The Job Manager groups together basic job planning tools - automatic CAM data analysis and extraction, buildup formation, process tree generation, data setting from order entry and electronic manufacturing and customer specs - making it a starting point and a solid reference point for engineers.
Use the Automatic Stackup Wizard to generate stackups and update the list of materials required for high layer count and impedance controlled boards, both symmetrical and non-symmetrical. The Automatic Stackup Wizard generates multiple working solutions based on your company’s manufacturing know-how built into electronic rules and specs, using your own material database and your impedance solver of choice. Automatic stackup chooses the least expensive material set, while maintaining top quality stackup design.
InStack makes extensive use of electronic specifications (specs) that contain all the information found in written manufacturing and customer specs. Attach a spec to the job to automatically set job attributes and if more than one spec is attached to the job, merge data based on predefined precedents.
Automatically generate a comprehensive Bill of Materials (BOM) that lists the materials used for the PCB itself, such as copper foils, cores, prepregs and laminates. Quantities are computed automatically per part, array or panel. Edit automatically generated BOMs.
InStack® excels at creating data-rich jobs and generating accurate, cost-efficient stackups and BOMs - for you and your customers. Intuitive and easy-to-use, InStack®’s advanced automated tools simplify tasks every step of the way, achieving in minutes what would otherwise take hours or even days to complete.
InStack® automatically selects the most cost-efficient materials available and sorts stackup solutions by cost, helping you choose the solution that makes the most sense, and saves you the most cents!
InStack® meets all your customers' requirements by simultaneously processing all the crucial factors - thickness, material and impedance constraints, resin starvation, tolerances, and material costs - to deliver the best possible stackups for accuracy, manufacturability, and price.
InStack® extracts true layer copper percentage from CAM data to accurately compute the amount of resin flow of B-stage dielectrics. Thickness is calculated taking solder masks, plating thicknesses, and even material processing into consideration. InStack® also uses rules and manufacturing specs to keep stackup designs within manufacturing tolerances.
InStack® seamlessly integrates with well-known impedance modelers, accessible from the InStack® desktop. With your very own tried-and-tested impedance calculator embedded inside the application, you'll really have no need for any other tool.
The CAM Viewer graphically displays production layers, drill programs, and panels with powerful viewing enhancement capabilities to help you make informed decisions on production issues. Features include: image enlargement, profile creation, taking measurements, and viewing feature details, attributes, and e-notes.
The Navigator contains checklist data (data integrated into the job during ODB++ synchronization), snapshots, and text entries. Information sorting features help operators quickly identify problems and decide whether the data is ready for production.
Rich in functionality, the Navigator includes snapshot and text entry creation tools and the multi-layer snapshot button. The best way to use the Navigator is alongside the CAM Viewer, which displays the selected record enlarged and in full color for maximum ease of view.
You can run a range of utilities straight from the InStack® desktop:
