January, 2015 — GraphiCode, a global provider of cost-effective, superior software innovations for electronics manufacturing, today announces the release of version 15.1 of its full product suite – GC-PowerPlatform.
Integrated Stencil Creation
This function gathers common stencil editing functions in one easy to access location. The function takes the pads from a selected layer (usually a Solderpaste layer) and creates two copies (a Footprint layer and a Stencil Created layer) in order to preserve the original data.
The function also creates a user-defined dialog containing various editing tools for modifying the pads as per customer requirement. Functions currently included Scale, HomePlate creation, and C-Pad creation. However, possibly the most useful function is the newly added ability to save a database of stencil modifications and re-use those patterns between jobs.
ODB++ Package Outline
If present, the Package outline is displayed from the ODB++ database. The outline is displayed on a separate layer within the corresponding Part Physical layer. The package outline in created as a custom pad so that the center of the outline can easily be found. If the trace segments are required then the pad can be exploded using the Explode Custom Pad function.
