Mentor Graphics has released a new white paper that discusses the new PCB manufacturing data exchange formats. In particular, the white paper focuses on ODB++, the complete PCB manufacturing exchange data format that contains all of the data required for defining a PCB product in manufacturing.
In the newest version of ODB++, content has been added based on input received from the thousands of people who use ODB++ and solutions-development partners worldwide. ODB++ Version 8 contains significant incremental improvements over the current mainstream version (ODB++ v7), and is designed to enable a smooth transition to higher levels of process integration and automation across the design/fabrication/assembly/test PCB flow.
