For years, PCB fabricators and designers have relied on Gerber Files to communicate design intent. But in today’s increasingly complex designs, standard Gerber Readers pose some serious drawbacks. Commonplace items such as layer stack information, Bill of Materials for Assembly, drill files and test points must be generated separately which is not only tedious and time consuming, but can lead to errors and formatting issues.It’s time to leave the comfort zone of old industry standards and step into the latest intelligence with Altium Designer.
