InSight PCB® is a web-based tool for managing and assessing incoming customer PCB data for non CAM experts. From automatically retrieving comprehensive product information to generating precise summary reports, InSight PCB® empowers Sales and Engineering people to work more independently, efficiently and profitably. The result: faster and more accurate quoting and product engineering, complete CAM data in minutes, early detection of manufacturing problems and increased throughput.

“InSight PCB® is a welcome enhancement to our existing Frontline CAM pre-production environment that will help us get accurate CAM project quotations to our customers more rapidly.”
― Kim O’Neil, General Manager, Prototron Circuits’ Tucson, Arizona facility
"InSight PCB® is the best DFM tool available for our purposes...The unique architecture employed by InSight provides the most comprehensive and readable results available. We see providing the complete set of DFM results, available to our customers in one single report, as a huge competitive advantage and a major benefit for our customers.”
― Nolan Johnson, CAD/EDA Manager, Sunstone Circuits
“It is extremely important that early on in the design stage we identify unnecessary cost and lead-time design decisions. InSight PCB® helps us identify and convey this information to our customers quickly and accurately.”
― Jeff Hughes, Vice President PCB Fabrication, Hughes Circuits, Inc.
“We are already seeing improvements in the efficiency and accuracy of the quoting process. We now have the ability to free up our front-end expert from being so heavily involved in quoting in order to focus more on CAM/Engineering tasks. This saves us both time and money.”
― Elden Hendrickson Jr., General Manager, Calumet
“By automating the data review process, we can sharpen the accuracy and competitiveness of our bids while also reducing the iterations between our front-end staff, OEM Engineers and sales team. This increases our engineering value to our customers and enables them to deliver their products to the market in shorter lead times with greater first revision success.”
― Greg Halvorson, President, Streamline Circuits

InSight PCB® automatically assesses incoming customer PCB data and retrieves product information for Sales and Engineering. Simply input job data, attach the relevant files and InSight PCB® automatically processes your job, silently running input, buildup, cleanup, analysis and panel calculation. Seconds later, literally, InSight PCB® delivers an easy-to-read PDF report presenting the entire data set for the job.
You have completed the InSight PCB® process.
InSight PCB® provides the ideal way to manage and assess incoming customer PCB data from virtually anywhere.
Automatically assess incoming customer PCB data and retrieve crucial product information for Sales and Engineering.
Shorten time to quotation - Say goodbye to RFQ bottlenecks and missed orders. Within minutes of receiving a job, InSight PCB® generates the precise analyses you need to build accurate price quotes* that ensure optimum sales margins. Be first to deliver quotes ahead of your competitors and win the business every time. *InSight PCB® does not generate the actual quotation.
Fast-track manufacturing instructions - Perform pre-CAM input quickly and easily and watch hours of work melt away. Cut engineering lead-time by creating DFM reports and Technical Query snapshots in minutes. Identify potential production problems instantly to avoid low yields and costly boards as a result of incorrect data.
As a web-based product, InSight PCB® lets you work remotely, tracking and managing RFQs from virtually anywhere — whether you’re in the office or in the field. Review a graphic image of the board or open customer job files on the move.
InSight PCB® saves CAM operators time by streamlining the way departments work. Sales people can prepare quotes without consulting CAM experts while incoming jobs can skip CAM and move straight to the Engineering stage. By reducing the load on the CAM department, CAM engineers have more time for their bottom-line tasks.
InSight PCB® integrates seamlessly with Frontline PCB Solutions’ CAM and Engineering products and with other systems via xml export, enabling enhanced collaboration and communication between stakeholders. Exchange data between systems and send notifications between operators, ending the use of paper forms and inefficient means of communication. Eliminate time-consuming and error-prone data re-entry resulting from multiple, unconnected systems.
Share and view real-time customer input data and a comprehensive PDF report for each job in a secure online space. Job reports include graphics, a DFM summary report with layer, drill and buildup tables, and statistical periodic reports. Review and edit job and customer data and RFQ parameters, and rerun the preCAM flow as needed. View graphical data, attached documents, preCAM flow results, related correspondence and the job log.
