File Requirements

1. PCB Gerber files

PCB Gerber files should be exported in RS-274X format and contain the following files:

  • pcbname.GTL                 Top Layer
  • pcbname.GTS                 Top Solder Mask 
  • pcbname.GTO                Top Silkscreen
  • pcbname.GBL                 Bottom Layer
  • pcbname.GBS                Bottom Solder Mask
  • pcbname.GBO                Bottom silkscreen
  • pcbname.GML/GKO       Board Outline
  • pcbname.TXT                 Drills
  • pcbname.GL2                 Inner Layer (for 4 layer only) 
  • pcbname.GL3                 Inner Layer (for 4 layer only)X

2. BOM (Bill of Materials)

Your BOM file should be in csv, xls, or xlsx format, and must include the following:

Designator:        The location of the component, (some PCB design softwares call this Designator, Location, or Reference)

Part Number:     Manufacturer part number of the component

Quantity:             The corresponding quantity of a component
