What do you want to do with the gerber file? Most gerber outputted data is in ascii and can be read with notepad or any text editor. If you want to view the gerber data there are free viewers on the web ie: gerbv.sourceforge.net Hope this helps.

I ahve been using Pentalogix ViewMaster PLUS. Cost about $1k. It's a little tough to use but does a pretty good job for the price.

GerberGrab does exactly this, and it's low cost, and you can use it for a month for free. It is a sophisticated but easy to use reverse engineering tool which will automatically generate top / bottom BOMs with placement and rotation after teaching of one instance of each of the shapes. It has many other features, such as the ability to load a scanned image of the board as a background for cross checking of the Gerber / Bom and placement list / physical PCB. It also handles HPGL2 input / output.

Please visit http://www.gerbergrab.co.uk for more information.

Smart Sonic has an entry level component to our StencilScan AOI system called the Assembly Module GT. The Assembly Module GT is low cost and will get the job done. Plus, the Assembly Module GT can be upgraded easily to the other Assembly Module products that include the ability to scan boards, create Gerber data & placement data, ability to scan components and create vision files for placement machines, first article inspection, etc.

There is some information on our web site: http://www.smartsonic.com/assemblymod.html or please contact me if you have any questions.
