Altium Templates ( PcbDoc) help to check your layout against the Eurocircuits technology classification ( 6C and 8D). This way you can easily define which Eurocircuits service is most suited for you board, and avoid documentation problems after you place your order.
There are 8 PcbDoc’s :
Classification for PCB proto and Standard pool:
Classification for Tech pool:
There are also 2 scripts available to check the annular ring of your design The “FindAnnularRing_XX.pas” script is capable to check the annular ring for OAR and IAR on the appropriate values for PTH <= 0.45mm (PHD is finished hole size + 100μm). For PTH > 0.45mm is PHD 150μm bigger than the finished hole size.
How to use this package:
- Select the required Pattern / Drill class (6C of 8D) and number of layers.
- Put a copy of the PcbDoc in your Altium Designer project folder (*.PcbPrj).
- Put a copy of the script (6C or 8D) in your project folder.
From this moment the EuroCircuits rules for Pattern Class, Drill Class and layer-stack is available in the design.
- The minimum annular ring rule “Minimum-IAR” is set to the IAR value of the Pattern class. This value is larger than the OAR. When “Top-Middle-Bottom” or “Full stack” is used it is possible to change the OAR to the (smaller) values of the Pattern Class.
- Altium Designer checks the minimal annular ring value when “Top-Middle-Bottom” or “Full stack” is used the OAR can be set smaller than the IAR. The“FindAnnularRing_XX.pas” script is capable to check the annular ring for OAR and IAR on the appropriate values for PTH <= 0.45mm (PHD is finished hole size + 100μm). For PTH > 0.45mm is PHD 150μm bigger than the finished hole size.
