.brd File Extension

Developer: CadSoft
File type: EAGLE Circuit Board File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .brd. Files with the file extension .brd can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .brd files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .brd file?

Files saved in a format with the BRD extension are called EAGLE circuit board files, also categorized as data files, and the EAGLE circuit board design software uses these BRD files. Software that can be used to create circuit board designs are classified as CAD software, and the EAGLE application is an example of these programs. The name "EAGLE" stands for Easily Applicable Graphical Layout Editor, and this program can be installed in a Microsoft Windows system. A version of this software can also be installed in Linux platforms to integrate support for these BRD files. Mac users can also start using the EAGLE program and opening these BRD files by installing a version also developed by CadSoft, creators of EAGLE, for Mac environments. Schematic development features and PCB design functionalities are integrated into the EAGLE software from CadSoft, which can be used by engineers and technicians among other professionals who deal with circuit board technology. The "Layout Editor" implemented into the EAGLE software is used to create and save these BRD files in the .brd format.

how to open a .brd file?

EAGLE has PBC Services which is integrated in the software allows its users to order and obtain quotes for their prototypes from different manufacturers. Its Schematic Editor consists of automated board generation, Electrical Rule Check, Icon preview which is being used for sheets and others. The Layout Editor provides support for full SMD and package variants among the others. Its Autorouter on the other hand, has no restrictions for placements and can provide a maximum of 16 signal layers and the likes.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .brd files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .brd. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
