.rou File Extension

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

what is a .rou file?

The Gerber Route File is stored in the ROU format and is affixed with the ROU extension and is used by Gerber. These ROU files are generally classified as data files that contain routing data in standard Gerber format used in printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing. They also include plating and count information about the drilling tools used to create the board. The Gerber software is used by printed circuit board (PCB) industry. This software can be downloaded for free and it has two versions, the RS-274X ("extended Gerber" or X Gerber) and EIA RS-274-D ("standard Gerber"). The extended Gerber superseded the standard Gerber and these formats are already owned by Ucamco, PCB CAM software and laser photoplotters developer. There are several routing methods available such as top, bottom and the silk screen top. The two most important components of your Gerber routing system are the tool or bit used and the collet that holds it

how to open a .rou file?

Launch a .rou file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .rou file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .rou files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .rou file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .rou file will open the correct application.

Altium Designer

Altium Designer

Altium Designer is a type of EDA or ECAD software, which stands for electronic design automation that refers to tools that can be used for designing electronics like integrated circuits and printed circuit boards. Therefore, the Altium Designer is a software for printed circuit boards, but also extended for embedded software design, field-programmable gate array of FPGA software design, and library plus release management automation. One of the features of this software is its schematic capture module, which editing tool on electronic circuits is included that allows a user to manage edit schematic document, component library, and integrate other component distributors for data access and components search. This program also has hierarchical and multi-channel schematics, SPICE mixed-signal circuit simulation, and 3D editing of board. The printed circuit board or PCB design module allows a user or a designer to manage component footprint library, place component, trace routing manually and automatically, multi-channel routing or layout, and others.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .rou 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, .rou. 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.
