AWS is using the newly available V 2.04 Speedplacer software at its Cemgraft location to simplify the process of populating PCBs by hand.

By doing this, the company hopes to reduce time, eliminate errors and cut the cost of producing prototype and low-volume boards.

Speedplacer uses Gerber files, a BOM and X-Y co-ordinates to produce a sequential step-by-step visual guide for the operative, removing the need to mark up drawings, reducing time wasted on customer documentation and eliminating paperwork at the workstation.

An original CAD package generated IPC-D-356 netlist file can be used if available to add pin and net information, speeding up inspection and fault-finding.
