What is gts file? How to open gts files?
File type specification:
The GTS file extension is used for one of the gerber files, a format used by printed circuit board (PBC) manufacturing machines to lay out electrical connections such as traces, vis and pads. A Gerber file can also contain information for drilling and milling the circuit board.
Gerber Soldier Mask is a layer that contains a copy of all pads that require soldering. The main purpose of masking is to prevent solder bridging of pads and traces during mass production. There is also an esthetic value to consider. When using surface mount devices it is often necessary to provide a solder mask layer for both the Top and Bottom of the board as there will be differences in pad locations between sides where SMT devices have been added. In the graphic for this example the white space would be where the mask ink, dry film or liquid photo image-able (LPI) material would remain. The brown areas would be left as exposed metal.
