I am having an issue opening a .pcb file. I am running PADS Layout 9.5 and when I try to open a design file from NXP I get an error saying "Job not compatible with current version of program!" Also when I try to import the file I get a "file import failed. PADS file not created." error. I have attached the file I am trying to open for reference.
Thanks for any help,
This file in not in a format compatible with PADS Layout. The contents of the file is ASCII data, not the typical binary database for a PADS.pcb. If you view this file in Notepad you will see that the data appears to be some form of a part placement report.
