Abstract:

A number of attempts have been made to scan printed wiring artwork, or drawing of circuit layouts, for automatic entry into computer aided design systems. This would permit the large body of hand-taped work and photoplot artwork to be readily integrated into modern CADCAE control systems. An added benefit would be that artwork could simply be drawn with a straight-edge on paper and then automatically scanned for photoplot. The scanning technique is generally referred to as artwork vectorization because a rasterized camera image must be transformed into a series of photoplotter point-to-point draws and single point flashes of different shapes or apertures.
