Macaos EnterpriseMacaos Enterprise
Macaos Enterprise is a cloud-based system for working with printed circuit boards in real world applications and simplifying your PCB acquisition process. Whether you are part of a large organization or just a service provider in the supply chain, Macaos Enterprise will help you get the job done.
Macaos Enterprise is not a design tool for PCBs. There are many good tools available for designing a single PCB. However, most such tools stop there. You get an excellent PCB design converted to an output format (such as Gerber and drill files) which may then be sent to a fabricator.
However, a single bare printed circuit board is not a finished product. Modern electronics manufacturing makes use of automated assembly lines for component placement, soldering, depanelization, test and more. The various modules in Macaos Enterprise allow you to rapidly generate the data and tooling necessary for these assembly steps. Macaos Enterprise also eases the process of purchasing PCBs.
Macaos Enterprise is available for free download.
Macaos Enterprise includes the following tools and modules:
- Product Browser
View and organize your products. The graphic viewer allows you to view, inspect and measure any detail in the product. The browser also lists key product specifications, fabrication history and order history.
Import a PCB product from Gerber/Drill or ODB++ data (and Pick&Place data if available). Select or define stackup, specify mask colors and other parameters, and then publish to the Product Browser.
Step up a PCB board to an array (panel) suitable for assembly in a matter of seconds. Place break-off tabs automatically, or exactly as you wish. Add fiducial marks, tooling holes, bad marks, copper fill, bar codes, text, and test coupons to the panel frame.
- Solder Paste Stencil
Create a solder paste stencil product, from an existing PCB product or a gerber file. Choose a stencil frame or upload your own. Specify adjustments to pad openings, split or modify the shape of openings, define stepped (thinner) regions, add text and more.
- Assembly Mask
Add assembly mask data (such as peel-off, glue or solder paste) to an existing PCB or panel without needing to go back to the original CAD Layout system.
- Assembly Data
Add or edit the Pick and Place (PnP) and Bill of Materials (BOM) data for a PCB. Send a Request for Quotation (RFQ) to participating Electronics Manufacturing Service (EMS) providers.
- Pallet creation
Design a wave solder pallet or selective wave solder pallet. You only need to define pallet dimensions and parameters and place board fasteners. For a selective wave solder pallet simply draw the solder openings and component pockets. The rest is calculated automatically.
Generate a milling file (in G-code) for removing break-off tabs from a panel. Design a fixture to hold all boards in place during tab removal.
- Test fixture
Design a "Bed of Nails" test fixture for a PCB. Click on holes or pads to place guide pins or test pins. Test jigs and test pins for a complete in-circuit test setup are available for purchase from the Test accessories folder.
- Online Prices and Ordering
Instant online quotations are available for most products. Select a price and add to the shopping basket to place an order.
- Technical Documentation
Generate technical drawings in PDF format.
- Mechanical Parts
Upload a 3D object and purchase it in plastic or aluminum.
- Connectors, Accessories and Machines
Purchase connectors, test jigs and accessories, ESD accessories, stencil stretching frames, milling machines, laser engraving machines, and more.
- Collaboration (Product Sharing)
The product sharing features of Macaos Enterprise allow a board owner to share the board with an EMS supplier. The EMS supplier can then panelize the board, add assembly mask data, and create solder paste stencils optimized for their own assembly processes, either for quotation purposes or to place an order for production.
We are constantly working to improve and expand Macaos Enterprise. Expanded component management, transport pallet designer, laser engraving of serial numbers, and output to solder paste printers are among the features we have under development. Your input to our development process is welcome. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Product BrowserProduct Browser
With Macaos Enterprise you can easily manage information about your PCBs and related products. Product information, production data, order and fabrication history, etc. is at your fingertips.
The Product Browser allows you to browse all of your products for product specifications, fabrication history, order history, etc. Products may be sorted into customizable project folders for easy searching. You can also put products "on hold" to temporarily disable them.
The Product Viewer allows you to view and inspect the product's Gerber, drill and pick & place data in detail. Features include pan, zoom, measure and complete layer selection. Documentation files, including automatically generated stackup drawings and panel drawings, may be viewed or saved locally. You may also add additional documentation to the product, if necessary.
The print utility may be used to generate high quality technical drawings in PDF format. Layout drawings for each layer, stackup drawings and drill template drawings may be generated.
The Import Module is used to read Gerber and drill files or ODB++ data, as well as pick & place data and documentation, into the system and "package" the data into a PCB product. Each input file is automatically mapped to it's board layer, based on an AI-based filename analysis or by using pre-defined or customizable filename filters. A WYSIWYG viewer shows your board just as it will be interpreted by the manufacturer. Once the PCB has been "published" to the system it will appear in the Product Browser, ready for panelization and/or purchase.
When defining your board, you may choose from a large selection of pre-defined stackups, or define your own buildup. Either way, a high quality technical drawing of the stackup is automatically generated in PDF format.
The custom stackup editor supports flexible, flex-rigid and metal-based stackups. The most common material types (defined by IPC-4xxx slash sheets) are available for selection. If desired, you may query the CircuitData materials database when specifying dielectric materials for special needs. Your previously used stackups are also listed for re-use.
A unique feature of the import module is the ability to add symbols or fiducial marks to the component legend or solder mask layers. Available symbols include: Lead-free, CE-mark, WEEE, Recycle, ESD, RoHS, text, bar code, fiducial and the fabricator's UL-mark.
There is also a function to generate an IPC/JEDEC J-STD-609A compliant text string specifying the materials used in the PCB.
Macaos has developed an intuitive, yet flexible, technology for rapidly creating PCB panels.
The Panelization Module allows you to quickly step up a PCB board to an array (panel) suitable for assembly. The panel may be generated automatically from a script or you may specify panel parameters and add features to the panel frame as desired. Downloadable scripts from EMS providers may be used or modified to meet your own needs.
You can easily add features to the panel, such as:
- Break-off tabs: corner tabs or edge tabs with or without mousebite holes
- Fiducial marks: round, square or cross, placed relative to panel or board corners or centers
- Tooling holes or slots, placed relative to panel corners or center
- Break-off holes
- Bad marks
- Copper fill in frame and between boards
- Bar code, Code 128B or Datamatrix
- Annotation field
- Peel-off, glue or other assembly mask data
- Registration control coupon
- Impedance test coupon (IPC-2221B type Z)
Most of these features may be specified in a panel script, so that they are automatically added to any panel that you create using that script.
A WYSIWYG viewer shows your panel just as it will be interpreted by the manufacturer. A high-quality technical drawing of the panel in PDF format is automatically generated when the panel is saved.
Pick and place data (if included in the board product) is stepped together with the boards. Once the panel product is published, right-click on a Pick&Place layer to export pick and place data for the panel.
Panels that combine several different products are also supported. Start by selecting a single product in the product browser and open the panelization module.
Open the product chooser with the Configure|Product chooser command. The product chooser lists all products that are compatible (stackup, finish, mask colors) with the first product. You may then add products to the panel by dragging them into the panel.A multi-product panel may be delivered either as a panel or as individual boards. If individual boards is selected then there will be no panel frame or break-off tabs.
Solder Paste StencilSolder Paste Stencil
The Stencil Product Creator Module allows you to quickly define a solder paste stencil for your PCB.
Using the copper layer and paste mask layer data from the PCB, you can do the following:
- Select a frame from among pre-defined or uploaded frame data
- Adjust all opening sizes by a percentage of area
- Adjust the corner rounding of all openings
- Fine tune individual opening sizes to correct for process issues
- Mark fiducials for etching (rather than cutting)
- Add text
- Place top and bottom openings side by side on the same stencil
- Split a large opening into an array of smaller openings
- Define regions of the stencil to be built up or etched down to a different thickness
All opening size adjustments are defined as a percentage of the copper pad area (when copper data is available). The WYSIWYG viewer lets you see how your adjusted openings compare to the copper pads.
A frame manager and editor allows you to upload frames or build new frames based on pre-defined templates. Frames may be defined with variable texts (company name, product number, etc) which automatically get substituted in the Stencil Product Creator.
Once a stencil product has been published, you can get prices and order the stencil in the same manner as for PCB products.
