PCB Layout CAD : Running PollEx DFM

Run PollEx DFM (Manufacturing Check)

With Quadcept, it is possible to check manufacturing rules by directly collaborating with outside software PollEx DFM (Design for Manufacturability).
PCB design data is transferred directly to PollEx, so it is possible to check design data as is before manufacturing, which greatly reduces the drawing check time.

To execute this, "PollEx" by Polliwog is required.

It is necessary to configure items for checking design data from the "PollEx" side, and to create a "DFMI" file.

Verifiable Items

- Clearance between Components in Different Layers
- Clinch Spacing
- Existence of Polarity Symbols
- Minimum Clearance between Pads
- DIP Annular Ring Thickness
- Pair Component Distance Angle
- Existence of Pin Count Marks
- Component Placement Compatible with Solder Direction
- Placement of Prohibited Components
- Check for Usage of Standard Components
- Ground Wall
- Board Outline Reference
- Existence of Fiducial Mark
etc.

 

Menu Execution Method

The following is the method for executing menus for PollEx DFM.

About Synchro Collaboration

When direct collaboration is executed on the same computer and a result from the DFM Check executed by the PollEx is clicked, on the Quadcept side, the screen pans to the relevant location, and it is highlighted.

When [Run DFM] is executed, "PollEx" starts, and a Rule Check will be executed for items set in the DFMI file.

When a check result on the PollEx side is selected, on the Quadcept side, the screen pans to the relevant location, and it is highlighted.

* Quadcept/PollEx are both activated.
  ***********

* Compatible versions for drawing check collaboration are Quadcept v8.2.0 or later and PollEx-PCB v6.0 (Jul-3-2015) or later. ?
