What is a BRD file?

A BRD file is a CAD file created by EAGLE, an application used for schematic capture and PCB design. It is created with the EAGLE Layout Editor and used for developing design templates for circuitry. BRD files can be saved in the Gerber drill data format, which may be used by CAM (computer aided manufacturing) programs.

NOTE: Autodesk EAGLE was formerly known as CadSoft EAGLE. The software was acquired by Autodesk in 2016. EAGLE is short for "Easily Applicable Graphical Layout Editor."
