What Is ScanFAB Xtra Lite?

ScanFAB Xtra Lite is a fully integrated, stand-alone workstation linking existing or old designs with today's automated production environment.


ScanFAB Xtra Lite is a software-only version of ScanFAB Lite.  This Windows-based software can be used to import un-calibrated startd TIFF or BMP images from any scanner platform to automatically convert these images to a vector-based format. 


ScanFAB Lite

ScanFAB Lite uses the same software but comes integrated with a high-resolution, calibrated flatbed scanner. Scanning can be performed in color or B/W mode. This combination allows fast vectorization of data for original board designs, regardless of input.




Input Data Versatility

ScanFAB Xtra Lite adds flexibility to the fabrication process. ScanFAB Xtra Lite imports BMP and TIFF images that were scanned on any un-calibrated scanner platforms at many different dpi's.  BMPs can be in black and white or color.  TIFFs must be uncompressed.






Automatic Features

Tired of using slow vectorization methods? ScanFAB Lite uses a one-button feature that quickly and automatically vectorizes the image. Data is converted to vector format by creating a contour and fill of image, and generating a Gerber 274X formatted output file. ScanFAB Xtra Lite is a one step, low-cost vectorization tool.





Why Use ScanFAB Xtra Lite?


  • Necessity:    Supply production with 274X Gerber data.
  • Flexibility:     Import BMPs and TIFFs from any un-callibrated scanner platform
  • Flexibility:     Use on-hand images
  • Security:      Archive multiple copies of designs, both on and off-site.




Scanning, Automatic Functions and Output Files



  • Import BMP and TIFF files at the resolutions below.  BMP images can be black-and-white, gray or color.  TIFF images must be uncompressed.
  • Input resolutions: 400, 1000, 1600, 2000, 2400, 3200, 4000, 4800 dpi
  • Create Gerber files with the push of a button using the Automatic Contour and Fill feature.






ScanFAB Xtra Lite can easily be upgraded to have scanning abilities (ScanFAB Lite) or even to full reverse engineering capabilities (ScanFAB).
