File Type 2Gerber Top Solder Mask Data File
.GTS File Association 2
Data file created by CAD Printed Circuit Board (PCB) programs like Altium Designer and utilized by PCB manufacturing machines to designate electrical connections between components with pads and tracks; contains solder mask data for the top side of boards with multiple layers; includes information about all the pads that need soldering to prevent solder bridging of traces and pads during production; similar to the .GBS file extension.
The name of the GTS file is derived from the name of your PCB. Therefore, if your PCB is called "MyProject," the file will be called MyProject.gts.
Gerber format files, like GTS, are stored in RS-274X format and act similar to .PDF files. They're an exported version of the PCB layout and are meant to be viewed and referenced but not edited.
NOTE: The GTS format was originally developed by Gerber Systems but is now maintained by Ucamco.