Assembly MasksAssembly Masks
Often, the necessary data for assembly masks is missing from the Gerber files created by the board designer. Especially in cases where assembly is being done by an EMS provider, this missing data can be a problem. It is the EMS provider who knows the processes and needs to specify the masks, but getting this information to the board designer early enough to be included in the design is usually not possible.
With this feature, the mask areas may be specified by the production engineer from within Macaos Enterprise. Mask areas may be specified either to fill a rectangle drawn by the user, or to fill all solder mask openings within a rectangle drawn by the user. The following masks may be defined:
- Peel-off mask (Blue mask)
- Paste mask
- Glue mask
- Hard gold
By adding paste mask data to the desired solder mask openings of a panel, it is possible to create a solder paste stencil when paste mask data was missing at the time the product was created. Although the solder mask openings are usually somewhat larger than the copper pads, this is easily corrected in the Stencil module, which adjusts openings relative to the original copper pad size (when available) rather than the specified paste mask pad size.
Assembly Data ManagerAssembly Data Manager
The Macaos Assembly Data Manager supports viewing and editing component assembly data for a PCB. You may also send a Request for Quotation (RFQ) for assembly to participating Electronics Manufacturing Service (EMS) providers.
Pick and place data
Pick and place (PnP) data is used by automatic component placement machines to place the correct component, with the correct orientation at the correct position on a PCB prior to soldering. At the minimum, PnP data consists of a designator, x and y coordinates, a rotation and a description.
With the Macaos pick and place manager, you can:
- View and inspect PnP data imported together with Gerber files
- Import PnP data to the product
- Align PnP data with the PCB product data
- Select which components should be machine-placed
- Edit individual components (layer, rotation, designator, description)
- Add individual components
There is unfortunately no formal or de-facto standard format for PnP data. Macaos is able to automatically detect and read about 30 different formats, generated by the most common CAD system.
Bill of Materials data
A Bill of Materials (BOM) is a list of the components on a PCB. The BOM is used to select and purchase the correct components as well as to specify where each component should be placed on the printed circuit board.
Frequently, a BOM generated by a CAD system or inventory system may not contain enough information for a purchaser to accurately select the correct components.
The Macaos BOM screener can help to clarify things. It attempts to parse the information in the BOM, extracting relevant parameters (such as component type, value, voltage, tolerance, etc) into a structured spreadsheet. You may then easily add additional specifications for components which are underspecified.
In Macaos Enterprise, the BOM is checked against the Macaos component database, and where a match is found the data is added to the BOM. If multiple matches are found, you can select one of them as appropriate.
Graphical remarks may be added by drawing a circle around an area on the PCB, and then entering a text, which will be shown to the right of the circle. This can be useful for special instructions for specific components.
Request for quotation
You can send an RFQ for assembly to participating EMS providers. This makes the PCB data and assembly data visible in the EMS provider's Macaos Enterprise so that they can prepare their quotation without you needing send data by unsecure means (such as e-mail).
For more info about becoming an EMS provider listed in this module, click here.
Solder PalletsSolder Pallets
A wave solder pallet is a reliable and inexpensive fixture for soldering through-hole components. The pallet is typically made from a synthetic material, such as Durapol or Durostone®. Macaos supports the design of both full and selective wave solder pallets.
The Macaos Pallet Creation module allows you to easily and quickly design the following types of pallets:
A wave solder pallet exposes the entire solder side of the PCB to the solder wave. For panels, there is an opening for each board in the panel. This would typically be used to support small, thin or irregularly shaped PCBs as they travel through the wave soldering machine.
A selective wave solder pallet exposes only regions with plated through-hole (PTH) components to the solder wave, while protecting other regions from the solder wave. This would typically be used when soldering PTH components on a board which also has surface-mounted (SMT) components, gold fingers, ground planes, heat-sensitive or other areas needing protection on the solder side of the PCB.
Both styles of wave solder pallets have the same frame, with stiffener/solder-dam on all four edges of the top side, and rotary PCB fasteners. The bottom edge of the rail fingers is flush with the bottom side of the PCB. The leading and trailing edges, as well as all four corners, are chamfered.
In Macaos much of the pallet design is calculated automatically. You need only define the following:
outer dimensions and material parameters
placement of PCB fasteners
solder wave openings (selective wave solder pallets only)
component pockets (selective wave solder pallets only)
Depanelization is the process of removing individual boards from a panel, after the boards have been populated with components. Traditionally, boards have been depanelized by breaking or cutting the the break-off tabs which hold the panel together. However, the mechanical forces (particularly bending) which can take place may weaken or damage the solder joints of fine-pitch SMT components near the board edges. This problem can be mitigated by using a milling machine to remove the break-off tabs.
The Macaos Depanelizer module allows you to easily and quickly accomplish the two specific tasks required for depanelization by milling machine:
Generate a milling program for removing the break-off tabs from a panel. A milling program contains the numerical instructions for operating a CNC milling machine which removes the break-off tabs from the panel.
Design a fixture for holding the panel frame and boards in place during the milling process. The depanelization fixture holds the boards in place, so that they do not move or otherwise get damaged during the milling process. Macaos has developed an inexpensive and reliable fixture style for this purpose. The fixture uses registration “pedestals” and vacuum suction to hold the boards in place as they are loosened from the panel, as well as a suction nozzle to remove dust from the milling process.
Macaos has developed a simple and cost-effective jig for in-circuit testing. The test fixture module allows you to design a test fixture by simply clicking on the test points in your board, and assigning each pint with a pin type (and appropriate labels for a wiring list, if desired).
A "Bed of Nails" test fixture is a plate with an array of spring-loaded test pins (or Pogopins) which are mounted in the fixture so that they will make contact with desired test points on the PCB. In addition, a few guide pins are placed at mounting hole locations in order to properly align the PCB with the test pins. The PCB is placed on top of the pins and then pressed down so that the pins make good contact with the test points. Ideally, all test points should be accessible from the bottom side of the PCB.
The lower fixture of our standard test jig is a box with hinged top and bottom. It is delivered with holes drilled for the test pins, guide pins, connectors, etc. as specified in the test fixture module. Test pins and other accessories may be ordered together with the test jig and fixture, directly in Macaos Enterprise.
The standard jig is delivered with an upper fixture with slots that allow you to place press pins where appropriate. For boards with test points on both sides, it is possible to design an upper fixture with test pins.
Typically, test pins consist of two parts: 1) a receptacle which is mounted in the fixture plate and wired to a connector, and 2) a spring loaded pin which is inserted into the receptacle. The spring-loaded pins are available with a variety of different pin heads, which are chosen according to the type of test point contact to be made (via hole, solder pad, component pin, etc).
Online prices and orderingOnline prices and ordering
The Quotation Module gives you access to online price quotations from participating suppliers. Select multiple board quantities and delivery times in order to choose the quantity/delivery/price combination that suits your needs. Once you have selected your desired price, your order can be placed with just a few mouse clicks.
Suppliers participating in the Macaos Enterprise System have sales offices in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, which serve customers througout the European Economic Zone and elsewhere.
Note: If you are interested in participating as a supplier or reseller, you can join the Macaos Enterprise System.
Technical DocumentationTechnical Documentation
Macaos Enterprise can generate technical drawings in PDF format for your products. Three kinds documents can be generated. All drawings have an ISO standard title block with user-specified content.
Layout documentation set
A layout documentation set is a PDF file with several drawings, one drawing per page. The contents of the set are
- An overview of product properties
- A layout drawing for each layer in the product
- A stackup drawing (for PCB products)
- A drill template drawing for each drill layer in the product
A stackup drawing shows the dimensions and materials of the copper and dielectric layers of a PCB product. It also shows the depths of through, blind and buried holes, if any.
A panel drawing shows the placement of boards and frame objects in a panel.
Mechanical partsMechanical parts
The Mechanical Part Import Module is used to import a 3D mechanical part from an STL file.
The object dimensions are displayed. If necessary, click on one of the units buttons so that the dimensions are correct. The volume, weight and total surface area of the object are also displayed.
Select the desired material for the mechanical part. A selection of photopolymer or stereolithographic plastics are available for 3D printing. It is also possible to select aluminum (with a variety of finishes) for machining.
If a non-transparent plastic material is selected, then you may choose a paint color and finish.
Once dimensions and properties are correct, click on the Publish button to publish the product.
When publishing the mechanical part product, you will be asked to include a STEP file with the imported product. A STEP file gives more accurate machining information than an STL file, especially if the object contains many detailed curved surfaces. For machined aluminum parts, a STEP file must be included.
