Ucamco is proud to announce the inclusion of an industrialized IPC-DPMX import in our upcoming Integr8tor and UcamX releases. We are now able to read input from IPC-DPMX, also known as IPC-2581 jobs in both software products. Over the past months, Ucamco has made great strides to industrialize the process and we are confident to say that everything has been field-tested extensively. In the testing process, it was found that even large files containing complicated data and describing the most complex printed circuit boards can be imported smoothly.
IPC-DPMX was developed by IPC and is used for transmitting information between a PCB designer and a manufacturing or assembly facility. It offers a standard to help companies ensure superior manufacturability and consistency.
Ucamco will evidently continue the development of the Gerber format, as demonstrated by the recent release of the Gerber X3 specification, which includes component information in Gerber data.
