PCB file extension - Printed circuit board design

What is pcb file? How to open pcb files?

File type specification:

3d graphics, CAD-CAM-CAE file type icon 3d graphics, CAD-CAM-CAE file type

File extension pcb is generally used for files that contain Printed circuit board data. Formats used in CAD and Gerber programs.

A printed circuit board, or PCB, is used to mechanically support and electrically connect electronic components using conductive pathways, or traces, etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate.

The default software associated to open pcb file:

Altium Designer icon

P-CAD is modeling utility used to cerate PCB (printed circuit board) layouts. P-CAD was discontinued and replaced by Altium Designer.

Help how to open:

You can work with these files in various CAD and Gerber programs, especially those focused on design of printed circuit boards.

How to convert:

Gerber files (Printer circuit board designs) are usually converted or exported to some exchange formats so they can be used in a broad range of electronics design sofware.
