Cam Services

TRC provides 'current technology processing' of your PCB's.  It is in our best interest to make sure we are analyzing and processing data using all of the current standards and practices.  Most PCB's are panelized in order to save setup time and provide efficient usage of materials. So, step & repeat of boards are created on one large panel. Thieving bars and venting patterns are added around the boards with Test coupons inserted in specific locations. Also Mounting holes, optical targets (fiducials) are added of various production machines. Text and logos are added for easy identification of the board.   Below is a list of what we provide from CAM Services.


We have over 35 years combined engineering experience to better serve you and understand your needs.  We can  evaluate your design through our detailed DFM analysis program and and help guide you to make sure your PCB is ready for  manufacturing.   




  • Complete Panelization Package
  • Customized venting pattern
  • Layer identification
  • Step and Repeat
  • Tooling targets
  • Compensation for lamination shrinkage

Pre-Engineering activity generally includes the following; however, this can be modified as per customer's requirements:

  • Read customer supplied electronics data (Gerber files, drawings, etc.) in any standard format.
  • Align all layers.
  • Re-name layers as per pre-determined naming standards
  • Draw to flash pad conversions.
  • Contour draw or filled areas.
  • Prepare any other customer specific reports.
  • Output data Gerber, or any other customer specific format.

Panelization activity generally includes the following; however, this can be changed to each customer's requirements:

  • Modify / Generate drill layer as per customer specific tolerances.
  • Etch compensation to electrical layers as per customer specific requirements.
  • Perform DRC as per customer specific parameters.
  • Repair DRC errors as per customer specific guidelines.
  • Slivers, acid traps and pin hole elimination.
  • Repair / generate solder-mask layer.
  • Perform silk screen Legend) clippings.
  • Create route file.
