Gerber Files for Manufacturing
Gerber files are the first step in any PCB fabrication process. When you design a PCB with any piece of software, you will see the copper of the PCB as many different shapes, lines, and sizes. Those graphical representations of the copper need to be converted into data that PCB manufacturers can use to produce a circuit board. This data is stored in what are called Gerber files!
A Gerber file has four main elements which include configuration parameters, aperture settings, XY coordinates, and flash command codes. Each portion of the PCB requires a different Gerber file. This means that each conductor layer, soldermask layer, silkscreen layer, etc. all need to have their own Gerber files.
Gerber data can be modified and generated directly with a text editor, but there are various types of software that can be used to view and guide the Gerber file creation.
PCBONLINE accepts Gerber files in RS-274X and RS-274-D formats as well as the following layout file formats:
• PCB files from PADS
• PCB and .DDB files from Protel
• .BRD files from Eagle
• PCB and/or .DDB files from Altium Designer
The standard specifications that we implement are derived from current IPC standards, but we go above and beyond what is required.
This is an overview page for our prototype PCBs. Different types of PCBs have different technical specifications and capabilities, which cannot all be shown here.
