Freeware VisualPlace assists in (manual or automated) PCB assembly. Component placement is extracted from files generated from the EDA suite (notably the Gerber files, the centroid file and the bill-of-materials). The application visualizes the component placement and converts the files (with corrections, where applicable) for further automated processing. Due to a plug-in architecture, VisualPlace works with many EDA suites, and more can be added.
This version includes a rewritten Gerber parser, which now includes Gerber X2 support. Other new features are: the outlines of standard packages can be drawn on top of the PCB image, so that you can visually check whether the package fits on the footprint; components can now be rotated by 45 degrees; a new function for inventory look-up for parts in the bill-of-materials. See the release notes for details.
VisualPlace runs under Microsoft Windows, starting from Microsoft Windows XP. It also runs under Linux with Wine.

GraphiCode was founded in 1987 and has been dealing with PCB data ever since. GraphiCode has long provided innovative solutions to problems including developing GC-Prevue back in 1987 (a free Gerber Viewer), GC-Place in 1992 (the first assembly tool to utilize Gerber data), and the GC-PowerPlatform (a single platform for Design-Fabrication-Assembly-Test) in 2001
GC-Prevue is a hassle free Gerber viewer that allows users to view and print common PCB data formats as well as analyze component information stored in a GraphiCode proprietary workfile format. GC-Prevue’s data output is compatible with all GraphiCode products. GC-Prevue includes popular features like Measure Mode, DXF import and Demensioning and Markup. Typical users of GC-Prevue are Designers, Process Planners, Sales personnel, and various Engineers –anybody who needs to view Gerber data, AutoCAD DXF or component information from other GraphiCode products.
In response to many inquiries from GC-Prevue users, GraphiCode created GC-PrevuePlus to fill the need for an inexpensive Gerber translator and editor. Building on proven functionality from GraphiCode's existing family of products, GC-PrevuePlus takes GC-Prevue to the next level. In addition to GC-Prevue's capabilities, GC-PrevuePlus includes AutoCAD, DXF/DWG import, enhanced measurement tools, data editing capabilities and multiple output formats as well as the ability to easily translate Gerber or DXF into component placement files for use with smt, through hole and inspection machines. Users now have the answer to verify, translate, edit and convert PCB data files.
Graphical CAM software for captive and contract PCB assemblers. GC-PowerPlace accepts Gerber data along with an ASCII BOM file to create and verify assembly equipment programs off-line. Centroids are extracted with sub-micron precision. It can also create solderpaste stencil information and solderpaste inspection information if the need arises. GC-PowerPlace eliminates on-line assembly programming and verification. Typical Return On Investment (ROI) is less than 3 months. Typical users of GC-PowerPlace are Process Engineers, Project Engineers, Process Planners, SMT Engineers, and Programming Technicians. GC-PowerPlace can be extended for In Circuit Test programming and fixture file creation. Using Gerber data, users can produce and output netlists for In-Circuit test equipment, complete with part and pin data in the netlist file. Component pin numbering can accommodate skipped pins and alpha-numerics which is unique, as is the use of soldermask and components in calculating accessibility.

For over 30 years the Unisoft OneFACTORY software suite ( http://www.unisoft-cim.com ) has been used to automate Electronics Manufacturers (EMS/CEM & OEM). Purchase only the software you require now and add modules as your needs grow.
Electronics manufacturing is a high tech environment where every lost minute of output can incur considerable financial cost. Unisoft OneFACTORY serves to quickly setup Pick & Place Assembly equipment, AOI Optical Inspection machines, ATE Test and Selective Solder equipment, etc. for fast pre-production setup. Process assembly sheet documentation and kitting labels are quickly created, aids assembly, first piece inspection, general inspection, fast quotations and cost estimation report, repair/rework, debug, etc.
Also a PC Board viewer from CAD and Gerber is available for use for your assembly department, general inspection, test departments, repair & rework areas, design group, etc. Aids PCB troubleshooting technicians to find components, pins, finds shorted traces, schematic hot linked to the assembly, etc. Distribute the viewer to vendors & customers for better communications.
CAD to CAD and CAD to Machine software and services for translation and data conversion is available. Also Gerber reverse engineering, etc. allows unintelligent data to be translated into smart data CAD files and machine programs.
In addition Unisoft offers the CELLS WORKFLOW Manufacturing Execution System (MES) software which is straight forward simple to setup yet powerful product and job tracking software for fast New Product Introduction (NPI) for electronics manufacturers. CELLS WORKFLOW is also available for other industries such as medical, chemicals, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, foods and textiles. The CELLS WORKFLOW (MES) software provides product and job tracking with traceability for regulatory compliance.
