An intelligent format for transferring PCB design data to manufacturing
ODB++Design saves time and effort compared to legacy formats, and produces higher quality data for manufacturing.
ODB++Design is the same ODB++ format created in 1995, which has more than 70 software development partner companies supporting it. The name change reflects the incorporation of two additional ODB++ formats, ODB++Process and ODB++Manufacturing to form the ODB++ Family, enabling digitalization of the entire electronic realization process from concept through production.
ODB++Design is the leading intelligent PCB manufacturing data format. Unlike the “Gerber” format which requires multiple files and lengthy re-engineering by the manufacturers, ODB++Design is a single folder with all the data necessary to fabricate and assemble your PCB.
All CAD software on the market today has the capability to use the ODB++Design output format. Access to the ODB++Design format specification is free of charge, as are the ODB++Design Viewer, ODB++Design Inside application and technical support for all of the above, as well as additional resources.
