Why convert the PCB file to GERBER file and drilling data and hand it to the PCB factory board?
Most engineers are accustomed to designing PCB files and sending them directly to the PCB factory. The most popular method in the world is to convert the PCB files into GERBER files and drilling data and then hand them over to the PCB factory. Why do you want to “do more?”
Because electronic engineers and PCB engineers have different understandings of PCBs, the GERBER files converted by the PCB factory may not be what you want. If you design the parameters of the components in the PCB file, you don’t want these parameters to be displayed. On the finished PCB, you have not explained, the PCB factory will leave these parameters on the finished PCB according to the gourd painting. This is just an example. This can be avoided if you convert the PCB file to a GERBER file yourself.
The GERBER file is an international standard lithography format file, which includes RS-274-D and RS-274-X formats. The RS-274-D is called the basic GERBER format and must be accompanied by a D code file. A complete description of a graphic; RS-274-X is called the extended GERBER format, which itself contains D code information. Commonly used CAD software can generate these two format files.
How to check the correctness of the generated GERBER? Simply import these GERBER files and D-code files into the free software Viewmate V6.3 to see them on the screen or through the printer.
Drilling data can also be generated by various CAD software. The general format is Excellon, which can also be displayed in Viewmate. Of course, there is no drilling data.
