Number One Systems and Ucamco Collaborate to Fully Integrate Gerber X2 in Easy-PC


Reading time ( words)

Number One Systems. – the PCB Design Software company delivering low cost PCB Design tools has announced the successful integration of Gerber X2 in Easy-PC 19.

Working closely with Ucamco, the developer of the Gerber format, Number One Systems has successfully implemented Gerber X2. Ucamco have fully verified the X2 format in Easy-PC which conforms to the X2 specification.

Ucamco launched Gerber X2 with a single goal in mind: to provide a robust, standardized method for automatically transferring layout data and valuable PCB design information from CAD to CAM. Extended Gerber has always been able to handle the first part; the image data. With Gerber X2, the PCB industry's de facto standard image format is even better. That's because Gerber X2 offers a new format for the additional design data that is clear, unequivocal and automatically machine-readable, and that fully supports the existing Gerber image data format. X2 maintains the trademark simplicity for which Gerber has always been known and used. For further questions you may have regarding Gerber X2, there is a FAQ page on the Ucamco website.

Number One Systems’ Marketing Manager Ty Stephens commented: “delivering the Gerber X2 Format maintains the commitment we have to our valued customers in providing the latest technology requirements in the industry. In Gerber X2, Ucamco have given a format that provides greater transparency and information in the output stage of the PCB design process.”

Ucamco's Managing Director Karel Tavernier states: “Ucamco is honored that a well-respected company such as Number One Systems have implemented such a robust Gerber X2 output less than one year after the release of the Gerber X2 specification. By supporting X2 Number One Systems not only helps its customers to remain abreast of technology, but is also a good corporate citizen helping the whole industry to move along the practical path forward."
