What is a BXL file?
Electronics data file created in Accelerated Designs' BXL format (referred to as the Xlator DataBase format); can specify both PCB footprints and schematic symbols; used for distributing PCB information in a vendor neutral format.
BXL files can be opened by Ultra Librarian Reader and then converted to many other electronics formats for use in different CAD tools. Vendors use the BXL format so that their PCB data can be available in other formats without their having to do the conversions themselves.
