Gerber to CAD processing
Gerber to CAD processing is required when CAD files are not provided or not available during testpoint selection for an actual turn-on Job. As there is limited information within the Gerber file, for example Reference Designators and NET information etc, this information is the pre-requisite for testpoint selection processing.
