Posted 2018 - 09 - 03

What's New?

Faster, more advanced panelization for both rigid and flex boards
Make your automatic panelization placement more efficient with InPlan’s major performance improvements for complex rigid boards and FPCs. With a new focus on multi-threading computation and maximized memory usage in both 32- and 64-bit applications, runtimes can be dramatically reduced.

Speed up and simplify multi-zone creation and review
Optimize zone creation for your flex board with an updated, intuitive interface to enhance and simplify the process of comparing, creating, and reviewing multiple zones, reducing mismatches between drawing and calculation.

Refined, customizable stackup image for improved customer communication
Give your customers exactly the information they need with a more flexible, customizable stackup image.

  • Display a detailed summary of each zone with new headers and footers.
  • Remove artificial gaps in the stackup image to give a more accurate view of the stackup layers.
  • Present a richer flex stackup with features such as button plating, separate adhesives and polyamide, and custom displays.
