What is ODB++ ?

ODB++ is an intelligent PCB data exchange format, capturing all CAD/EDA, assembly and PCB fabrication knowledge in one single, unified database. Originally developed by Valor Computerized Systems for use in its own PCB CAD/CAM systems, Genesis 2000, Enterprise 3000 and Trilogy , ODB++ has already become widely accepted as the de facto industry standard, providing unprecedented power to PCB design, fabrication and assembly, with the flexibility to expand as required. In parallel, ODB++ is providing most of the technological basis for the new IPC2581 standard for data exchange in the PCB fabrication and assembly industry.
