DownStream Techonolgies - Solutions for Post Processing PCB Designs

Data Comparison

Post-production errors such as translation or operator mistakes can lead to longer manufacturing cycles, wasted resources and lost money. Verifying that the CAD Netlist matches the one extracted from the Gerber file is crucial to ensuring that the original design intent is maintained. Don't let unintended changes slip through to manufacturing.

DownStream provides Data Comparison solutions to help minimizes the risk of errors such as:

  • Accidental inclusion/exclusion of traces, vias, etc… on signal layers
  • Text or reference designators placed on a signal layer, instead of a silkscreen layer
  • Placement of drafting items on all layers, instead of specific document layers
  • Issues with CAM Layers, such as negative planes

Our solutions help:

  • Verify the CAD Netlist matches the one extracted from the Gerber file
  • Validate the Gerber files match the original CAD data
  • Locate and adjust translation and other common errors

DownStream Data Comparison solutions:

  • Netlist Compare
  • Streams Rules Checking
