Towards Gerber X3

Ucamco has developed a proposal to include assembly information in Gerber data. We are heading towards Gerber X3. 

The purpose of this draft Gerber standard is to transfer the component information held in CAD which is needed in manufacturing to:

  • visualize the component placement to check for errors and set up the assembly,
  • generate the manufacturing tools, such as the paste stencils and the pick and place machine programs,
  • assist in the procurement of the components.
