CAD Interfaces

TRM is independent from individual formats of electronic CAD vendors. Import works (!) for

  • layout with Gerber files
  • drills with Gerber or Excellon
  • component placement with IDF files
  • netlists with IPC-D-356 files
  • genuine TRM csv or txt files.

Parameters like layer thickness or power loss are added in the TRM user interface or from templates. Components can also be added and moved graphically. If you want to make simple modifications of the trace pattern then add rectangles or circles (made of Cu or FR4) as embedded components. TRM has a built-in interface tool for Altium Designer, which automatically extracts all necessary data including net and pad information. Schematics can be used to transfer current and power.
