PCB Design Workshop

The following pages are a set of content that I have prepared for a workshop that I have instructed at SVSU for 2 sessions. The topics I cover include:

  • Basic schematic design
  • Board construction techniques
  • Routing Techniques and tools
  • Conductor property calculations
  • Getting boards manufactured

The workshop involves a discussion on The NI Circuit Board Design Suite, as well as a step by step design process for making a power supply circuit board. Then attendants are given a custom measurment circuit design, and are given the opportunity to apply their new skills to design a circuit board during the workshop.

A special thanks to IEEE Student Chapter for sponsoring the event and providing lunch.
