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.

We have all attended too many Zoom meetings that are not engaging, and it is easy for virtual events to fall into this stereotype. However, after attending this one I am a full supporter of the virtual format and hope the IPC considers a hybrid format for future conferences!
