Consumer

A rich feature set gives PCB designers, EMS providers, purchasers, hobbyists, or anyone involved in electronics development the tools they need to move from a single PCB layout to a finished product.

Stand-alone

Macaos Gallery provides all of this functionality in a stand-alone environment. All of your product files are kept on local (or network) storage, so you have complete control over your IP. Products may be easily exported to fully documented Gerber/Drill for transfer to the PCB manufacturer of your choice. Price €200. Click here to order a free 30-day evaluation.

Cloud-based

Macaos Enterprise adds an online PCB market and community. In addition to instant price quotations for most PCBs, you can order PCBs, custom mechanical parts, test fixtures and accessories, depanelization fixtures, and more.

Macaos Enterprise supports collaboration. For example, a design bureau can upload their finished layout and assign its ownership to their client. The client may then submit an RFQ for assembly to participating EMS providers. The EMS provider could then panelize the board while preparing their quotation for the assembly job. All of this with a single, production-ready data set in a secure cloud-based service.

Macaos Enterprise is available at no cost to the end user. It is sponsored by participating PCB suppliers. For this reason, there is a nominal download fee if you wish to export Gerber data suitable for manufacture by an external supplier. Click here to become a user.

Pre-CAM

Stand-alone

Macaos Gallery Pro is the ideal Pre-CAM solution for PCB manufacturers, resellers and traders. It adds a powerful price calculation and quotation generation functionality to Macaos Gallery, allowing you to respond to RFQs within just a couple of minutes. Price €5000/yr. Click here to order a free 30-day evaluation.

Cloud-based

We provide PCB suppliers/resellers who participate in The Macaos Enterprise System with the tools they need to manage their online market. In addition to Macaos Enterprise, the system includes:

  • Macaos Perception gives resellers the insight necessary to manage and grow their sales. It provides complete oversight and management of orders, products, quotations, shipments, customers and users, and more.
  • Macaos Convergence manages the workflow between the sales arm and the manufacturing arm of the supply chain. It brings the diverse needs of various participants in the PCB manufacturing supply chain together and helps optimize the flow of information. This system is used by manufacturers and resellers to manage the quotation and order process, optimize production panelization, track process documentation, generate shipping documents and more.

Contact us at support@macaos.com if you are interested in joining the system.

Post-CAM

Note: Our post-CAM tools are intended for PCB manufacturers. They are not suitable for users without access to a PCB manufacturing line.

Stand-alone

Macaos RapidCam allows a PCB manufacturer to step up a single board or panel to a production panel and generate process documentation and production data files for their specific machines, typically in less than 5 minutes. Click here to order a free 30-day evaluation.

Cloud-based

Macaos Fusion is a powerful production planning tool for PCB manufacturers. Macaos Fusion combines an intelligent work list functionality with our acclaimed panelization technology to quickly put together optimized production panels for small or large series production. Scrap and stock tracking make it possible to run small series quick-turn production without unnecesary overproduction. Click here to order an evaluation version.

1 Users who manufacture, sell, trade, or broker bare (unpopulated) printed circuit boards must license Macaos Gallery Pro. Macaos Gallery (basic version) will not be licensed to such users. This limitation also applies to CAM/Engineering service providers (such as Pre-CAM or Quotation services) for such users.

2 Macaos Enterprise is sponsored by PCB resellers, who have access to product data for purposes of generating quotations and fulfilling orders. With Macaos Gallery, all of your product data is stored in your local system and is not visible to any other parties.

3 The Depanelization module is not available for Macaos Gallery users located in a region where a Macaos Enterprise supplier has an established market (currently the Nordic countries). If this applies to you, you will need to use Macaos Enterprise for depanelization.

Services

Receive RFQs for Assembly from Macaos Enterprise users

After insuring that a product has PnP and BOM data, an Enterprise user may send an RFQ to participating EMS providers. The EMS provider is notified by e-mail, and has access to the product data within Macaos Enterprise. The EMS provider also gets a small banner advertisement on the Macaos Enterprise welcome page.

Price: €110 per month

Price with unlimited export of product data: €2600 per year

Receive RFQs for PCB products from Macaos Enterprise users

When enabled, each time a Macaos Enterprise user gets an online price, an RFQ is automatically generated and sent by e-mail. The e-mail attachment may be opened directly in Macaos Gallery Pro, allowing for rapid generation of a quotation to the requester.

This service is only available to Macaos Gallery Pro users. Contact Macaos Support for pricing.

Export product data from Macaos Enterprise

Download of data files from Macaos Enterprise is a pay-per-use service. 

Macaos Enterprise is sponsored by PCB suppliers, who make the application available at no cost to their customers. For this reason, there is a cost for extracting data from the system that could be used to purchase from competing suppliers.

Note: If a product has been previously purchased, then the data files for download have been processed by a manufacturing engineer, and are considered to be production-ready.

The service is initially disabled, so that users will not inadvertently incur download charges. If the service is enabled, it will be available to all users in the company, and the company will be responsible for all download charges incurred.

Download charges are as follows:
€44 per product for the first 5 products downloaded in a calendar month
€22 per product for the next 15 products
€11 per product for the next 50 products
Maximum €1100 per month

If a product is downloaded more than one time within a calendar month, it will only be invoiced once. However, if a product is downloaded again in a different calendar month, the download will be invoiced again.

Macaos invoices at the end of each calendar month where a download has taken place. The invoice will be generated in PDF format and sent by e-mail.

The download service will be enabled on request. The request must include the company's invoice address, VAT number, and an e-mail address to receive the PDF invoice. Send your request to Macaos Support.

The download service may also be disabled on request.
