Fuji PD Development

Fuji PD Development | 26 June, 2000

My facility is getting swamped with new products. We are spending a LOT of time doing PDs. We generally use calipers for this operation. I understand Fuji has a PD developer tool that helps automate PD generation. Has anyone had any luck with this tool? What was your experience? Pros/cons? Worth the $?

Matt, I assume you mean F4G. This comes as a complete packadge...worth the look, but.......... You might want to look at changing your PD naming convention. I can't imagine having so many new types of parts that you are being overwhelmed. How do you name them? Try to name according to type, not by number or vendor. If you already do, take a look at IPC. They have tons of part-outlines you could be converting to PD's before they come in the door.

That's just my opinion, I could be wrong!!!

What kind of new PD's are you having to write? Are they unique or are they just regular parts but with different dimensions? What software are you using. what machines do you currently utilize.

Hi Fujicam 2.0 has not been released, and probally will not be released until the 4 quarter. Fujicam and F4G have a standard of 117 generic PD's in their library, not 2500.

Matt,

no matter how extensive the PD library you get with the different Fuji systems, you will still have to tweak some of them. But there's something you should lock in your drawer, the caliper. Why using it? The most accurate data is in the data sheet of the component. As a programmer, you must have access to this, not only for vision, but also for the thermal requirements during reflow.

You will want to use the caliper only to measure the trays, but not for the parts. And try to make sure you identify the right package of the components, since different designers may call differently the same one.

Good luck, Ioan

Matt, I suppose the automated system you refer to is the VPD-101 camera system that captures component image and with a few clicks on the mouse you are able to define all the element data and dimensions of that part. Check with your local Fuji agent, they will have more information on the Vision Part Data aka. VPD-101 system. The VPD-101 works with F4G and Fujicam V1.2. By the way, Fujicam V2.0 is not release yet.

Regards,

George

The best thing to do is to call Fuji America in Chicago (847.821.2401); they will have the correct information. However, before you call determine your needs and then relay them to Fuji. You do not want to invest a lot of money and only utilize it (VPD or any type of digitizer) a couple of times.
