Abstract: A conformance test module (CTM) for the GenCAM file format is being developed by National Institute of Standards and Technology to support an industry effort to develop the GenCAM standard. GenCAM is a product data exchange standard for information used in the manufacturing of printed board and printed board assemblies. The initial release of the CTM provides level 0 testing for the file format. This limited test only checks the syntax of the file. Past experience convinced the GenCAM committee that a CTM is a key requirement for the success for the standard. This prompted the request from industry to NIST to develop the CTM. NIST will release additional levels of testing for the CTM as they are developed.
