CAD Data Formats

The list below provides the CAD Data Formats required. Typically, the physical design (CAD) system will be able to generate an ASCII output that can be processed. If you require assistance on how to generate the required CAD file from your system contact us and provide the name of the design system used and what version.

Please note we can process the ODB++ output. However, when possible we try and avoid using this type of file as useful test information can be lost in generation of this file depending on the design system used.
