DownStream Technologies Announces Support for Flex, Rigid Flex and Embedded Component Designs in New Software Releases

Marlborough, MA – November 17, 2020 – Downstream Technologies, LLC announced today the release of new versions of their industry-leading PCB Post Processing solutions CAM350 / DFMStream V 14.5 and BluePrint-PCB V6. With these releases, both products will now support the importation and visualization of CAD designs containing Flex, Rigid Flex and Embedded component data in both 2D and 3D views.

 

“Flex and Embedded Component designs have become more popular as electronic products have become smaller and more complex, especially in the military, aerospace, medical and commercial markets,” said Rick Almeida, one of DownStream’s Founders. “With these new releases our tools support full Flex/RigidFlex bi-directional passing of stack-up data, as well as unique documentation features not found in any tools’” he added.

 

 

This release is the first of several planned releases supporting Flex, Rigid Flex and Embedded Components. It focuses on importing and visualizing Flex / Rigid Flex data created by PCB CAD tools in our 2D & 3D View Ports, as well as easily documenting complex Rigid / Rigid Flex Stack-Ups and provides the ability to share that documentation with PCB Fabricators.
