Pentalogix and Ucamco Announce Release of Pentalogix’s Gerber X3 Output


Reading time ( words)

Tualatin, Oregon-based Pentalogix, which has been working closely with Gerber format developers Ucamco for years, had already successfully implemented Gerber X2. They now follow suit with the implementation of component layer output. The component layer output has been fully verified by Ucamco, who confirm it conforms to the X3 specification.

A team of people in CAD, CAM and EMS developed Gerber X3 with a single goal in mind: to provide a robust, standardized method for automatically transferring assembly information from design to EMS.

Gerber X2 already fully covered the automatic transfer of information from design to fabrication, in a simple and unequivocal manner. Gerber X3 extends Gerber to assembly, covering the complete EMS process. By using existing syntax and graphics capabilities of X2, Gerber X3 is highly compatible and maintains the trademark simplicity for which Gerber has always been known.

Time for a Price Hike?

If you manage a fabrication facility, we don’t envy you. You’re being hit on all sides with price increases, you’re traditionally leery of raising your own prices, but you must do something. Do you raise prices, trying to squeeze out more efficiency, or is it some combination of both? We asked Prototron President Dave Ryder and I-Connect007 columnist Dan Beaulieu to share their thoughts on the current fab pricing environment, the need for greater cooperation, and some pricing strategies for fabricators who are nervously eyeing their bottom line.
