose is correct to your needs. You can see how this is done in our short 2 minute video below.

E&A beurs – overzicht van editie 2017

Bedankt Eurocircuits klanten. Jullie waren de grootste groep bezoekers van de beurs. 582 onder jullie kwamen naar de beurs met een gratis ticket verkregen via de Eurocircuits registratielink. Op een totaal aantal bezoekers van iets meer dan 4300, was dit weer voldoende voor het winnen van de marketing cup.

4300 bezoekers is een zeer respectabel aantal voor een locale elektronicabeurs. Het aantal bezoekers aan E&A blijft ook zeer constant over de jaren wat duidt op het belang van E&A in onze BENELUX markt.

Dit jaar vond de beurs plaats in hal 7 van de Jaarbeurs in Utrecht. Deze grotere hal gaf meteen een meer comfortabel gevoel en bood plaats aan een dertigtal extra exposanten tov 2015. De 170 exposanten dit jaar vertegenwoordigden het ganse spectrum van aanbod in de industriële elektronicamarkt wat een interessant informatie- en netwerkplatform bood voor de bezoeker.

De FHI branche Industriële Elektronica, de organisator van E&A, maakte gebruik van de grotere hal om een aantal start-up bedrijven de mogelijkheid te geven zich te tonen aan de markt. Meer hier.

Eurocircuits had dit jaar als focus de nieuwe PCB Assembly Visualizer en de vernieuwde eC-reflow-mate-V4.

KISS LoRa gadget – hot IoT item

Keep It Simple Stupid, Long Range Low Power cloud communicatie-applicatie, of kort, “KISS LoRa“, was een hit

KISS LoRa is een draadloos sensor/actuator platform met IoT-functionaliteit. Tijdens E&A2017, is het gadget ter plaatse geproduceerd op de Live Production Line en werd besproken tijdens een hackathon seminarie dinsdagnamiddag.

Eurocircuits heeft de print geproduceerd met inzet van de PCB PIXture soldereermaskertechniek.

Seminaries tijdens de beurs!

Vele bezoekers hebben elke dag een van de drie seminaries bezocht. U vindt alle presentaies van de 9 verschillende seminaries online. Klik hier! Onze presentative vindt u hier.

We hopen u weer te onmoeten tijdens Electronics & Applications in 2019.

Met vriendelijke groeten,

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – KiCAD native data direct import

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – KiCAD native data direct import

We process over 400 data sets a day for our customers. Front end data preparation is a critical stage of the process to ensure that the data we receive reflects what the designer had in mind, that it is manufacturable and that all requirements are fulfilled.

There are many CAD systems available on the market which are designed to provide Gerber data required to make your PCB’s. However one of the problems we often see with the data provided and which leads to delays and back and forth communication is ambiguous data labelling and missing data, this will be the difference between getting what you want, when you need it or not.

We have worked in the past to provide Design Rule Templates for Altium and Eagle which is a simple and effective way to guide you to producing the most cost effective design layout. In addition to this we developed our PCB Visualizer interface to directly utilise the container format from Eagle (*.BRD), this is a structured output which removes any ambiguity regarding layer structure, board outline and many other features which may normally require us to get clarification from you, additionally, every required layer is included (if you knew how many times we receive data without the drill file for the holes).

You will now be pleased to know that we have opened these benefits to KiCAD users by providing the possibility to Upload directly to PCB Visualizer the . kicad-pcb files, this is an encapsulated file format containing all the data required, with logical layer naming and ordering ensuring no misinterpretation or additional clarification.

Your can find more information here on what KiCAD-PCB provides and how you can configure this output.

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – Panel editor

The purpose of our Tips and tricks series is to help guide designers and purchasers to the best and most cost effective service possible saving time and energy doing things which we have created the tools online to do for you.One question which we are often faced is how to create Panels from your designs and this often comes in 3 forms:

I have a single PCB design but need it to be panelised

Eurocircuits’ Panel Editor

I have several different designs which I would like to be put into a panel

I have designed my own panel how do I define this in Visualizer

Eurocircuits’ How to create custom panel?

Of course our cleaver development team have provided excellent tools (panel editor) in our PCB Visualizer to make the Panelisation process very fast and easy.

To help further we have collected our experiences together to give advice to design the best layout for Panels and how to deal with Small or round PCB’s.

But did you know that we also offer 2 different ways to have your boards separated (V-cut and Break routing)?

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.
