Hi, everyone, Happy New Year.

I have a simple question about Proximity-coupled Patch Antenna. I have done some simulations in IE3D with two-layer substrates. I am wondering about the fabrication:

1. What kind of file do I need to send to PCB house? I am wondering can I just send the Gerber file without PCB drawing software?

2. Can the PCB house make this kind of Antenna board, how much does it usually cost?

As a PCB Manufacturer, I perfer ODB++ or Gerber 274-X. The ODB++ format is optimum because there is no guessing on my part for the buildup of the board. Extended Gerber or 274-X is the next perfered, that has all apperatures embedded in the files. Also just ask the company you want to use and also look at their web site, they usually have the requested format listed somewhere.

Hopefully this helps.

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