Macaos Enterprise needs an STL file to display and calculate the dimensions of a mechanical part. And for simpler parts, the STL file is sufficient for manufacture. However, best results are obtained by importing both files to the product.
Connectors, Accessories and MachinesConnectors, Accessories and Machines
While PCBs, stencils and test fixtures are products which may only be purchased by their owner (and partners), Macaos Enterprise also supports purchasing “ownerless” products. There are several categories of “ownerless” products:
- Global products are PCB products which may be purchased by anyone. These are typically kits for student projects.
- Connectors A wide variety of connectors styles are available, and each style has several parameter options. Use the Connector Chooser to browse and select a connector.
- ESD accessories are anti-static bags, tape, labels and related products.
- Machines are milling machines, laser engraving machines, label dispensers and more.
- Software is software licenses, maintenance agreements and related products.
- Stencil frames are stencil stretch frames and other stencil related accessories.
- Test accessories are test jigs, test pins and related products.
- Other off-the-shelf products are any off-the-shelf products not included in the preceding categories.
Off-the-shelf products may be purchased in much the same manner as PCB, stencil or fixture products.
In cases where an online price is not available, placing an order is in essence a Request for Quotation (RFQ). The sales office will get back to you with price and availability details and then await your confirmation before processing the order.
The Connector Chooser is used to browse the catalog of available connectors and select a connector for purchase.
Selecting a connector family from the category tree loads its description and options, and displays a drawing and/or photograph of the connector family. You may then select the specific parameters, such as pin count or contact plating, of the desired connector. Clicking on the purchase button loads the selected connector into the Quotation module.
Macaos Enterprise is designed for collaboration. You can share your products with your design bureau, fabricator, EMS, purchaser, etc so that each partner has access to the data they need without compromising product security.
For example, a product might go forward like this:
- When the design bureau finishes the board layout, they load the Gerber, drill and pick & place data, together with drawings and other documentation, into the Import Module.
- Once the product has been specified in the Import Module, the design bureau publishes the product, assigning ownership to the product's owner.
- The product owner locates the product in the Product Browser and clicks on the RFQ for Assembly button to generate RFQs for populated boards. This module automatically "shares" the product with participating EMS providers, and then asks them for a quote for a batch of populated boards. Alternatively, the product may be shared manually and any EMS provider may be directly contacted for a quotation.
- The EMS production engineer analyzes the board and adds assembly mask data (such as peel-off mask, glue mask, paste mask, etc) to the board product (or panel), as needed.
- The EMS panelizes the board as best suited to their own processes and uses the quotation module to estimate their cost for the bare boards. This, together with the product's pick & place data and BOM allows them to make a quotation.
- Once the EMS gets the order, they can order the panels and solder paste stencils via Macaos Enterprise.
- When the bare boards are finished, the fabricator uploads quality documentation and shipment tracking number, so that it is visible in the Product Browser.
- The EMS may use the Depanel module to generate a milling program for depanelization. They may also use the Test fixture module to design a test fixture for the populated boards.
- When the populated boards are finished, the EMS uploads quality documentation and shipment tracking number, so that it is visible in the Product Browser.
Macaos Enterprise has several levels of access and visibility, so that the product owner can control access to their data.

Macaos Enterprise 5.2
Create wave solder pallets
With this new module, you can quickly design a pallet for transporting a board or panel through a solder wave. Solder pallets are useful when working with small, thin or irregular boards, as well as with boards that have both PTH components and solder-side SMT components.
Two styles of pallets are supported:
- A wave solder pallet exposes the entire board to the solder wave.
- A selective wave solder pallet exposes only specified regions of the board to the solder wave.
Creating a selective wave solder pallet is easy:
- Select a material and thickness and specify component pocket depths.
- Place board fasteners at desired locations around the board.
- Draw "opening" outlines around the components to be soldered.
- Draw "pocket" outlines around the solder-side components that are covered by the pallet.
- Generate a milling file for the pallet.
All other elements of the pallet are calculated automatically. This includes edge rails, bottom side bevels, pallet floor, seal walls, etc.
Creating a wave solder pallet is even easier, since steps 3 and 4 above are unnecessary.
Note: Selective wave soldering requires some planning during board layout, in order to have sufficient clearance between wave-soldered components, and components which must be shielded from the solder wave.
PCB as test fixture
The Test Fixture Designer module has been expanded to allow creating a PCB test fixture.
Rather than using a sheet of fixture material as a holder for the test pins, it may sometimes be more useful to mount the test pins directly into a PCB.
For a standard test jig, choose Lower w/ PCB. For other jigs, choose Lower - flat and set the thickness to 3.2.
Use the Gerber button to export the fixture outline and holes to a Gerber file, which may then be imported to your CAD system for further design.
Import module improvements
PnP format specifier dialog box
When importing a Pick and Place file, if the file format is not automatically recognized, you can specify the format as necessary.
Mark holes as press-fit
It is now possible to mark holes as press-fit. This is done by right-clicking on the appropriate tool(s) in the drill tool list, and selecting Via protection/Press-fit|Press-fit.
Laser cutter tool size for flex boards
For flex boards, it is possible to choose Laser as a cutter diameter. Note: Laser is only suitable for outer and inner contours.
Drill files may be assigned to backdrill layers.

Macaos Enterprise 5.1 (January 2019)Macaos Enterprise 5.1 (January 2019)
New panel module features
Allow rout slots to cross scoring lines
Normally, rout slots end at scoring lines, in order to prevent notches in neighboring boards. This can lead to unwanted burrs or sharp corners at the routing/scoring interface. For symmetrical boards, the slot may cross the scoring line without entering the neighboring board.
When scoring is enabled, a padlock is shown. Click on the padlock to "unlock" the routing/scoring interface. When scoring is "unlocked" then the routing slots extend one radius beyond the scoring line. It is the user's responsibility to insure that any notches which may arise within neighboring boards are acceptable.
IPC-2221 Z-style Impedance test coupon
An impedance test coupon may easily be added to the margin of a panel. The user need only specify the signal style, layer and trace width (and spacing). The coupon is then automatically generated according to the specifications for a Z-style test coupon in IPC-2221.
A test coupon may contain up to 12 signals, but no more than two signals on a layer. Single-ended striplines and microstrips, edge-coupled differential striplines, and edge-coupled or broadside-couple microstrips are supported.
See the test coupons help page for more info.
Test accessory catalog
A catalog of test accessories has been added to the Test Fixture module. The catalog lists all of the test pins, guide pins, test jigs and other test accessories available for purchase through Macaos Enterprise. Double-click on a product to see product specifications and drawings or photos.
Support for CircuitData language
The CircuitData language is an open language for communicating PCB specifications, requirements and capabilities. Macaos Enterprise supports both reading and generating PCB product specifications in CircuitData JSON format.
A CircuitData file may be imported in the Buy module, allowing you to get prices for a product without having imported the Gerber/Drill files to Macaos Enterprise.
A CircuitData file may be exported by right-clicking on a PCB product and choosing Download|Download CircuitData.org data.
See www.circuitdata.org for more information about the CircuitData language.
Search for products by customer's requisition number
In the Extended Product Search module, it is now possible to search for a product by requisition number.
RFQ to external supplier
If enabled, you may choose to send an RFQ to an external supplier. An e-mail containing your RFQ and product specifications is automatically generated and sent to the supplier, who should then respond with their quotation by e-mail. Note: The external supplier must subscribe to the Macaos RFQ service and then enable this feature for your company.
Prices from Gerber Job file
A Gerber Job file (.gbrjob) may be imported in the Buy module, allowing you to get prices for a product without having imported the Gerber/Drill files to Macaos Enterprise.
Macaos Enterprise 5.0 (October 2018)Macaos Enterprise 5.0 (October 2018)
Depanelization is the process of removing individual boards from a panel, after the boards have been populated with components. Traditionally, boards have been depanelized by breaking or cutting the the break-off tabs which hold the panel together. However, the mechanical forces (particularly bending) which can take place may weaken or damage the solder joints of fine-pitch SMT components near the board edges. This problem can be mitigated by using a milling machine to remove the break-off tabs.
