ASM 600 is a bidirectional translator between GDSII stream and Gerber. It is useful for generating photoplot artwork from CAD packages that read and write GDSII such a Tanner's LEDIT, Design Workshop 2000 and others.

ASM 600 includes a reverse translator (GBR2GDS) and also a GDSII Viewer and a Gerber viewer.
