Frontline InCAM Pro for ICS is a dedicated CAM system enabling IC substrate and WLP manufacturers to achieve higher resolution and accuracy, improve CAM process speed and respond to evolving industry needs. Intuitive, efficient and customizable, Frontline InCAM Pro for ICS helps increase revenues and speed up time to market.
Supports sub-micron accuracy
Achieve greater accuracy for symbols, coordinates, DFM and angle measurements with no coordinate or symbol rounding during input and output.
Advanced Hammerhead Etch Compensation features enable unprecedented precision and customization:
Contour to Circuit Conversion
Contour to Circuit Conversion automatically recognizes pads and traces from designs defined as contours and can be used to clean up DXF data (after Outline to Surface) and badly drawn data (after contourizing).
IC Package Feature Classification
IC Package Feature Classification recognizes and assigns attributes to specific parts of IC package jobs in order to treat these features differently during etch compensation and for use in Custom Analysis categories.
This DFM automatically recognizes gold tielines on IC substrate boards and marks the tielines with the attribute .tie_line, and optionally with the attribute .n_electric.
Connect Trace to Pad Center
Connect Trace to Pad Center automatically connects traces – that touch the pad or adjacent teardrop – to the pad center. The DFM extends the trace or extends and adds a trace.
Prerequisites: Convert Drawn Pads and Teardrop Recognition.
Signal Layer Checks – Measure Finger Width
Run this dedicated IC packages check to measure rectangle and oval pads on 1/3, ½ and 2/3 of its length. In addition, run Signal Layer Checks to measure spacing, annular ring and line width on copper layers.
Signal Layer Checks – Custom Analysis Categories
Split existing result categories into different categories according to user-defined criteria (feature type, attribute).
Etchback Mask Analysis
Check etchback mask validity against exposed or covered copper and solder mask. Etchback mask is created to clear the parts of the design used inside the layer to connect pads to be gold plated together and is etched away after the gold plating process.
Gold Tiebar Creation
Gold Tiebar Creation automatically adds gold plating tielines to complex BGA packages enabling routing to the opposite side of the board and routing tielines through via holes when there is no space to connect all the gold-plated pads on one side.
Bonding Pads Compensation
Run Bonding Pads Compensation to create additional compensation for oval bonding pads by adding an arc or square surface to the edge of each oval bonding pad on the end(s) of the pad not connected to a trace. The methods ‘Enlarge’ and ‘Enlarge & Reshape’ convert to rectangular pads or surfaces respectively.
Hammerhead Etch Compensation
Add extra compensation to the rectangular corners of pads and surfaces.
Ensure that die bond finger SMDs remain rectangular after the chemical etching process by automatically adding hammerhead shapes to each corner of a die bond finger pad, where spacing allows.
Supported compensation shapes:
Panel Gold Plating Checks
View reports on gold-plated nets in the PCB (marked by attribute or gold mask) that are not connected to the gold plating bar in the panel.
Increase revenues and accelerate time to market Frontline InCAM Pro for ICS enables faster turnaround for all job types and excels at speeding up automated flows, courtesy of clever algorithms and infrastructure, simultaneous processing, and extended RAM usage. Feel the difference, from the step-up in response time to the satisfying way the software reacts to user input.
More complex jobs in less time, shorter training Designed for the change-makers of the future, Frontline InCAM Pro for ICS is astonishingly easy to learn. With its clean design and intuitive feel, Frontline InCAM Pro for ICS enables the fastest and most efficient human-machine interactions with minimum training, helping CAM operators achieve more in less time.
