PCB layout viewer app?

Are there any apps that enables viewing the PCB layout design files (gerber files) on mobile phone to tab? I understand that there is a constrain on the size of the files as these are big in size usually, but now a days we are getting phones & tabs with sufficiently larger memory as compared to even the PCs dated 5-10 years back.

with everyone using andriod apps, its high time that some special apps are made for engineering. It will be nice to capture the signal waveform of say clk or some other critical signal during debugging or board bring up and send to your boss for review if he is travelling and he reviews on his smartphone and gives comments.

Some Applications are very nice software design

I found the above listed four applications are very nice software designs with very much sophistications and involvement of many man hours in development of the software.

National Semi application can only be tested if you have hardware supporting the device you have.

My fav is the UNITS program from staticfree.info. It looks like a simple calculator (all you see on the screen is a keypad and display window) but there's the UNITS button, so that you can add units to the numbers and the app will convert among hundreds of engineering and physical units. It even knows physical and engineering and astronomical  constants so you can do things like solarluminosity/c2 to calculate the mass Sun loses to radiate as energy

This article could have done SO much more to showcase all the ways in which tablet engineering apps are being used.

That is a very wide area, infact there are many other sites and magazines are doing the same thing.

Hi,

I think this new application for engineers on google market can be interesting for you (Royal Solver Lite). It is a tool for solving a wide range of equations relating to simple engineering problems "on the go". It was developed by the group of engineers, so it has a features that we always want to have in our pocket: handbook that can solve its formulas, unit free - combine units from diff unit systems as you have them, tables of eng parameters, link the formulas to create the full problem solution.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