The Depanelizer module allows you to easily and quickly accomplish the two specific tasks required for depanelization by milling machine:
Stackups with odd number of layers
It is now possible to define a multi-layer custom buildup with an odd number of copper layers. For example, to define a 3-layer buildup, start by defining a 4-layer buildup. Then, choose Omit as the copper thickness of one of the inner layers.
It is now possible to specify the outer dimensions of a panel. In this way, you can adjust the width of the outer frame to give the desired total panel width/height. The outer dimensions may only be adjusted after the Panelize operation has been executed.
It is now possible to place tooling holes and fiducial marks relative to the center of the panel. When specifying the X/Y distances, you can choose whether the distance is measured from the panel corner or the panel center.
Look and feel
We've given all modules a new look. Modules now have a more consistent layout, with parameters at the top left, info/help text at the lower left, and the graphical viewer's layer list to the right. Button bars across the top of each module give quick access to the most commonly used functions.
The graphical viewer has several status panels along the bottom edge, which display useful information. Click on the view mode or units panel to change the view mode or unit of measure.
It is possible to change many more parameters of a PCB product when creating a variant of the product.
Minimum copper to unplated edge clearance
Pressing the N key (with the mouse over the graphic viewer module while viewing a PCB product), highlights and zooms to the objects having the minimum distance between a copper feature and an unplated hole or contour edge.
The connection manager has been expanded with Ping and DNS lookup functions, which can help when troubleshooting connection issues.
Macaos Enterprise 4.5 (February 2018)Macaos Enterprise 4.5 (February 2018)
Import module improvements
Expanded custom stackup definition
In this version we have expanded the custom stackup definition module to better support flex and rigid-flex boards.
Refresh file during import
If while preparing a product for import, you discover that a layer needs to be updated, you can replace that layer without having to restart the entire import process. Right-click on the file name and choose Replace file.
Note: It is not possible to replace the board/contour file. If this file needs to be updated then the entire product must be imported again.
Gerber job file
If the product you are importing contains a Gerber job file (*.gbrjob) then file linking information and product parameters will be extracted from the file.
Note: The final format of the Gerber job file has not yet been published. Some Gerber job files may not be compatible with the current draft specification. We will update this feature when the final format is published.
3D mechanical parts
Mechanical parts may now be specified with a selection of different materials and colors.
An STL file is required for viewing the imported mechanical part, and may be used for manufacture of simpler parts in thermoplastic materials.
For complex parts and parts with many curved surfaces, a STEP file should also be uploaded. You will be asked to upload the STEP file when you publish the part.
Several new automatic folders have been added to the product browser, for single PCBs, panels, solder paste stencils, test fixtures, and purchased off-the-shelf products. This should make it easier to locate products.
There are new browser options to hide empty or seldom used folders. Use the Tools|Options command to specify browser options.
Browser columns have been added for surface finish, solder mask color and legend color.
The icon in the "Buy" button shows the number of products in the shopping basket.
Macaos Enterprise 4.4 (May 2017)Macaos Enterprise 4.4 (May 2017)
Test fixture improvements
Macaos Standard Jig
This version supports the Macaos standard test jig. The Macaos standard test jig is designed to use a lower fixture box with an internal height of 70mm, giving room for connectors, wiring and electronics in an easily swappable module.
The Macaos standard jigs issupplied with an easily removable generic upper fixture allowing for flexible placement of press pins. An adjustment screw and magnet make it possible to finely adjust the spacing between upper and lower fixtures.
Static guide pin placement
It is now possible to place static (non-deflecting) guide pins at any location along the edge of the PCB. Static guide pins are useful for insuring proper placement of boards that do not have holes with an appropriate diameter for normal guide pins.
Specify or edit pin coordinates
It is now possible to modify the pin coordinates and/or hole diameter when placing a test pin. It is also possible to edit these values after a pin has been placed.
The coordinates and diameter of holes for guide/support/press pins may also be edited, by first right-clicking on the pin list and showing guide pins.

When creating a test fixture for the opposite side of an existing test fixture, the "other" test fixture may be viewed.
Note: The "other" fixture data is not saved with the new fixture.
Import 3D mechanical part in STL format.
Three-dimensional data for mechanical parts may be imported. Only STL format may be imported.
Once a file has been loaded, it may viewed from any angle. The part size, weight, volume and surface area are also displayed.
Note: STL is a unit-less format. By default, STL files are assumed to be in mm. Buttons are provided for converting to other units, if necessary.
After publishing, the part may be purchased through the Macaos Enterprise quotation module.
Annotation fields may be placed with an appropriate size for a text, bar code or 2-dimensional bar code. The define annotation field dialog box automatically calculates the size of a rectangle for the text or bar code for a specified number of digits or alphanumeric characters, including appropriate margins. This feature is useful for laser marking of date codes and/or serial numbers.
Annotation fields may be added to a new product in the Import module, or to a new panel in the Panel module. Annotation fields may also be added to an existing product with the Add Masks module.
Other new features
Prices in Connector Chooser
Where available, prices for connectors are shown in the Connector Chooser without needing to go to the Quotation Module. Prices update dynamically as connector properties are changed.
Cancel symbol placement
In the Import Module, when drawing or placing a symbol, right-click to cancel the operation.
Macaos Enterprise 4.3 (January 2017)Macaos Enterprise 4.3 (January 2017)
Test fixture improvements
When creating a test fixture, you may choose a fixture suitable for one of the Macaos test jigs, or specify your own dimensions.
The fixture designer supports two kinds of lower fixtures:
Macaos test jigs are supplied with a generic upper fixture allowing for flexible placement of press pins. In case of more specific needs, an upper fixture may be designed by selecting the lower fixture and then opening the test fixture designer.
Text may be placed on the fixture as desired. Text may be rotated in 90° increments.
When a box-style fixture is designed, then connector openings may be placed in the box walls as desired. Choose from pre-defined connector sizes, or specify your own opening. Connectors may be deleted by right-clicking on the list of connectors.
When placing pins you may choose a Macaos pin style, or specify your own hole diameter. Test pins must be placed on pads or holes. Guide pins must be placed on holes. Press pins and support pins may be placed at any location.
When placing test pins, if more than one pad/hole is selected, the pin will be placed at the center of the selected pads/holes.
The Z-axis visualizer shows vertical spacing of fixtures, PCB, guide pins and test pins, both with the test jig handle up and down. The drawing is dynamic, automatically updating in accordance with your specifications. Select from Macaos test/guide pin types or specify your own pin dimensions.
The drawings are stored with the test fixture data when you publish the fixture. Note: You must view both the up and down drawings in order for both to be stored.
Quotation and order placement improvements
The visual appearance of the quotation module has been changed somewhat. Check boxes for quantities and lead times have been moved to the left and top edges of the price grid.
An expanded price engine allows for more flexible calculation of prices for a wider variety of product types and parameters. Discounts are automatically calculated when certain products are ordered for delivery together.
If no price is available, it is still possible to place an order. You will be asked to confirm the price and delivery before the order is set in production.
Import module improvements
Depth routing: When specifying inner contours or track routing, a routing depth from the top or bottom side of the board may be specified.
Quick contour selection: Press the "Q" selection button to create a contour object from a selection rectangle. This is a quick way to define a rectangular outer contour in cases where only corner marks have been provided.
Select pads: Pads may be selected to define slots by holding down the Ctrl key while selecting. It is not possible to select pads and lines in the same operation.
Minimum features warning
When publishing, a warning will be generated if the estimated minimum features are less than the warning threshold. This threshold may be set in the Edit|Options dialog box.
Ferrite Top and Ferrite Bottom have been defined for use with sheets of ferrite material to be added to a PCB.
Proteus link filter
An additional link filter has been added for use with newer versions of Proteus.
Stencil module improvements
Adjust stencil opening size by height and/or width
Openings may be adjusted by a percentage of their height and/or width (instead of or in addition to adjusting them by a percentage of their area).
A number of additional stencil types (for licensed frame patterns, etc) have been added.
Options for polished hole walls, coating of hole walls and protecting/strengthening stencil edges have been added.
Other new features
Viewer: Rotation/mirror status
A status bar at the bottom of the product viewer indicates if the view has been rotated or mirrored.
Login: Manage multiple passwords
The File|Manage multiple passwords command opens a list of the login-name/password combinations you have used. Set a check mark by those you wish to delete and then click the OK button to delete them. Note: Multiple passwords are only stored if the File|Remember multiple passwords function is activated.
