JLCPCB.COM – EAGLE GERBER EXPORT AND QUICK PCB REVIEW




We recently placed an order on JLCPCB.com for 5 pieces of a PCB design we have done here at electronics-lab.com. The project we were dealing is a 60V to 5V @ 3.5A buck converter based on TPS54360B and we are going to publish it soon under Projects -> Power. The PCB design has 2 layers and was done on Autodesk Eagle. In this post we will discuss, how to export the Gerber files from Autodesk Eagle, how to place an order on JLCPCB, how much was the delivery time, unboxing of PCBs and quality inspection.

Autodesk Eagle Gerber Export For JLCPCB.Com

The Gerber export was straight forward. All we have to do is to hit the “CAM Processor” button, make sure “template_2_layer.cam” is loaded, then select “Gerber” on the list at the left and change Output Type to Gerber RS-274X. After that, click on the “+” sign below left list and select “New Gerber Output“, change the Name and Description to “Vias” and add “Vias layer” on the list below. Check export as Zip, then Process Job and save the output file to your preferred location. You should get a message “Job Processed Succesfully“.

If you want to go the fast way, you can download JLCPCB.zip which contains all the necessary changes for the CAM Processor in a single .cam file. You just have to load it by clicking “Load Job File” and process the job.
