1. What is PCB CAM
CAM is Computer-Aided Manufacturing, which is the automation of computer-controlled machines and software in manufacturing. Before the right PCB service provider. Thankfully, during the PCB manufacturing process, the manufacturer receives files from the designer in various formats. These files contain mainly the following information; wire cladding, component insertion, routing, and many other design details of the desired PCB.
The CAM software analyzes these files and identifies their format. After that, it identifies the file format, drilling data, and artwork layers. So, it checks and is used to ensure that the manufacturer builds the board according to its original design when it receives the PCB artwork. One reason is to see that it is one of the positive factors of the system. Upon analysis, the project stops when a file is missing and a lot of DRC is required. Design rule checks verify that a design meets the standards set for manufacturing.
PCBs have entirely evolved from wooden sheets to complex green circuit boards. They were earlier only related to computers, and now with microelectronics, everything is submerged in PCBs. In addition, PCBs are ubiquitous in industrial machineries such as motor controllers or industrial load testers. Even the lighting in some places also uses PCBs.
Rocket PCB. Our engineering team supports CAM verification and modifications on the Gerber data before releasing them for the fabrication. Gerber data is thoroughly verified to make it error free so that time and cost expenses can be reduced for the rework and better PCB quality and functionality can be achieved.
• DFM of PCB
