WestDev, the EDA (Electronic Design Automation) company delivering technology-leading PCB design solutions, completed its Gerber X2 output, by working closely with Ucamco, the developer of the Gerber format. The output has been fully verified by Ucamco, who confirm it conforms to the X2 specification.
Ucamco launched Gerber X2 with a single goal in mind: to provide a robust, standardised method for automatically transferring layout data and valuable PCB design information from CAD to CAM. Extended Gerber has always done a great job of handling the first part; the image data. But now with Gerber X2, the PCB industry’s de facto standard image format is even better, due to clearer design data, and automatically machine-readable, providing greater transparency and information in the output stage of the design process.