Macaos Enterprise 4.2 (June 2016)Macaos Enterprise 4.2 (June 2016)
"Bed of Nails" test fixture creation
A "bed of nails" test jig is used for in-circuit testing of a PCB with components. Typically, the jig consists of a bottom fixture with many spring-loaded test pins (pogopins) that are placed to make contact with test points on the PCB. An upper fixture presses the board onto the bed of nails so that all of the pins make good contact. A test program may then be run to confirm the operation of the PCB.
A test fixture is a plastic plate with holes drilled at each of the test point positions. Each test point hole will have a base (or receptacle) mounted in it. For each receptacle diameter, a spring-loaded pin head is inserted. You may choose from several different pin head styles, depending on the type of test point the pin will contact.
Test fixture creator module
Open a PCB product in the test fixture creator module and specify the parameters of the fixture plate. Then click on holes to place alignment pins, and click on holes or pads to place test pins. Once all pins have been placed, adjust the position of the press point and then center the PCB under the press point. The published test fixture product includes a drill file for the fixture plate and wiring list documentation.
Top side fixture
Ideally, all of the test points should be on the bottom side of the PCB. However, if necessary, a top side fixture may also be created. If a test fixture already exists for a PCB, then you may choose to use that fixture to specify the placement of the PCB in the new fixture.
The Test accessories folder in the product browser lists test jigs, test pins and related accessories available for purchase.
"Off the shelf" products
Macaos Enterprise now supports ordering off-the-shelf products, such as test accessories, stencil frames, connectors, software, etc.
These products may be purchased in the same manner as your PCB and stencil products.
Not all products have prices available online. In cases where the price is not available, you will be notified of price and availability and asked to confirm your purchase before the order will be processed.
Macaos Enterprise supports a wide variety of connector types, each with multiple options. The Connector Chooser module helps you to browse through the possibilities and select the appropriate connector.
Only connectors which your organization has previously purchased are listed in the Connectors folder, making it easier for you to find the same connector again.
Other new features
Product Browser: Folder icons
Standard folders now have icons, to make them easier to locate in the folder list.
Product Browser: Stackup number column
A stackup number column has been added to the product browser. Use the View|Show/Hide columns|Product stackup menu command to view this column.
Viewer: Lock cursor to axis
Press Alt+X or Alt-Y to lock the cursor position to the current X or Y coordinate. Press Esc to release the lock.
Move Macaos Enterprise to a new PC
Use the Tools|Move Macaos Enterprise to new PC command to copy all Macaos Enterprise program and settings files to a flash drive (or other storage location). These files may then be copied to the desired program folder on a new PC. When you start Macaos Enterprise on the new PC, the settings files will be relocated to the appropriate folder.

New viewer functions
Order placement improvements
Order packaging options
Two packaging options have been added to the Macaos system.
Allow text on notation layers to be placed within boards in a panel
When getting price quotes or placing orders for panels, the order quantity is always the number of panels. But it is now possible to specify number of boards, which will automatically be converted to number of panels in the price grid
Import module improvements
New product specifications:
New product statistics:
New viewer functions
Custom stackup definition
Alignment of pick and place files
When aligning pick and place files, only the visible layer(s) will be moved. In this way, it is possible to make separate adjustments for top and bottom sides.
Allow text on notation layers to be placed within boards in a panel
Add graphical remarks to a panel.
Show potential errors
The stencil creator checks for stencil openings that do not appear to be consistent with the original stencil data. This could be due to the original openings having been reduced by the board designer, or because the stencil creator was not able to locate the correct reference pad on the copper layer. If potential errors are found, they can be highlighted for inspection.
Automatic fiducial detection
If the stencil data contains objects that appear to be fiducials, these are automatically detected and can be easily marked as fiducial or deleted. The same is true for stencil fiducials in a panel frame defined in the panel module.
Edit/split rotated shapes
The pad shape editor now works on shapes with any rotation factor.
Transfer objects from any layer
It is possible to copy objects from any layer to a stencil layer.
Assembly Data Manager
The Quick Help button opens a web page with step-by-step guidelines for generating an RFQ for Assembly.
Bill of Materials (BOM)
Before processing, a hint window reminds the user to specify column headers.
After processing, the rows of the output BOM are green if a single match is found, or yellow if multiple product matches are found.
Pick and Place Data Export
(Available only in Pro version for participating EMS providers)
Specify column order, coordinate units and separator character when exporting PnP data. May include part number and package footprint from BOM.
Macaos Enterprise 4.0 (July 2014)Macaos Enterprise 4.0 (July 2014)
Assembly Data Manager
The new Assembly Data Manager Module allows you and your partners to work with component purchasing and placement data for a PCB. Once suitable Pick and Place data and a Bill of Materials have been provided, then it is possible to send a request for quotation to the Electronics Manufacturing Services providers of your choice. You may also create and modify graphical remarks for a product.
Pick and Place Data (PnP)
PnP data specifies the designator, location and rotation of components that will be automatically placed for (usually) reflow solderinig. There are, unfortunately, a multitude of different PnP data formats. Macaos Enterprise is able to read more than a dozen of these formats. (See the user manual for details about the most common formats supported.)
With the Assembly Data Manager, you can do the following:
Bill of Materials (BOM)
A BOM is a list of the components that are to be used with the printed circuit board. The BOM is used to select and purchase the correct components as well as to specify where each component should be placed on the printed circuit board.
In many cases, a BOM contains component descriptions that require some interpretation by the purchaser, due to inconsistent or incomplete specifications. The Assembly Data Manager attempts to improve the usability of the BOM by applying a number of parameter recognition techniques and attempting to match components in the user's BOM to a database of known components.
The procedure is as follows:
Graphical remarks may be added to any product. Existing graphical remarks may be deleted or replaced, if desired.
A remark may be created as follows:
To delete a remark, click on the Delete button and draw a selection rectangle around the entire remark.
If you need to change the text of a remark, you can click on the Edit button and change a single line of text at a time. Note: This can only be done with remarks created during the current session. For older remarks, you must delete and re-create the remark.
Request for Quotation (RFQ)
Once you have processed your PnP data and BOM, you can send a Request for Quotation (RFQ) to an Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider. The RFQ module in the Assembly Data Manager provides a simple checklist for creating an RFQ. Once you send an RFQ, the EMS provider will be notified that all of the data they need is available to them in Macaos Enterprise.
The module for splitting a large stencil opening into an array of smaller openings has been improved. It is now possible to choose between several split patterns or replacement opening shapes. You have full control over the size and shape of the new opening(s), as well as statistics to indicate how the change will affect total solder delivery.
Although this feature is primarily intended for working with large (heat sink) openings, it may be used to modify the shape of any opening in the stencil.
Highlight large pads
This feature allows you to easily locate stencil openings whose height and width are larger than the size you specify. This way you can quickly find opening that should be split.
Place board data relative to frame edge or frame center
It is now possible to specify the position of the board relative to the edge of the stencil frame, or relative to the center of the frame. Top and bottom side data may be offset horizontally or vertically, as desired.
Mirror bottom side data
Bottom side data is automatically mirrored, so that the squeegee side of the stencil will always be the top side of the stencil.
Import module improvements
Support for up to 30 copper layers
Macaos Enterprise now supports boards with up to 30 copper layers. This is an increase from the previous limit of 22 copper layers.
Full support for the latest Extended Gerber format (Gerber X2)
A new version of the Extended Gerber file format was released in the spring of 2014. This version adds a structure for identifying the file format version, board layer or function of the file, and classes of features within the file. Macaos Enterprise fully supports reading and interpreting these extensions.
Support for Pick and Place files generated by Cadstar
Pick and place files generated by Cadstar may now be imported, either in the Import Module or in the Assembly Data Manager.
Place tabs in line
When placing break-off tabs on a panel, if you click and drag the mouse then a horizontal or vertical line is shown. When you release the mouse, a break-off tab will be placed at each point where the line crosses a board edge.
Panel drawing improvements
A table in the upper left corner of the panel drawing specifies the size of fiducials and bad marks. For a single-product panel, this table also specifies the X and Y step distance of the boards in the panel.
Product chooser improvements for multi-product panels
When working with multi-product panels, the product chooser now displays the number of boards in the panel for each product in the list. You can also right-click on a product to view the product and its specifications. The product list now includes a filter function (at the bottom of the list) to aid in locating products.
