Automatic Stackup Design

Frontline InFlow generates automatic stackups for ICS designs. Due to the higher interconnection density of ICS, the designs usually require multilayer printed circuit boards – outer and inner layers and prepregs (epoxy-filled glass used for bonding and layer separation).


Process Modeling

Automatic process modeling
Frontline InFlow enables automatic process modeling for ICS designs for the early stages of process planning.

Frontline InShop® for ICS

Frontline InShop is an Industry 4.0 solution that connects, collects and monitors data from production machines, MES and pre-production data, enabling ICS manufacturers to quickly ramp up to production (NPI) and provide detailed data on every finished ICS unit they produce.

  • Identify, track and analyze defects throughout the supply chain, with the highest level of data granularity.
  • Enables near real-time anomaly detection and root cause analysis through big data analytics architecture.
  • Maximize yield and shorten NPI.

Graphic product modeling
Leading ICS manufacturers worldwide use Frontline InShop’s unique graphic product modeling capabilities to improve yield and shorten time to market.

Connected to AOI and electrical testing machines, Frontline InShop combines dedicated ICS analysis and metrology* with defect cluster cross-probing over the graphic product model (CAM), to identify via AI the cause of design and manufacturing process defects.
* The process of ensuring that measurements meet specified degrees of accuracy and precision.
