PCB Design Guidelines

PCB Gerber CAM files

We accept Gerber CAM files with the following file extension.

  • filename.GTL -> Top Layer
  • filename.GBL -> Bottom Layer
  • filename.GTS -> Top Soldermask
  • filename.GBS -> Bottom Soldermask
  • filename.GTO -> Top Silkscreen
  • filename.GBO -> Bottom Silkscreen
  • filename.GKO -> Board Outline
  • filename.DRD -> Drills

You can download our Eagle PCB CAM file when using Eagle PCB CAD for your board design, which will generate the gerbers in the format we can process.

Please note the files extensions specified above are important. "filename" can be your board name.
