Our products are designed to meet needs across the PCB supply chain. We have stand-alone and cloud-based solutions for each market segment.
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.
- Import Gerber or ODB++ data and specify product parameters
- Solder paste stencil creation
- Add assembly mask data to product
- Work with assembly (PnP and BOM) data (EMS version only)
- Test fixture design
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 €250 for Basic version, €3000 for EMS version. Click here to order a free 30-day evaluation.
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.
Macaos Gallery PreCAM 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.
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 email@example.com if you are interested in joining the system.
Note: Our post-CAM tools are intended for PCB manufacturers. They are not suitable for users without access to a PCB manufacturing line.
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.

Export product data from Macaos Enterprise
Download of product 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:
- €40 per product for the first 5 products downloaded in a calendar month
- €20 per product for the next 15 products
- €10 per product for the next 50 products
- Maximum €1000 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.
