Frontline InCAM® Pro is a new CAM system for PCB manufacturers, housing some of the most sophisticated technology we’ve ever developed. Intuitive and blazingly fast, Frontline’s new flagship product redefines what’s possible in the CAM we use every day.
In 2020, Frontline started offering new Frontline InCAM Pro packages. The packages are available as TERM licenses only, replacing the seats that Frontline used to sell, such as Graphic Editor and QA.
Frontline InCAM Pro packages are differentiated in price and functionality and can be mixed as shown in the table below. They offer customers way more value compared to the existing offering, since most existing cost options are included in the new packages. Customers no longer need to purchase each cost option separately, and have access to new functionality within the product.
In addition, Frontline InCAM Pro packages provide solutions to new factory and market technologies, ease the decision making process, and simplify product operation.
Frontline offers three levels of packages:

I already have Frontline InCAM® Pro and I just want to buy an additional Drawing & Dimension license. How can I do that?
Frontline has stopped selling cost options as stand-alone options. There are two ways to get this functionality:
I already have Frontline InCAM® Pro and I just want to buy an ADETCH license. How can I do that?
To get ADETCH, you should buy the Fine Line – Wet process tools package. To buy this package, you must have the Professional package. You can do this either by buying a new Professional package or upgrading an existing Frontline InCAM Pro seat to the Professional package.

Increase revenues and accelerate time to marketFrontline InCAM® Pro enables faster turnaround for MLB and 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 trainingDesigned for the change-makers of the future, Frontline InCAM Pro is astonishingly easy to learn. With its clean design and intuitive feel, Frontline InCAM Pro enables the fastest and most efficient human-machine interactions with minimum training, helping CAM operators achieve more in less time.
Popup-oriented designThe popup-based interface enables at-a-glance access to multiple functions and multi-tasking on multiple screens, for faster interaction with the system.
Command Line Interface (CLI), auto-completion and keyboard operations Type commands and use keyboard shortcuts for fast orientation and operation. Choose from built-in commands or create custom ones. The clever auto-completion feature means you only need to input the first few characters.
Easy, efficient and personalizedWith an emphasis on customization and ergonomic GUI design, Frontline InCAM Pro features a bird’s-eye view Layer Matrix for layer management and a Layer List that includes your chosen layers and hides those you’ll need later.
Ready for emerging technologiesDesigned to meet growing demand for smaller geometries and smarter electronic devices, Frontline InCAM Pro integrates support for the industry’s most exciting emerging technologies and trends – 5G, substrate-like circuits, flex and Industry 4.0.
Join the Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 revolutionFrontline InCAM Pro supports automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies via advanced traceability and PCB numbering.
Speed up time to market and eliminate errors with over 300 trusted DFMs that ensure manufacturability and quality. Automatically adjust silk screen, solder mask, copper layers, impedance lines and more. Simplify feature handling by automatically assigning attributes.
Save Interactive Spacing Repair (ISR) settings Quickly solve spacing challenges and get alerts if spacing cannot be achieved. The trace modification tool lets you maintain minimum annular ring and, using predefined settings per feature pair, enables fast handling of spacing problems, without needing to reset the parameters every time.
Fast Interactive Silkscreen Repair (ISSR) Shorten cycle time using ISSR tools for silkscreen handling – identify, resize and edit similar frames and texts, including any rotations and scale.
Snap between layersA revolution in usability, Smart Snap lets you snap to all displayed layers using several snap modes at once – so there’s no need to switch modes or layers.
Smart selectionFor fast editing, select multiple elements at once, using one or more selection methods.
Stackup collaborationFrontline InCAM Pro enables stackup integration from Frontline InFlow to save time and ensure consistency and reliability.
