Haven't seen CAM350/DFMStream in a while? Now is the perfect time to re-evaluate this software solution. With the revolutionary changes in Release 14.5 we now support the importation and visualization of CAD designs containing Flex, Rigid Flex and Embedded component data in both 2D and 3D views. Key highlights include:

Import /Export of ODB++ and IPC-2581 Rigid Flex Designs
Import/Export of ODB++ and IPC-2581 Embedded Parts Designs
Stack Up Visualizer Rigid-Flex Related Updates:

  • Visualize and Manage Multiple Stackups Present in Rigid-Flex Designs
  • Support for PCB Core Materials Definition
  • Rigid-Flex Stackup Exchange with your PCB Fabricator
  • New Rigid-Flex and Other Advanced Packaging Material Types

3D Viewing of Rigid-Flex Designs, Embedded Components, Slots, Cutouts and Cavities
Creation and Management of Rigid-Flex Related Areas:

  • Stack up Zone Areas
  • Bend, Rigid, Flex and Stiffener areas
  • Layer Profile Areas

Expanded Drill Checking and Via-in-Pad DFM analysis

In Release 14 we introduced:

  • 3D visualization and documentation of manufacturing data
  • Completely new and streamlined user interface for CAM350/DFMStream
  • Improved management and execution of all DFM analysis functions
  • Seamless sharing of data among all DownStream products with our common database
  • Support for 64 bit, as well as so much more
We created a truly integrated 2D/3D environment for improved PCB post processing. CAM350/DFMStream is designed to analyze, verify, and optimize a PCB design for successful fabrication.

Best scenarios require a predictable and error-free transition from design to manufacturing. Discovering design errors during the manufacturing cycle leads to production delays and unexpected costs. When analyzing for potential errors before committing a design to fabrication there is more time and options to address errors properly.

At this webinar you will learn how DFMStream provides powerful DFM capabilities in an easy-to- use environment, saving you valuable time and resources, while reducing manufacturing delays.

By identifying DFM issues before fabrication, DFMStream helps you realize shortened turn-around times, improved product quality, and overall reduced costs.

Key Demonstrations

With CAM350/DFMStream 14.0 we will demonstrate everything we have to offer, while highlighting all the remarkable new features and functionalities within Release 2018.

DFMStream uses a “Stream” file to queue a series of DFM analysis checks and can combine netlist or layer comparison, design rule verification, fabrication and assembly verification with a single click of a button.

Design Analyzer analyzes the contents and complexity of a PCB design against the capabilities of the PCB fabricator. This functionality helps the user choose the correct manufacturer and reduces hidden costs and unexpected delays.

It's in the Details

DFMStream combines DFM analysis and PCB processing for engineers and PCB designers. The software offers deep, yet easy-to-use analysis and processing tools for any user. DFMStream can be incorporated during any phase of the PCB design cycle.

DFMStream offers full verification of design and manufacturing rules on PCB design databases, Gerber, and NC data to ensure the data complies with design intent. In addition, rule files may be saved and re-used for specific vendor capabilities, greatly reducing set up time for DFM verification.

DFMStream is packed with Advanced Features:

  • Streams Driven Analysis
  • Hierarchical Analysis
  • Design Rule Compliance
  • Bare Board Analysis for Fabrication
  • Mask and Screen Analysis for Assembly
  • PCB Assembly Analysis
  • Design Delta Analysis
  • Error Charting
  • Design Analyzer
  • PCB CAD Crossprobing
  • Gerber and NC Editing and Optimization
  • Fast Assembly Panel Creation
  • and more...
