Robust editing allows quick panelization including venting, thieving and coupons
ODB++  import option
DFM Analysis
With over 60 DFM checks, finding issues  with signal layers, soldermasks, silkscreen, and plane layers is  thorough and accurate. More powerful than simple pass/fail results, many  checks distinguish between critical and potential errors. Parameters  can be saved for repeat use thus cutting down setup times. Automatic  fixing of certain errors can occur with built-in verification to ensure  new errors are not created. Multiple DFM Analysis results can be stored  and analysis can be performed on partial areas of the board as required.
Graphical Netlist Compare
Comparison of a Gerber extracted netlist  and an IPC-D-356 netlist can be performed. Differences are categorized  by Open, Short, Missing or Extra and graphically highlighted on screen. A  common user interface is  used to display DFM errors and Netlist  Comparison errors to aid usability. Netlist comparison can also occur  between two Gerber netlists allowing a sanity check of data before and  after editing.
Advanced Editing Tools
Pad Shaving, Soldermask Adjustments and  Silkscreen Clipping are just some of the advanced editing tools included  as standard. The powerful editing tools allow yield enhancement to be  performed quickly and effectively. Contour based netlist extraction is  fast and accurate - providing Bare Board Test information including  accessibility.
