If you are using a PCB design tool that exports ODB++ and you would like to add it to this list please send an email to steve@artwork.com. If you would like us to test the ODB++ extractor with an ODB++ file generated by your PCB layout application please arrange to send it to me. I will note ODB++ files that have been verified as working with NETEX-O.
