PCB file I/O, layout, visualization, Gerber file generation

Use the objects and functions in this category to:

  • Read printed circuit board (PCB) designs and specifications from Gerber files. You can then visualize and analyze the PCB design and specifications using the functions in Analysis and Verification.

  • Write the PCB design and specifications into Gerber files.

  • Convert PCB components into RF Toolbox™ circuit object using pcbElement.
