What is Digitizing

Digitizing is the process of converting physical PCB films or drawings into digital files, specifically Gerber files. This involves scanning the films or drawings and utilizing software or techniques to transform them into a digital format that can be utilized for further design or manufacturing purposes. The objective of digitizing is to create a digital representation of the PCB, enabling easier manipulation, editing, and reproduction of the design. By digitizing the PCBs, it becomes possible to utilize CAD software and other digital tools for PCB layout and fabrication. This process is commonly employed in the PCB industry to modernize and streamline design and manufacturing processes, as well as to facilitate the archiving and reproduction of older PCB designs.
