Features

Automating workflows from customer design to the production floor

Genesis 2000® creates a seamless pre-production environment for automating processes, from the customer’s door to the production floor.

Genesis 2000® combines planning, product engineering, and tooling into a single seat, supported by a unified ODB++ database. Add modular integration and an intuitive interface and you have unmatched bottom line results: higher throughput and measurable cost savings.

Automation for speed and accuracy

With the most extensive line-mode command access in the industry and embedded automation tools, you can automate planning, job analysis, editing, photo-tool creation, drill, rout, fixturing, AOI, electrical testing outputs, and workflow management.

The accuracy of ODB++ contour-based algorithms means high repeatability, improved quality, and complete tooling consistency.

ODB++ for data integrity

Import CAD/EDA data via the ODB++ database. ODB++ contains a range of electrical, mechanical and graphic entities, and multiple attribute capabilities. ODB++ transfers information seamlessly, without sacrificing critical data.

Serving as a central repository for all Genesis 2000® information and activities, ODB++ is a channel for full interdepartmental integration and improved communications.

New DFM environment for increased yield

Use Genesis 2000®’s powerful Design for Manufacture (DFM) tools to automate and self-check processes, quickly and without errors.

In just a few hours, you can customize DFM programs for copper balancing, pinhole elimination, soldermask, silkscreen and signal layer optimization, legend detection, redundant vector removal, and line unification.

End-to-end communications for control

Stay on top of every detail and keep your entire team up-to-date with the Genesis 2000® Framework Module that delivers electronic WorkForms, WorkFlows, and Java?based CyberForms and CyberFlows. Cut paperwork while supporting communication between fabricator, customer, and board designer.

Advanced utilities designed for you

  • Networking – Genesis 2000® supports a distributed database. Operators see a virtual flat database while the actual physical location is managed by the system.
  • Licensing - All Genesis 2000® modules are structured around a floating license mechanism.
  • Privileges - A privilege level is assigned at logon to each system user so that that only authorized operators can perform certain functions.
  • Log file– You can optionally record all system actions and error messages for auditing.
  • Multi-language support - Supports Asian and European languages.
  • On-line manual – Access the online user manual from the Genesis 2000® desktop.
