Ucamco file formats set the standard for reliable pcb data transfer
Ucamco formats are kept in pace with the constantly evolving needs of the PCB industry and are supported by all leading CAD/CAM vendors
The latest version of the file format specification manuals are available for download on the Ucamco Downloads page.
The Gerber file format is the de facto standard for printed circuit board (PCB) image data transfer. Every PCB design system outputs Gerber files and every PCB engineering system reads them.
The dpf format represents the layer information of a Printed Circuit Board. DPF files contain object coordinates and definitions for embedded apertures, contours and step/repeat blocks.
The Job file represents the pcb layer stackup and contains general Job related information like customer and revision number, references to all layers (dpf) and inividual layer buildup information.
