Truly flexible Rocket library management

Rocket uses Rocket Library Manager, which was developed in-house (RLM).

This tool is used to keep our prestigious customers’ libraries in good working order. The tool aids in the organisation and maintenance of libraries. RLM is a footprint repository that assists in logging footprint data based on Manufacturing Part Number to Rocket’s SQL database. It will eventually be used to search for footprints, validate footprints, and download footprints based on Manufacturer part number or footprint name. RLM’s extended features include the ability to attach/view the Datasheet and create 3D models of the footprint.

Rocket EMS Gerber Output Tool - consistent performance

At Rocket, we’ve automated the design process to improve flow, including the final but most important step, deliverables. Rocket employs proprietary software known as the Rocket EMS Gerber Output Tool. Because our deliverable process includes a regress automated check, the outputs to the customer or fab house are always consistent and, more importantly, error-free. This method eliminates the need for back-and-forth communication between the Design and Fabrication houses. Our deliverables include comprehensive readme files that explain each file in the final package.
