Ucamco Releases Final Version of the Gerber X3 Specification


Reading time ( words)

Ucamco has released the final version of the Gerber X3 specification. Gerber X3 includes component information in Gerber data.

Gerber X3 will revolutionize the way component information held in CAD is transferred to EMS and assembly companies. It will become the new de facto standard due to its compatibility with existing workflows and ease of implementation.

The new standard is needed 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

You can download the X3 specification here.

What a week that was! I didn’t get to endure the 11-hour flight each way, neither did I need my comfy old shoes, but it certainly was a marathon event. And real-time-plus-six-hours gave me a few late nights, but it was such a meaningful experience, and well worth the effort!

IPC Supporting Newcomers in the Industry: Notes from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/01/2021 | Marc Carter, Aeromarc
With the wrap-up of IPC APEX EXPO 2021, it was extremely gratifying to note the emphasis placed on getting young people involved to combat the “graying out” knowledge losses facing our industry. A part of that emphasis was reflected in the award ceremony on Tuesday, March 9, which featured some people you may have seen mentioned in my “Better to Light a Candle” columns.
