I am just releasing Version 1.0.0.9 Beta Release Added feeder
swapping. minor fix in Mydata TP Sys 2.7
Added more Juki 2000 and 700 series and Yamaha YP/YG machines, more
Panasonic machines.
Updated Options tab, User interface cleansing
Added Checkbox for value and footprint in feeder output. Review of all
existing output formats.
Fix Altium Designer multiple schematic reading
Many more bug fixes.

Hope it is all to your liking.
It is not a complete release as the feeder swapping needs more work
for multi-line selection.
Some formats are missing Panelisation.
Any format issues, could you please email me on the address on the
webpage.

One assumes it is also closed-source
and that you plan to charge for it
after your volunteer (read: free) labor force beta tests it for you.

So, apparently, proprietary and closed from start to finish.
Yes?

While Protel/Altium only runs on Windows there does not seem like any
reason to port to other platforms.
The output formats run on the intended machines which often as not are
propriety to those machines.
Although windows is becoming more dominant on the top end machines.

You can still read it in Open Office.

Yes it is closed source!

Eventually, download it while it is still free!

That would be nice, but since I released it originally in Nov 2010, I

have received less than
10 emails with any suggestions for new output formats, and no bug
finds.

Yes it is closed source. But look on the bright side, most of the
machines (45 so far) that this program talks to are
sort of closed to external developers with only very expensive
software available to drive them. It talks to machines such as
Panasonic MSR
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_MofAvgJC8
Juki 2050
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBEGtzARs88&feature=related

and so on.

Juki machines are programmed in a binary format that took me about one
week to decipher each example type.
There are 4 Juki types in this program at the moment.

At the other end of the scale it talks to Manncorp 7722 less that 30k
new (its a desktop machine)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QedVXmtETXE

Yamaha YM6021
(no video available)
Yamaha YM100/84 talking UFOS.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5n8oCe6GT0

Zevatech 570(juki in non US markets) <US5k on the secondhand market
These machines have a yahoo group "Zevatech"

So it may be closed source, but at the moment I know of no open source
initiatives to
talk to such a broad range of machines, there are simple programs
developed by various
authors that go from one CAD format to only one machine. A package
like mine would usually cost many
thousands, to 100's of thousands of dollars.


So be happy that PCB Synergy exists and that I took the time and
energy to write it!
