In order for the PCB manufacturer and client to immediately understand each other, we ask that you use the following data and file name links in your design work. When exporting from the CAD program, pack the necessary files (in*.zip or *.rar format) and name the set according to your own discretion – using the design name, number, etc. If you were to make changes to files already sent to Brandner PCB, please do not forget to add the version designation or number to the set name. This avoids the situation where the manufacturer might use the previous ‘incorrect’ version.
|Top layer (Top)||Gerber RS-274X, 3/3 mm||top.gbr|
|Bottom layer (Bottom)||Gerber RS-274X, 3/3 mm||bot.gbr|
|Innerlayers numbered from top to bottom||Gerber RS-274X, 3/3 mm||i2.gbr;i3.gbr;i4.gbr etc|
|Top soldermask (topmask)||Gerber RS-274X, 3/3 mm||topmask.gbr|
|Bottom soldermask (botmask)||Gerber RS-274X, 3/3 mm||botmask.gbr|
|Top silkscreen, legend, marking||Gerber RS-274X, 3/3 mm||topsilk.gbr|
|Bottom silkscreen,legend,marking||Gerber RS-274X, 3/3 mm||botsilk.gbr|
|Outline, border and cut outs||Gerber RS-274X, 3/3 mm||border.gbr|
|Top pastemask||Gerber RS-274X, 3/3 mm||toppaste.gbr|
|Bottom pastemask||Gerber RS-274X, 3/3 mm||botpaste.gbr|
|Drill file for plated holes (PTH)||Excellon 2 3/3 mm||plated.drl|
|Drill file for nonplated holes (NPTH)||Excellon 2 3/3 mm||unplated.drl|
|Blind vias drill file from top to innerlayer 2 (for example)||Excellon 2 3/3 mm||topi2.drl|
|Buried vias drill file between innerlayer 2 and 3 (for example)||Excellon 2 3/3 mm||i2i3.drl|
NOTE! The table shows the links between the most popular PCB features. If your work does not feature blind vias, for example, then there is no need to generate empty files.
