Altium Templates ( PcbDoc) help to check your layout against the Eurocircuits technology classification ( 6C and 8D). This way you can easily define which Eurocircuits service is most suited for you board, and avoid documentation problems after you place your order.
There are 8 PcbDoc”s :
Classification for PCB proto and Standard pool:
- Class 6C – 2 layer – 1.55 mm
- Class 6C – 4 layer – 1.55 mm
- Class 6C – 6 layer – 1.55 mm
- Class 6C – 8 layer – 1.55 mm
Classification for Tech pool:
- Class 8D – 2 layer – 1.55 mm
- Class 8D – 4 layer – 1.55 mm
- Class 8D – 6 layer – 1.55 mm
- Class 8D – 8 layer – 1.55 mm
- FindAnnularRing_6C.pas:Altium Designer Rule script for checking onPattern Class 6C,
- FindAnnularRing_8D.pas:Altium Designer Rule script for checking onPattern Class 8D,
How to use this package:
- Select the required Pattern / Drill class (6C of 8D) and number of layers.
- Put a copy of the PcbDoc in your Altium Designer project folder (*.PcbPrj).
- Put a copy of the script (6C or 8D) in your project folder.
- The minimum annular ring rule “Minimum-IAR” is set to the IAR value of the Pattern class. This value is larger than the OAR. When “Top-Middle-Bottom” or “Full stack” is used it is possible to change the OAR to the (smaller) values of the Pattern Class.
- Altium Designer checks the minimal annular ring value when “Top-Middle-Bottom” or “Full stack” is used the OAR can be set smaller than the IAR. The“FindAnnularRing_XX.pas” script is capable to check the annular ring for OAR and IAR on the appropriate values for PTH <= 0.45mm (PHD is finished hole size + 100µm). For PTH > 0.45mm is PHD 150µm bigger than the finished hole size.
