Title: METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CONVERTING PCB FILE TO GERBER FILE
Abstract:
Provided are a method and system for converting a PCB file to a Gerber file, said method comprising the following steps: obtaining a to-be-converted PCB file (S101); identifying the filename extension and design version of the PCB file (S102); according to the filename extension and design version, invoking a conversion software corresponding to the PCB file (S103); opening the PCB file by means of the PCB file conversion software (S104); converting the PCB file to a conversion file comprising a Gerber file (S105); compressing the conversion file, then obtaining a Gerber-file compressed package (S106). After obtaining the PCB file, the filename extension and design version of the PCB file are identified automatically, and a corresponding PCB conversion software is automatically selected and automatically opened; the conversion to a conversion file comprising a Gerber file takes place automatically, then the conversion file comprising the Gerber file is compressed to form a Gerber file compressed package, and is outputted. In contrast to conventional means whereby a PCB file is manually identified and the PCB file is manually converted, the described method for converting a PCB file to a Gerber file significantly economizes human labor and physical resources, and greatly improves operating efficiency.
