Gerber is used in PCB fabrication data. PCBs are designed on a specialized electronic design automation (EDA) or a computer-aided design (CAD) system. The CAD systems output PCB fabrication data to allow manufacturing. This data typically contains a Gerber file for each image layer (copper layers, solder mask, legend or silk...).

I have a PDF file with a pcb layout that I am planing to produce, but Gerber format is what we want. Do you know easy way to convert?

You can ask the company that did the layout for Gerbers or CAD originals. Most companies that sell evaluation boards for their chips will do this.

Normally there is no direct way, but you could convert the PDF file to Postscript by printing it to a file, using a Postscript driver.Because some pcb fab can work from Postscript files instead of Gerber file.

As a set of gerber files contain more information than the average PDF, for example drill sizes and parameters of vias.So it is impossible to convert directly.
