Ate Tester and Fixture Translation Services
DEMONSTRATIONS: The fastest way to learn about the Unisoft software is usually to go online with us and we can process one of your PC Boards or use our data files to show you the software. We highly recommend a hands-on demonstration and we are available now or virtually anytime to go online with you — contact us.
Questions or Online Meeting Demonstrations
If you have a question use the email that follows or call us.
Online meetings are usually the fastest way to learn about the Unisoft software. We can go online virtually anytime and process one of your PC Board projects or use our data files to show you the software.
To start an online meeting the procedure is simple
- We normally use GoToMeeting for the online meeting. You'll click the "Join a Meeting" link there and enter the logon ID# we give you.
TRIAL SOFTWARE: Another quick way to learn about the software is to download the trial software.
The trial software has HELP for most menu items by hovering over the menu item for a second then click any of the videos, manual or website links to learn about the software.
Use our in-house ATE TESTER AND FIXTURE TRANSLATION SERVICES to convert your CAD or GERBER files into real reference designators, netlists, X/Y component pin geometries, values, tolerances, part numbers, etc. Also Gerber to Takaya Flying Probe IPC-D-356 / IPC-2581 / ipc2581 file. This data is then used by Test Engineers to program their ATE (Genrad ".ckt", Teradyne "ipl", Hewlett Packard "board & board x/y"), MDA, and flying probe test equipment (Takaya, Spea, etc.) and design the "Bed of Nails" test fixtures. Need gerber conversion, gerber to netlist, x/y, etc.? Our in-house translation services are reasonably priced. Contact Unisoft for details or fill in the "ASSEMBLY EQUIPMENT PROGRAMMING SERVICE FORM" below.
Do you have special problems such as gerber translation? For example: You do not have the native CAD files for your project. You only have the raw Gerber Files and a BOM (Bill Of Materials). You need to program your ATE "Automatic Test Equipment" and you do not know where to turn — we can do it for you! We take your gerber files and BOM and create the exact Reference Designators, Net List, X/Y, Part Number, Values and Tolerance data you need to program your project. Of course the software also imports virtually all standard native CAD file types too!
You may already have Test software that you use to program your ATE Test equipment but you need a way to convert newer or non supported cad file formats to this software. Unisoft can import virtually any CAD format and export a standard file for import to your existing ATE Test software. Output formats include GENCAD, Fabmaster, ipcd356, ipc-2581, ipc2581, Mentor Graphics, PADS .ASC, etc. For example, Unisoft can import virtually any CAD file format and export to Teradyne/Genrad D2B Alchemist or Fabmaster Test Expert software. We can sell you this software for your use or can perform a translation service for you and return the correct files to you.
IMPORTING CAD FILES: A list and samples of the CAD file formats Unisoft imports are on our Importing CAD Files page.
