CAM350/DFMStream Product Training Course


PCB Design Courses

Where | When:


DownStream Technologies offers a CAM350/DFMStream Course focused on Design Verification and PCB Post Processing. This will be a great opportunity to learn how to get the most out of your CAM350 and/or DFMStream software. This course will cover how to verify and optimize design data prior to release to Fabrication.

Topics include:

  • Getting familiar with the GUI and other features
  • How to output data from various CAD systems
  • Gerber identification and import
  • Streams Rule Checking - how to set them up and why
  • Netlist Comparison and Design Compare
  • Design Rule Checking
  • Design for Fabrication (DFM)
  • Why and how to use the Design Analyzer
  • Putting together the completed design package for Fabrication
  • Utilizing the Universal Release Package

Full Day Course 9AM-5PM, includes lunch and refreshments

Note: Please register 30 days prior to scheduled training date.

This course is intended for beginner to intermediate level users. We planned the materials to be informative, beneficial and challenging for all levels of PCB Design professionals.

Course Outline

Data Preparation:

  • Proper output of Gerber and NC files for fabrication
  • RS-274d vs. RS-274x
  • CAD system output hints

CAM350 CAM Editor:

  • Input options
  • DXF to Gerber and Gerber to DXF
  • Comparing layers for differences
