ODB++ Support

TestSight Developer now supports the ODB++ file format.

ODB++ is a printed circuit board manufacturing database containing all the elements necessary to build and describe a PCB. ODB++ is a format based on a hierarchical folder structure. Typically the folders are compressed into a .tgz file. However ODB++ can also come uncompressed, zipped, or as a .tar.

ODB++ is supported by most of the major CAD design/layout packages (Zuken – CAD STAR, Board Designer, Visula – Altium – Protel and PCAD – Cadence – Allegro, OrCAD – Mentor Graphics – Board Station, Expedition Enterprise, Pads) and is a standard input for both electronic manufacturing and CAD design.