Macaos Enterprise 3.8 (December 2013)Macaos Enterprise 3.8 (December 2013)
Import module improvements
Place a text string on the PCB
A text string may be placed on a notation layer of the PCB as follows:
Add IPC/JEDEC J-STD-609A compliant marking to the PCB
The IPC/JEDEC J-STD-609A stanard defines how PCBs should be marked to identify the the presence (or absence) of lead and/or other attributes in a PCB or PCB assembly. The import module includes a simple dialog box where you can create a compliant text string and add it to a PCB by answering up to 6 questions about the laminate material, surface finish and (optionally) the required assembly processes. Once the text string has been generated, it may be placed at any location on the notation layer of the PCB.
While in Add text mode, click on the J-STD-609A button to open the dialog box. Select the appropriate parameters for the text string, and then click OK. Place the text string as described above.
Add remarks to the PCB graphically
You can add remarks to a PCB at a specific location. This is useful when a remark is tied to some feature or location of the PCB. A remark may be created as follows:
Remarks are added to the Remarks layer. A circle will be drawn around the selected feature(s) and the remark text placed to the right of the circle.
Via protection (plugging, filling, etc)
All holes with a specific drill tool may be specified for via protection. To do this, right-click on the tool in the tool list (of the Drill tools tab) and choose the desired via protection type from the Via protection submenu. A new layer will be created indicating the via holes to be protected.
Create contour segments graphically
When defining an outer or inner contour, the contour must be defined as a closed polygon. If there are missing segments, these can by drawn. This may be done as follows:
View endpoints of highlighted segments when creating contour
When selecting segments for a contour, the Show endpoints of highlighted segments causes the highlighted segments to be drawn with thin lines and arrowheads. This is useful when trying to see where a gap or overlap exists that prevents the selected segments from being recognized as a closed polygon.
Minimum track width and minimum annular ring are estimated by performing a simple analysis of the imported copper and drill layer data. Minimum clearance is estimated to be the same as the minimum track width. These estimates will be correct in most cases, but some CAD systems generate their trace and/or pad data in a manner that is too complex and time-consuming for the rapid analysis performed by the Import module.
If you know that one or more of the estimated values are incorrect, you should enter the correct values as necessary.
Import of ODB++ jobs
The import module now includes limited support for importing PCB jobs in ODB++ format. An ODB++ job may be imported as a .zip, .gzip, .tgz or .tar archive. When opening an ODB++ project, the layers, outer contour and drill tools are automatically imported and linked. The layers in from the ODB++ project are listed in the ODB++ Layers tab.
If a layer has been linked incorrectly, right-click to link it to a different layer. If the board has inner contours, track routing or scoring, then these must be specified in the normal manner. The stackup, finish and mask colors must also be specified.
If the ODB++ project contains multiple steps, you must choose which step to open. In most cases, one step will be the board and another step will be a panel containing the board. If you are unsure which step to open, choose any step. After viewing the step, you can reopen the file to view a different step, if necessary. The import module has some limitations when working with panelized steps, so we recommend importing the board step and using the Panelization module to create your panel.
Note: Import of ODB++ files is a new technology in the Import module. It has not yet been widely tested by Macaos. Please inspect your board carefully before publishing. If you encounter problems, you can help us improve the ODB++ engine by using the Help|Send problem report command to send us your files together with a description of the problem.
Import of HPGL files
The Import Module has limited support for plotter files in HP-GL format. HP-GL files may be included in a product for documentation purposes only.
Due to the nature of the HP-GL format it is not possible to reliably detect an HP-GL file without parsing the entire file. Therefore, the Import Module detects HP-GL files as Text (or Other, if the file contains plotter setup escape sequences).
To view an HP-GL file, right-click on the file name and choose Change file type|HP-GL. The file will be displayed in the viewer. To include the file in a product, link the file to a User layer. It is not possible to link an HP-GL file to any other layer.
Align pick and place files with Gerber data
If the coordinate origin of pick and place data is different from that of the Gerber data, the offset can be aligned in the same manner as when aligning drill data with Gerber data.
Flip board in panel
An individual board in a panel may be flipped upside-down. When a board is flipped, it is mirrored and all of its layers are swapped from top to bottom (and vice versa). This is useful when creating a panel where it is desirable to use the same solder paste stencil for both sides of the panel, or when necessary to improve the copper balance of the panel.
To flip a board, press Shift+Space while the mouse cursor is above the board to be flipped. (The board does not need to be selected.
Clear zone for fiducials
The clear zone around a fiducial mark may be specified as the diameter or width of a circle or square (depending on the soldermask shape). When copper fill is selected for outer layers, then the copper fill will be removed from the clear zone of each fiducial.
Pull scoring line back from panel edges
Scoring lines extend normally from one edge of a panel to the opposite edge. Individual scoring lines may be pulled back from the outside panel edge to the inside edge of the panel frame by holding the mouse cursor over the end of the scoring line and pressing Ctrl+V. Note: Manufacturing a panel with this feature requires Jump Scoring. Not all manufacturers are able to deliver panels with Jump Scoring.
Copper fill on inner layers
Copper fill on inner layers is now generated as a pattern of 5mm diameter dots rather than as solid copper..
Product number layer for multi-product panels
When working with multi-product panels, an additional Product number layer shows the placement and product number of each board in the panel. This layer is for documentation purposes only and may not be exported as a manufacturing layer.
Define reduced thickness region based on objects from any layer
When defining a reduced thickness region based on selected objects, the objects may be selected from any layer. The reduced thickness region may either be a rectangle surrounding the selected objects, or may follow the shape(s) of the selected objects plus an "oversize" dimension.
View from below
Press the M key to toggle the view between view from above and view from below. When viewed from below, the board is mirrored and only the bottom side layers are visible. This is useful if you wish to see what the bottom side of the product will look like.
Press the R key to toggle the view between unrotated and rotated by 90 degrees. This is useful when viewing a tall, narrow board to make it fit better into the available screen space.
Press Ctrl+V to copy the product viewer image to the clipboard. Press Ctrl+Shift+V to save the product viewer image as a file in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format.
Press Ctrl+Alt and click on a drill hole to display a list of hole and pad diameters.
Recently published folder
A new standard folder has been added to the product browser. The Recently published folder lists all products which have been published within the past month.
Filter order history and statistics
The order history viewer, accessible with the Tools|Order history menu command, may be filtered to show statistics for a single product or for a selected time frame.
Upload certification documents
If you wish, you may upload documentation about yourself to the server. Typically, this would be done by a PCB designer who wishes to attach their professional certificates (such as an IPC CID+ certificate) to the products which they have designed. Your uploaded documents may be viewed when viewing the product history for any product that you have published.
To upload a document, choose the Tools|Upload certification document menu command, and select the file you wish to upload. You may upload more than one file (but only one at a time).
Macaos Enterprise 3.7 (March 2013)Macaos Enterprise 3.7 (March 2013)
Product browser improvements
Modify product specifications
If a product has not yet been purchased, then some product specifications may be modified. Modifiable specifications include: Name, Article no., Description, Stackup, Solder mask and Legend color(s), and Surface finish.
Create product variant
It may sometimes be useful to create a copy of a product with a different stackup, surface finish or color. The variant product is a copy of the original product, where any of the following specifications may be changed: Name, Article no., Description, Stackup, Solder mask and Legend color(s), and Surface finish.
Put products "on hold"
At times, it may be desirable to block a product from use. This can be done by putting the product "on hold." An "on hold" product is marked with a red and white triangle icon and listed in the On hold folder. It may not be panelized, purchased or used to make a stencil. To put a product "on hold", right click on the product and choose Put product "on hold." To release an "on hold" product, right-click and choose Remove from "on hold."
Hide seldom used folders
Seldom used folders may be hidden from the folders list by right-clicking and choosing Hide folder. Hidden folders may be viewed with the View|Show hidden folders menu command. When hidden folders are visible, their text is gray rather than black. Right-click on a hidden folder and choose Show folder to restore it to normal visibility.
Expanded print functionality
The print button now allows you to choose between printing a layout documentation set, a stackup drawing or a panel drawing (if available).
Import product from Macaos Gallery
Use the Tools|Import product from Macaos Gallery menu command to import a product from Macaos Gallery into Macaos Enterprise.
