GC-PowerStation - Full CAM Package for PCB Fabrication Description:

Design For Manufacturability And Yield Enhancement.

The Design for Manufacturability (DFM) engine searches for fabrication issues and discovers areas where yields may be increased. GraphiCode's Contour Technology produces fast and accurate results for the most complex board designs, including composite data.

GC-PowerStation enhances PCB yield by using a series of built-in intelligent features. A prime example concerns solder masks. A solder mask may easily be created through editing commands but GC-PowerStation goes beyond the basics to improve the quality of the solder mask.

Using the "Enhance Solder Mask" function, GC-PowerStation prevents solder bridging by increasing masks in areas where pads are so close to nearby tracks that their copper would be exposed with specified mask tolerances. "Enhance Solder Mask" and other automated features effortlessly bring new quality and enhanced yield to the fabrication process.

FLEXIBILITY

GC-PowerStation couples simplicity with flexibility. The user interface is customizable-presenting the information you need exactly where you want to see it. Multiple views, customize hotkeys, and toolbars allow full user control over the interface. You can even create new functionality with GraphiCode's GC-BASIC programming language.

NETLIST EXTRACTION

GC-PowerStation excels at netlist extraction and test point selection. Applying GraphiCode's proprietary Contour Technology, GC-PowerStation succeeds where other CAM Software falters. Using GC-PowerStation, composite layers, sketched data, and multiple ground planes may be extracted with ease. Netlist output files include IPC-D-350 and IPC-D-356(A) along with direct machine formats.

VALUE

GC-PowerStation delivers performance and features unmatched in the industry. It also reduces manufacturing production expenses. GC-PowerStation runs on the desktop PC platform, eliminating the need to run expensive and difficult to use workstations. And GC-PowerStation's off-line verification capabilities ensure efficient workflow to manufacturing equipment.

PERFORMANCE

Engineered to process large files, GC-PowerStation dramatically increases turnaround on even the most complex jobs. GC-PowerStation also works smarter. A powerful scripting capability automates repetitive tasks and standard operations to bring new efficiencies to your process.
