Stencil Creator Software
The main purpose of a SMT stencil is to transfer solder paste to a bare circuit board, where a component must be in electrical conductive contact with a metal landing pad. This eliminates tedious hand soldering of prototype PCB boards and reduces assembly time. Altium offers a PCB software that allows stencil creators and designers to configure the layers of the PCB.
Altium Designer’s Layer Stack Manager offers dialog, which allows for defining the board structure and configuration of layers, drill pairs, flex-rigid design, and openings in the stencil define locations where solder paste is to be applied. Altium, with over 30 years of PCB experience, helps you take your concept from idea to manufacturing, all in one single P/C based software.
The Layer Stack Manager has features that include:
Set of layers that are used in the overall PCB design
Single PCB or rigid-flex design incorporating numerous rigid and flex sections
Layer stack includes various types such as copper, dielectric, surface finish, and mask layers
