PCB design

Recommended Posts

Hello, i was given a project in my university which told me to make a PCB design for any imaginary but functional and relatively complicated circuit. I've never done any design of PCBs, and i dont even know what kind of program i should use for this. I would like to ask how is PCB actually designed?

Google for your answer or use search engine Yahoo. It is done in programs like Express SCH Capture and Express PCB then produced at home or sent to board houses. Download Eagle freeware version as it has Tutorials also.

like kbynre said, try a free version of pcb design software. here is the link to cadsoft eagle  (cadsoftusa.com) which also offers a lot of tutorials. i think this may help you out.

While you start designing your PCB, it’s a good idea to make a schematic of your circuit. The schematic will serve as a blueprint for laying out the traces and placing the components on the PCB. For a Beginner in PCB Designing, Start with Simple & user friendly software like Eagle, Proteus etc. The PCB editing software can import all of the components, footprints, and wires into the PCB file, which will make the design process easier. If you are good in circuit reading & drawing, you can easily make schematics in the PCB, through which you can create net-list & make layouts for the circuits.
