Here at my place of work we still produce our gerbers (6x00) with aperture and drill files, etc., zip up all of the layers and send them out to the pcb vendors. We are talking about switching the format to RS-274X. What advantages does this have and does it change about the way you think about gerbers files?Just need a little eduction on the subject!Regards,BrianA
Brian,Have a look at this site this has Application notes about different Gerber formats. Also explains about the advantages of moving from RS274D to RS274X and want to know what's in it and how it works?.http://www.artwork.com/gerberHope this give you some information.Good Luck!!!Raj.
Hi Brian,Consider going directly to ODB++. Almost all fab houses accept it these days and all the thinking, zipping etc. is done for you.Your single ODB++ tgz file contains all the data needed to fabricate the board including the netlist and part outlines. It makes it easier to discuss problems with the vendor, it's easier for them to understand what you want and harder for them to get it wrong. I think ODB++ Inside is installed by default in 15.x (under File/Export) but I am not certain.Cheers, Dave
RS274X does not need aperture files and gerber files are smaller (as long as i remember, not use 6X00 for long time)
I agree with George although I have no explicit examples that I can
graphically show. There are places the interface does break down and is
not directly supported by Cadence, and rightfully so, as it is not an
industry standard output as GERBER 274X is and cadence fully stands
behind that. As a matter of fact from what I have seen Cadence has the
best implementation of the 274X format on the market.
