Introduction to PCB Design
PCB (Printed Circuit Board) design creates a physical circuit board layout that interconnects electronic components using copper trace etched onto the printed circuit board. It is a crucial part of electronics manufacturing, which provide a strong foundation for all electronic devices.
PCB Design Process Flow
- Gathering the circuit requirements
- Schematic Design
- Selection of Components (Surface mount technology (SMT) and Through-hole technology (THT))
- PCB Stackup Design
- PCB Layout Design and Placement of Components
- Verification of PCB Design Techniques based on the PCB Design Guidelines (PCB Design for Manufacturing (DFM) and Design for Assembly (DFT / DFA))
- Final Manufacturing files generation (Gerber files, solder mask files, silkscreen files, Bill of Material (BOM), PCB fabrication Drawings, PCB Assembly Drawings, Vias and Drill Data, Design Database)
EDA / CAD / CAM Tools and Software for PCB Design
- Altium Designer
- Mentor Graphics – PADS
- Cam 350
- Genesis 2000
PCB Design Checklist
Step 1: Define the Circuit Requirements
- Schematic Diagram (Softcopy in PDF or hand drawn)
- Bill of Material (BOM) with complete manufacturing part numbers in XLS or Excel format.
Step 2: Define the Printed Circuit Board's mechanical dimensions
- PCB shape and size
- Critical component placements (if any)
- Mechanical constraints of the final product (if any)
Step 3: Define the critical design constraints
- To take care of EMI/EMC shielding and thermal Interface, you need to provide what environment the PCB will place.
- Does the design require Impedance control, high-speed PCB design copper traces, or special requirements?
- Is there any no-go or keep-out area?
- For determining PCB parameters like copper thickness, and cutouts, we will need to know the maximum voltage/current requirements in PCB.
- Any other special instructions which need to follow?
Step 4: Determine the expected layer count
Step 5: Final review of requirements and quotation process
Step 6: Placing your Order
Finally, you’re ready to place the order for PCB Layout Design. Please submit your request to [email protected], and our accounting team will contact you for payment details.
As soon as the payment gets cleared, our team will start the PCB Layout Designing, and once the design gets completed. We will send you the Gerber files (including the solder mask and silkscreen files) and others documents.
