Consona Corporation (Consona), a worldwide leader in providing customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services for companies of all sizes, today announced the general availability of Engenix Version 3.3.0 – Cimnet Systems’ engineering automation software for printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing.

Engenix v3.3.0 provides PCB manufacturers with tools for stack-up and traveler automation, job management, communication and collaboration. It integrates CAM, shop floor, and business data, enabling the engineering team to quickly engineer PCBs consistently and accurately. Version 3.3.0 includes several new features which center on improving the specific requirements of Rigid-Flex circuits, including:

  •     A fully featured stack-up editor allowing users to define both the final customer product as well as the manufacturing details required for Rigid-Flex PCB’s.
  •     Unlimited flex-connector and secondary rigid sections can be added to accommodate the most complex designs.
  •     Impedance calculations automatically take into account material changes in the flex sections for transmission lines originating the primary rigid section.
  •     Optional 3D graphics are also available for rigid and flex type boards.

Building on Cimnet Systems’ vision to better support and enhance all types of PCB production, the next release, Engenix Version 3.4.0, will feature improvements to meet the specific requirements of Flex circuit engineering.

“Our recent focus has been on enhancing capabilities for complex HDI structures for rigid boards and even though our solutions were able to support Rigid-Flex and Flex PCBs, we’ve continued to listen to our customers and add key features to better meet their requirements,” said Iain Wilson, product manager, Consona. “We’re excited to say that with the release of v3.3.0 and the upcoming release of v3.4, we’ll have leading solutions for all three major types of PCB.”

The new PCB Panelizer product released earlier this year further improves Flex and Rigid-Flex capabilities offered by Cimnet Systems. . The new product, automates the nesting of boards, arrays and coupons for maximum panel utilization and manufacturability for both rectangular and complex shapes – ideal for Flex, and Rigid-Flex boards. Even multiple parts on a panel can be accommodated.

The Engenix solution combines with Cimnet Systems’ PCB Quote solution and PCB Panelizer to form a comprehensive Pre-Production Suite, which is specifically designed to deliver continuous improvement, cost savings and increased customer satisfaction throughout PCB pre-production processes. This solution suite fully integrates with Cimnet Systems’ Paradigm ERP solution and other leading ERP products to create a complete PCB business solution that enhances and automates process from quote to ship.
