SEC - Horn Compensation


  • Add horns to critical SMD corners, with the right shape to protect them in your process 
  • Local shaving to guarantee clearance 
  • Easy-to-use interface and simple set-up 
  • Fully automatic  


  • Pass end-customer inspection procedure with dedicated copper spread values for SMDs and pads 
  • Meet the exact width requirements for special tracks like impedance or coils 
  • Simplify etching by trimming copper regions to make space for compensating nearby tracks and pads 
  • Get the optimal copper spread wherever possible while ensuring the minimum clearance needed for perfect etching 
  • Simple to exclude texts, logos or impedance traces from compensation.
  • Slash setup-time using parameter sets based on e.g. copper thickness or customer specifications.
  • Perfect retracting of modifications made by SEC saving them within the job data. Easily return to the original data.
  • Higher yield due to special treatment of critical objects.
  • Fabricate denser geometries.
  • Improving your etching results, saving money while increasing quality