Panels may be automatically generated from scripts. A script specifies an ideal panel size, as well as maximum and minimum dimensions. The automatic panel generator steps the board as close as feasible to the ideal size.
A script may also specify panel parameters such as frame width, corners, copper fill, routing or scoring, break-off tab style, bad marks and break-off holes. In addition, any number of fiducials, tooling holes or slots and annotation fields may be added to the panel frame.
The Autopanel menu lists the available panelization scripts. Clicking on a script name in the menu runs the script and generates the panel.
Scripts may be created or modified in the panelization module's script manager, accessed by the Autopanel|Script manager menu command. It is also possible to download scripts that have been created by EMS providers and import them into the script manager. Right-click on the list of scripts and choose Downloadable scripts to open the download site in your web browser.
Scoring in multi-product panels
Scoring may be selected for a multi-product panel. This is only possible if all of the boards in each row (or column) of a panel have the same height (or width). It is not possible to select or move boards once scoring has been specified. Therefore, all boards should be placed prior to selecting X-scoring or Y-scoring.
The break-off hole generator has been improved to better follow the contour of each board in the panel.
When moving boards within a panel, vertical and/or horizontal lines show when the board is aligned with the edge(s) of other boards i the panel.
2-dimensional barcodes (Data Matrix ECC 200)
A Data Matrix 2-D bar code may be added to the frame of a panel.
Registration control coupon
A registration control coupon may be added to the frame of a panel. The coupon has a combination of thin lines and plated holes, for use with cross-section or registration testing of the finished panel. The product number is encoded as a Data Matrix at either end of the coupon.
Rotate a board in a panel with scoring
A board in a panel with scoring may be rotated 180 degrees by pressing the space key while the mouse cursor is above the board to rotate.
Import module improvements
Improved linking of files to layers
The import module incorporates a new functionality for automatically linking files to their corresponding layers. This approach uses a simplified artificial intelligence engine to analyze all filenames together with the contents of text files (if any) and assign the files to layers. This approach is most useful for users who import files from multiple sources.
The link filters functionality is also still available for use. This approach is more suitable for users who import files from only one or two CAD systems.
A new Autolink menu has been added to ease switching between the autolink modes.
Import board specifications from an existing product
The board specifications and mimimum feature sizes may be imported from an existing product and used when publishing a new product. Use the Edit|Import board specs from existing product menu command, and enter the product number. Be sure to edit any specifications that are not identical to the existing product, especially the board name. This feature is especially useful when importing a new product that is a revision of an existing product.
Let contour follow inside of lines
If the lines that describe an outer contour are larger than 0.6 mm, then the user may choose whether the center of the lines or the inner edge of the lines will be used to define the board contour.
2-dimensional barcodes (Data Matrix ECC 200)
A Data Matrix 2-D bar code may be added to a board.
Stencil module improvements
Automatic stencil creation
Stencils may be automatically generated from scripts. A script specifies the stencil frame and thickness, placement of data in the stencil, detection of fiducial and default reduction of openings.
The autostencil menu lists the available scripts. Clicking on a script name in the menu runs the script and generates the stencil. Additional modifications may be made as necessary before publishing the stencil.
Scripts may be created or modified in the stencil module's script manager, accessed by the Autostencil|Script manager menu command. It is also possible to download scripts that have been created by EMS providers and import them into the script manager. Right-click on the list of scripts and choose Downloadable scripts to open the download site in your web browser.
If a panel is generated from a panel script and a stencil script with the same name exists, then a stencil may be automatically created immediately after publishing the panel.
Problem report facility
The problem report facility has been added to the Stencil module, under the Help menu.
Snap to feature when measuring
When making measurements, you can press the X key to snap the cursor to the nearest object endpoint. The procedure is as follows:
An object endpoint is the start or endpoint of a line or arc, the center point of a hole or pad, or any vertex of a polygon.
Note that some CAD systems create what may appear to be a pad or polygon as a set of lines and arcs. In this case, the cursor will snap to the line or arc endpoint.
View order history and statistics
Use the Tools|Order history menu command to open the order history and statistics summary for your company.
All functionality that was previously reserved for users with Pro licenses is now available for all users. There is no "pro version" of Macaos Enterprise release 3.7.
There are no longer separate user manuals for the import and panelization modules. All information is contained in one user manual, which may be opened from the Help menu in the product browser, import module or panelization module.
Use the Help|What's new in this version menu command to open this web page.

Print a documentation set
Generate a PDF document with technical drawings of each layer in a PCB or paste mask product. A stackup drawing and drill template drawings are also included. The title block texts (such as owner, title, date and drawing number) for the document may be specified as desired.
Scoring in multi-product panels
Scoring may be selected for a multi-product panel. This is only possible if all of the boards in each row (or column) of a panel have the same height (or width).
The break-off hole generator has been improved to better follow the contour of each board in the panel.
When moving boards within a panel, vertical and/or horizontal lines show when the board is aligned with the edge(s) of other boards i the panel.
Macaos Enterprise 3.5 (December 2011)Macaos Enterprise 3.5 (December 2011)
Import module improvements
Automation improvements when importing files
We have made a number of changes further automate the import process.
Automated drill file scaling
In many cases, the drill files will automatically be scaled to match the scale of the Gerber files. Boards with very few drill holes, or where only a small portion of the board has drill holes, may not be scaled automatically.
Automated contour selection
Outer and inner contours are automatically detected/created in many cases. Track routing and scoring must still be specified manually. Note: If the Gerber file for the board layer contains a drawing frame or title block, then contours will not be automatically detected.
Unpack .rar files
Compressed archives in rar format can be opened in the same manner as zip files.
Link filter sharing
User defined link filters are stored online, so that they may be shared with other users in your company. We are also constantly looking at ways to improve and expand the link filters built into the system.
Paste drill tool specifications into the tool list
If drill tool diameters are not defined in the drill file, they are probably defined in one of the text files generated by your CAD system. If you right-click on the file and choose View file, you can select the lines of text that specify the tool definitions and copy them to the clipboard. Then go to the Drill tools tab, right-click on the tool list and choose Paste tool sizes from clipboard to load the tool definitions into the tool list. Note: you should only copy the lines of text that define tools. Do not copy any other text into the clipboard.

If you are still having trouble getting your files imported properly, you can send them to a Macaos engineer with the Help|Request assistance from a Macaos engineer menu command. The engineer will import your files and return an import (*.mei) file to you by e-mail. After opening the .mei file in the Import module, you can add symbols and complete board specifications (as necessary), prior to publishing the product.
Improved stackup drawing
We have refurbished the PDF stackup drawing, to give a more detailed and accurate view of the stackup. Right-click in the stackup viewer (in the stackup selection dialog box) to generate a PDF stackup drawing. The drawing follows ISO standards for the frame and title block.
A product stackup drawing is automatically generated when a product is published. If the product has blind or buried vias, these are shown in the stackup drawing. The product stackup drawing may be viewed or printed from the Macaos Enterprise product viewer.
Macaos Pro users have the option of entering their own text into the various fields of the drawing's title block. In this manner technical drawings for project documentation may be easily created, with title, drawing number, revision, etc. in accordance with the requirements of your organization.
It is now possible to specify an aluminium carrier or core when defining a custom buildup.
Board specifications accessible in tabs
Two new tabs have been added to the product specifications tabs. Board specifications and statistics are shown in these tabs, rather than in a dialog box. This makes it possible to use the graphic viewer while viewing the product data, which can be useful when measuring minimum track, clearance and annular ring values.
Additional layer definitions
Three additional documentationlayer definitions have been added (to Additional layers) for assembly drawings and drill drawings in Gerber format.
Show/hide top or bottom layers
Right-click on the layers overview to show top, bottom or all layers, or to hide all layers.
A product stackup drawing is automatically generated when a panel is published. If the panel has blind or buried vias, these are shown in the stackup drawing. The product stackup drawing may be viewed or printed from the Macaos Enterprise product viewer.
Available only with pro license
Macaos Pro users have the option of entering their own text into the various fields of the title block. This feature applies both to the panel drawing and the product stackup drawing. In this manner technical drawings for project documentation may be easily created, with title, drawing number, revision, etc. in accordance with the requirements of your organization.
Default panel settings
With the Tools|Settings menu command, you can choose between specifying the default panelization settings at program startup, or automatically remembering the specifications used last time the program was run.
