DownStream's solutions are the defacto standard for engineering professionals to post process PCB designs. Our tools help to create and distribute all the deliverables required for a complete PCB manufacturing and assembly release package.

CAM350 is the industry de facto standard for verification, optimization and output generation to efficiently and effectively drive PCB fabrication and part of the truly integrated manufacturing data preparation solution from DownStream Technologies.

Today's complex PCB designs require comprehensive verification before they are transferred to the PCB fabricator to ensure a successful and timely manufacture of bare boards. Problems arising during PCB fabrication can drastically impact product schedules, result in costly design re-spins, and require modifications to the design that might compromise the design's integrity and intent. Inspecting, preparing and validating the PCB design prior to release to manufacturing will result in a significant increase in efficiency, less risk of design re-spin, and, most importantly, successful electronic products, built faster, at less cost.

3D visualization and documentation of manufacturing data helps to minimize manufacturing defects and delays in production. DFMStream is a comprehensive, yet easy-to-use tool suite designed to help engineers and designers analyze, verify and optimize a PCB design for successful manufacturing. It checks design and manufacturing rules on PCB design databases, Gerber and NC data any time during the PCB design cycle. DFMStream also fosters collaboration between engineer/designer and fabricator.

BluePrint-PCB works your PCB CAD system and/or CAM350 to help you quickly produce comprehensive electronic drawings to drive PCB fabrication, assembly and inspection processes.
