Want to get it right the first time? Like all manufactured goods, successful PCB fabrication relies on a well-orchestrated design. Altium Designer is the ultimate PCB design tool that enables an efficient, powerful workflow for board-level electronics designers.
With Altium Designer and Gerber online X2 support, you can bring your ideas to life with the most efficient and collaborative PCB design environment available. The overall benefit of adopting the Gerber X2 format for transferring board design data to fabrication and assembly houses is the rich set of manufacturing data included in the file set and the backward compatibility with the previous standard for a low-risk upgrade path.
Gerber X2 format includes, but is not limited to:
What layer or data is represented within each file: top solder mask, bottom copper layer, etc.
What is the Pad function and whether a given flash is an SMD or via pad, or a fiducial, etc.
The net number, component reference and pin number of component pads
Altium Designer can export a wide range of PCB design fabrication and assembly file formats, like Gerber X2. Give us a try and take advantage of the free trial today!
