It has been over a year since we launched our Prototype & Small series Assembly service.

These files are usually generated by the CAD system and output in an ASCII format, the format varies from one CAD system to another however, it is the information contained within these files that is important.
The BOM must contain the information below:
MPN (Manufacturers Part Number) or Supplier Part Number.
Full Description of the Part (including value where applicable)
Component Reference Designations that use this Part.

The CPL file must contain the following information:
