1. From the menu bar, click File > Import.
    The Import Mount Data dialog opens.
  2. Define import data options in the Import Mount Data dialog.
    • BOM: Can compare the matching status of part names between PCB and BOM.
    • BOM + Mount Data: By using the Mount data from UPF library and BOM file, can verify the inverse placement of the part and misalignment of the coordinates. The UPF files will be loaded with mount data and part names in the library and then comparing with BOM file which is imported by user. The part names from UPF library will have a priority to use then in BOM file. For example, the part name of U1 is different in mount data and BOM file like below, UPF file which has same CPN (Company Part Name) will be linked from the UFP library.
      • PCB: IC-NXP4330_PCB
      • Mount Data: IC-NXP4330_1
      • BOM: IC-NXP4330
    • Comparing by Reference Name: This function compares whether the corresponding part exists in the BOM and mount data based on the reference name on the PCB data, and whether the part name matches.
    • Mount Data List: Selects the mount data from the list. When loading the mount data, 3D package information is output based on the coordinates and angle of the mount data.
      Note: The Mounting Emulator supports the following mount data formats:
      • Panasonic: *.c88, *.txt, plain text (non-extension)
      • Fuji: *.crb, *.pgo, *.job
      • Hanwha (Techwin): *.xml
      • ASM: *.txt
    • BOM
      • BOM Data: Selects the path of BOM file. 3D package shape will be displayed by using part name from BOM. If there is no part name in BOM, it is not displayed.
      • BOM Env: Defines the environment (*.EBI) path to import BOM file.
    • PoP Component Definition: For parts with high component densities, such as mobile phones and digital cameras, a package on package (PoP) design is sometimes applied. Option to check if the position of pin 1 of the upper part of the PoP is the same as the position of pin 1 of the lower part. The Filter is set through the string filter to recognize the top part of the POP from the mount data.

      Figure 1.
      In Figure 1, the part with the same reference name and the suffix _UP is recognized as the top material of the PoP. For example, if U100 parts and U100_UP parts exist in the mounting data, U100 parts are recognized as lower parts and U100_UP parts as upper parts.
    • Allowable Distance specifies the allowable tolerance to be considered as a pass when the coordinates of parts are wrong in the installation verification. If the coordinate misalignment is greater than the entered tolerance, the result is displayed in the Location Difference column of the result list.
    • Mount Equipment chooses the type of mounting equipment. The information such as offset, packing type which are related to each mounting equipment will be used from UPF library.
  3. Result - Top/Bottom.
    The completed verifying result list is displayed on the left side of the Component Mounting Emulator dialog.
    You are able to review components placed in the top and bottom tabs of the Mount Data list. Use the Result Panel to search and review all checking results and correct the incorrect part as exact angle.
    • BOM File: The part name from BOM file will be displayed on here. If there is no matching part name from BOM, it will be shown as ‘Not Exist’.
    • Reference Name: Can search the result by reference name.
    • Part Name: Can search the result by part name.
    • Correct Type/Correct All: Selects information to be corrected for the selected part from the list of mounting verification results. Pressing the Correct All button corrects the mounting data according to the selected Correct Type.
      • All: Corrects Angle Difference, Location Difference of the selected part.
      • Angle: Corrects Angle Difference of the selected part.
      • Location: Corrects Location Difference of the selected part.
    • Table: Displays the list of verification results.
      • Ref Name: Exports Reference Name of part.
      • Part Name: Exports Part Name of part.
      • X: Exports X coordinate of part from mount data.
      • Y: Exports Y coordinate of part from mount data.
      • Angle: Exports angle of part from mount data.
      • Location Diff: Exports difference about X, Y coordinate between 3D shape in UPF and footprint location.
      • Angle Diff: Exports difference about angle between 3D shape in UPF and footprint location.
      • Result: Exports verification results.
        • No Mount Data: Mount data not in UPF library.
        • No_UPF: Matching file not in UPF library.
        • PKG_Type (None): Packing type like reel or tray is not defined in UPF library.
        • Pin Name Mismatch: Pin name of part is not matched between PCB design and UPF library.
        • NO_PKG: 3D shape not in UPF file.
        • Diff Part (PCB, BOM): Part name is different between mount data and PCB design in having same reference name.
    • Click Export to export a verification list with the corrected angle and X, Y coordinate as same format of mount data list.
      • The Export Mount Data dialog opens. Mount Data List chooses target of corrected mount data for exporting. File will be displayed in gray after getting corrected one. Save Directory sets the save directory.
    • Click Export MS Excel to export the Result Table in Excel format.
