PCB design is constantly changing, pushing the limits of modern technology. But when it comes to prepping for production, many of us are still using an ancient process and suffering from the limitations. Gerber files have been the primary method used by designers and engineers for years, but they have limitations when used in today’s modern designs. So Altium is getting behind the intelligent new formatting of the Gerber X2.
Altium Designer 18 and the Gerber X2 allow you to easily access materials information, automate net lists, test points, drill files and BOM and initiate a review process or request feedback from design team members.
Altium Designer’s Gerber-X2 file format allows you to:
Perform a search of live supplier data
Cross-probe, view and print design documentation
Automatically generate output documentation
Define layer stacks– and much more!
