Oh Sorry for my mistake. You may use Allegro PCB Designers to open the .brd of KIT-050.

Eagle can open some .brd files but the brd generated by Cadence may not be able to be opened by Eagle..

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi Rayan,

As you can see in README.txt in CY8CKIT-050B_Gerber filefolder.

"

Instructions to view gerbers:

  GraphiCode, Inc. provides a freeware gerber viewer, GC-Prevue, available

  for download at te following URL:

  http://www.graphicode.com/pages/products.cfm#_Toc5

  Once this application is installed you can view the *.art files by

  using the "File | Import" function.

  Cypress uses a .art extension for gerber files. Gerber files are ASCII

  text and are easily identified to someone "learned in the art."

"

FYI.

Thanks,

Ryan