Request a quotation for assembly of a PCB
You can automatically send an RFQ to Electronic Manufacturing Service (EMS) providers for a selected PCB. The EMS providers will view your PCB and component info in Macaos Enterprise and then return a quotation to you by e-mail.
Create solder paste stencils with variable thickness
When creating a solder paste stencil, you may define regions that are to have a different thickness than the thickness of the stencil. Regions may either have a reduced thickness (by etching the region) or an expanded thickness (by gluing additional material to the stencil). Defining variable thickness regions will give you more control over the amount of solder paste deposited on component pads.
New color scheme in viewer
The product viewer has been given a new color scheme which more accurately matches the colors of a typical PCB. You can restore the older color scheme by right-clicking on a layer name and choosing Restore classic colors.
Multiple login identities
If you use multiple user logins, Macaos Enterprise will allow you to select an identity when logging in. To enable this feature, set a check mark by the File|Remember multiple passwords menu command.
Get new password
If you have forgotten your login name or password, click on the Get new password button in the login dialog box. A new password will be sent to you by e-mail.
Commit order dialog box
The Commit Order dialog box has a summary of the order, including contents of the shopping basket, price and delivery info for each item, invoice info and total price for the order. You may add a purchase order number and additional comments, if desired.
View packing list
When viewing the order history for a product, you may click on the pack list number to view the package contents and a link to the shipper's online tracking system (where available).
Macaos Enterprise 3.4 (December 2010)Macaos Enterprise 3.4 (December 2010)
Panelization module improvements
In many cases, it may be desirable to put several different boards together into a panel. For example, by putting the different boards in a system together into a panel, it would be possible to order one panel per system. Often, the price of a multi-product panel will be substantially lower than the price of the same quantity of boards ordered individually.
Select a board in the product browser and open the panelization module. Press Ctrl+R to open the product chooser, which lists all board products that match the stackup (or number of layers) and finish/colors (if selected) of the first product. Drag a product from the product list into the panel to add the board to the panel. Move the board to the desired location and click to place the board.
All boards should be placed on the panel before adding tabs, fiducials, drill holes, etc. If no tabs are added to the panel, then the boards will be delivered as individual boards.
Move and rotate boards within a panel
Any board in a panel may be moved or rotated as desired. Draw a selection rectangle over part of a board's contour to select the board. The board will move with the mouse, but will automatically snap to align with the edges of neighboring boards. Press Ctrl to disable snap. Press the space bar to rotate 90 degrees. Click to place the board into the panel.
Add assembly masks to a panel
Add data for peel-off mask (blue mask), paste mask, glue mask, carbon or hard gold to a panel.
Often, the necessary data for assembly masks is missing from the Gerber files created by the board designer. Especially in cases where assembly is being done by an EMS provider, this missing data can be a problem. It is the EMS provider who knows the processes and needs to specify the masks, but getting this information to the board designer early enough to be included in the design is usually not possible. With this feature, the mask areas may be specified by the production engineer while creating the assembly panel.
Masks are specified by drawing rectangles on the panel. The user selects whether the mask will be applied to the entire rectangle or to all soldermask openings within the rectangle. This is repeated at the same location on all instances of the same board. The following assembly masks (top or bottom side) may be defined:
Import module improvements
Define custom stackups
Specify custom layer buildups as a "free build" or a "constrained build" .
Dielectric layers may be specified by thickness or by prepreg glass style. Combinationions of prepregs (such as 1x1080+2x7628) are permitted.
The thickness tolerance may be specified. However, one should only choose a tolerance different from the default value of 10% if required by the design, due to the potential for substantial increases in production costs and lead time.
Commonly used dielectric materials may be selected from the drop-down box, or the material may be specified as a text string.
Right-click on the word "Metal" to add plating above or below an inner layer, for use with buried vias or sequential buildup.
Fiducial marks at specified coordinates.
Fiducials may be added to a board at specified coordinates by pressing Ctrl+Alt and then clicking on the board.
Stencil module improvements
Split large stencil openings into an array of smaller openings
Often it is desirable to split a large stencil opening into an array of smaller openings. This can give better control over the total amount of solder paste deposited on a large pad. The number of columns and rows in the array may be specified, as well as the size of the split openings. By default, the split openings are reduced 10% relative to the un-split opening size. The viewer allows the user to see how the opening will be split prior to applying changes to the stencil.
View pad size adjustments
All of the pad size adjustments are listed in a table on the Shape Manipulation tab. Clicking on a row in the list causes the pads with that adjustment to be highlighted. This feature makes it easy to see what adjustments have been made to which pads.
Product browser improvements
Add assembly masks to existing products
Available only with pro license
Add data for peel-off mask (blue mask), paste mask, glue mask, carbon or hard gold to an existing product by selecting the product and clicking the Add masks button. Assembly mask data is added in the same manner as for panels (described above).
Four new standard folders have been added to the product browser.
It is now possible to choose between "begins with", "ends with", "equals" and "contains" when searching for a product.
A new progress indicator shows the status of active orders.

Stencil module improvements
Improved shape manipulations
Select and highlight objects before adjusting them. Select all objects having the same size/shape. Shapes adjustments are made relative to the size of the corresponding copper pad. Corner rounding may be specified.
Objects may be deleted
Select and delete unwanted objects from the stencil data. Delete unused frames from the frame manager.
Product browser improvements
Product browser columns
Two new configurable columns (Article and Description) have been added to the product browser. Use Show/hide columns in the View menu to turn them on or off.
Right-click on the stackup viewer to open a detailed stackup diagram in PDF format or to copy a simple stackup diagram to the clipboard in text format.
Add documentation files to a product. Right-click on the file list (below the layer list) to add a file to the product. This feature is intended for keeping component assembly documentation together with the product. (Note: Documents added to a product after an order has been placed will not necessarily be used by the manufacturer.)
If a product contains a UL-mark, this is indicated with a text just above the cursor coordinates.
An expected shipment date column has been added to the product history view.
Macaos Enterprise 3.2 (December 2009)Macaos Enterprise 3.2 (December 2009)
Create a new solder paste stencil product from an existing PCB product or from a Gerber file. Choose from one of our pre-defined stencil frames, or upload your own. Reduce opening sizes globally or individually and see the results compared to the copper pads. Once the stencil product is defined, publish it to the product browser for pricing and ordering.
Pick and Place data
Import pick and place data together with Gerber files. Pick and Place data is automatically stepped when panelizing a board product. Right-click on a Pick&Place layer and choose from several formats for Pick and Place output.
Specify files as assembly documentation to insure that they follow the product throughout the fabrication and assembly processes.
More silkscreen symbols
Additional symbols for the component legend or solder mask layer of your board are available:
Improved product searching
The product search dialog now lists the names of folders where the product may be found.
You may now assign your own article and description to products which have been shared to you by partners. This should make it easier to organize and locate partner products.
Autolink filter for Proteus
A pre-defined link filter has been added for Proteus files. You may need to open the link filter manager (Edit|Link filters) to enable the new filter.
Rounded corners on panels
When panelizing a product, it is possible to specify that the corners of the panel frame should be rounded. This makes it easier to load panels into processing machines.
Macaos Enterprise 3.1 (October 2009)Macaos Enterprise 3.1 (October 2009)
New panelization features
Three new features have been added to the Panelization Module:
Add symbols to the component legend or solder mask layer of your board. The following symbols are available:
At times, complex contours may be difficult to define, due to the Import Module's requirement that an outer or inner contour be a closed loop without gaps or overlaps. By holding down the Ctrl and Alt keys while selecting a contour, you can open the Complex Contour Editor, which lists all of the selected segments and indicates any breaks with bold-faced text. You may add or delete segments to try to correct the situation, or simply use the information presented as an aid to correct the layout in your CAD system.
Macaos Enterprise 3.0 (July 2009)Macaos Enterprise 3.0 (July 2009)
With the new Panelization Module, you can quickly step up a single board to an array suitable for assembly. Specify the number of boards, frame width and board spacing. Break-off tabs are automatically added, but these may be modified as necessary. Add tooling holes, fiducial marks and text and then publish the finished panel to the Product Browser.
New viewer features
Cursor coordinates and board size are displayed at the bottom of the layer list.
Left-click and drag to measure distances in the viewer.
New import features
Support has been added to the Import Module for the following:
