Manufacturing panel information: the panel file is
an optional file.
It has been added (comparatively to IDF 2.0) to allow the exchange of
manufacturing panel information. The panel file contains the physical
description of the manufacturing panel and the location of the boards and
components on that panel.
Annotations: a new section is added to the file.
It contains notes for the design that can be displayed to allow the
electrical and mechanical designers to communicate additional information
about the design entities. They are not intended for manufacturing
Offset: the offset field represents the mounting
offset for a component onto the board.
It is also available for board mounting offset onto the panel.
Properties: an optional record specifies
properties for the component such as capacitance, resistance, tolerance,
power_max, etc. as well as user-defined attributes.
