The Master Lead Frame Designer Suite has
5 major features:

  1. Intelligize any Type of Existing Lead Frame using the Lead Frame Intelligization module.

    This includes: QFP, TQFP, LQFP, MQFP, PQFP, QFN, PQFN, Micro QFN (µQFN), VQFN, SOJ, SOP, HSOP, SSOP, HSSOP, SOT, TSOT, TSSOP, HTSSOP, SON, VSOP, TVSOP, CSOP, QSOP, MSOP, SOIC, SSOIC, CC, LCC, PLCC, CLCC, LLP, DPLLP, MLF, MLP, UCSP, XQFN, XDFN, DIL, DIP, DFN, LFCSP, CDIP, CERDIP, MDIP, FDIP, PDIP and SDIP.

    It uses the
    LFINTEL command to automatically intelligize the unintelligent metal. And it uses the ATTINTEL command to intelligize any combination of dies and wires including stacked dies and side by side stacks.

  2. Interactive / Automatic Design of New Leaded Type Lead Frames including QFP, BQFP, CQFP, HQFP, LQFP, MQFP, PQFP, RQFP, SQFP, TQFP and VQFP, with these commands also capable of making SOJ, SOP, HSOP, SSOP, HSSOP, HTSSOP, SON, SOT, TSOT, TSSOP, TVSOP, HTSSOP, VSOP, CSOP, QSOP, MSOP, SOIC, SSOIC, DIL, DIP, CDIP, CERDIP, MDIP, FDIP, PDIP and SDIP, using a 5 step method.
     
    1. Lead tip creation and array.
    2. Creation of the DAP, ground ring, tie bars, and external leads.
    3. Auto-routing of the internal leads between the lead tips and the external leads.
    4. Creation of the Power bars.
    5. Placement and wire bonding of the die.

    2b. Automatic Design of New Leadless Type Lead Frames by setting parameters in different parametrically controlled commands that use simple dialog box controls to create the following Lead Frame types, including Quad Flat Pack No Leads (QFN), PQFN, Micro QFN (µQFN), and XQFN, XDFN, DFN, LLP, DPLLP, MLP, MLF, LFCSP, UCSP, SON and others. The total design is done using a 3 step method.
     

    1. Lead Frame creation.
    2. Creation of the Power bars.
    3. Placement and wire bonding of the die.

     

  3. Modifying Existing Intelligent Lead Frames using the LEADFRAME and LFMODIFY commands to make new Lead Frames for new dies and for optimization to reduce gold usage. LEADFRAME parametrically edits the DAP, ground ring, tie bars, and external leads. LFMODIFY parametrically edits the lead tips and the internal leads.

  4. The SEARCHLF (Lead Frame Library Search) Command Selects the Best Lead Frame for a Specific Die from an intelligized library of Lead Frames by reviewing the dies compatibility with 10 standard Lead Frame parameters including the number of internal lead tips, the number of external pins, the DAP size, the Lead Frame technology type and custom parameters. It then places the die in the selected Lead Frame(s) with a fixed or optimized netlist and then runs the Advanced Design Rule Checker (ADRC) to test the compatibility with each Lead Frame and make a report. *Available as an add-on module, not included with Master Leadframe Suite

  5. Simulate new or existing Lead Frames by exporting to various simulation soft wares including ANSYS’s HFSS and Q3D, CST’s MWS, Cadence APD/SIP Virtuoso.

Lead Tip Patterns may be created by 3 different methods:

  1. Using our TIPS command sections of lead tips may be generated parametrically to follow any shape leading edge and then arrayed or joined to make a complete Lead Frame.
     
  2. Using our ATTACH command, a die is selected and parametric controls are set to automatically generate the bond wires and some standard Lead Frames styles. Automatic fan out types include Vpattern, Curved and Vpattern/Curved.
     
  3. The Lead Frame Intelligizer module captures the lead tips as it converts legacy unintelligent drawings into intelligent designs compatible with Cadence’s APD and SIP and other high end analysis tools.   [More info]

Automatic Software Functions:

  • The LEADFRAME command parametrically makes all the external I/O gull wing pins, the DAP, the ground ring, the tie bars and the gate and vent geometries with full electrical and DRC intelligence.
     
  • The PLACEDIE command can replace dies in existing designs or place them in new designs or intelligized Lead Frame blanks using automatic bond wire generation with or without a net list. It even places stacked dies or side by side stacked dies in a Lead Frame.
     
  • The 3DPCB command makes a 3D image of any EPD design. [More info]
     
  • The MCDS command then extracts the precise material volumes. [More info]
    • *Available as an add-on module, not included with Master Leadframe Suite
       
  • Lead and Bond Wire Editing

DRC and Connectivity Functions:

  • The NETCHK command provides connection verification and netlist generation. Extract the netlist and optionally compare it to a reference netlist. It reports 28 different error types.
     
  • Run the ADRC (Advanced Design Rule Checker) command using complex 2D rules and rules with arrays of settings. This tool provides complete DRC and MRC rules to ensure that the lead frame meets all standard and custom design and manufacturing rules before being sent to manufacturing. [More info]
     
  • MAKEEDGE is an automatic boundary edge generator that provides graphical data for chemical milling with etch compensation. Boundaries can be automatically generated from the non-boundary geometries or from overlapping boundary geometries. [More info]
