Modern electronics design changes constantly. Each new innovation seems to push the limits of technology. But in many cases, we can be so comfortable using with our routine that we don’t recognize the fact that we’re being slowed down by familiar but outdated methods and processes.
Gerber files have been an industry standard for years. But most designers, engineers, and manufacturers will acknowledge that the standard Gerber viewer and files have limitations and drawbacks. Modern PCB design demands more, and Altium Designer delivers. Altium’s use of the powerful Gerber X2 automates old manual processes like the BOM, layer stack, net list, drill files and test points documentation. With Altium, there’s no need to generate documents separately so errors and formatting issues are eliminated.
Altium and Gerber X2 provide:
Intelligent formatting processes
backwards compatible image outputs for layers
drill files and other necessary intelligence
Real-time cost estimation and tracking
layer stack definitions
