HMC813 EVAL board Gerber Files


My customer is developing their own board using the HMC813LC4B based on the current  Eval board  but they can't open the GERBER files that we show for our  Eval board. 

What app do you use for layout?  How can my customer open these files since they use Altium, we can open the files let's say with a viewer but is there a way we can get the source files so they can import into Altium?.


We use Altium Designer here ver 21.3.

  • The Gerber files opened ok for me, using the public domain reader ‘gerbv’, a simple and easy to use Gerber viewer:

    Analog Devices will typically use Cadence or PADS PCB layout tool. 

    Typically CAD EDA source files are NOT interchangeable from vendor to vendor. But fortunately this is not a dense or sophisticated PCB layout. We recommend customer simply recreate the layout in Altium. Trace and pad dimensions can be extracted from the Gerbers.   -Bruce H.
