Manufacturing panel information: the panel file is
an optional file.
The panel file contains the physical description of the manufacturing
panel and the location of the boards and components on that panel. It can
be created interactively then exported.
Annotations: a new section is added to the file.
It contains notes for the design that can be displayed to allow the
electrical and mechanical designers to communicate additional information
about the design entities. They are not intended for manufacturing
purpose. At the moment, they can only be
modified in CATIA then exported.
Offset: the offset field represents the mounting
offset for a component onto the board.
It is also available for board mounting offset onto the panel.
Placing a component creates a
constraint. Editing the constraint allows you to modify the
offset. It will be taken into
account in the export file.
Properties: an optional record specifies
properties for the component such as capacitance, resistance, tolerance,
power_max, etc. as well as user-defined attributes.
You can set the values in the Properties
dialog box. Your changes will be taken into account in the export file.
