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

PCB design process flow involves:

  • 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)

Once all the above requirements are fulfilled, our team will provide PCB manufacturing and PCB assembly quotation and procure parts from our approved vendor list.

PCB Capabilities

EDA / CAD / CAM Tools and Software for PCB Design

Our designers use the following licensed tools and software for designing the PCB Layout Design:
  • Altium Designer
  • Mentor Graphics – PADS
  • Cam 350
  • Eagle
  • Genesis 2000

PCB Design Checklist

To meet your required specifications and to optimize your design to be cost-effective and reliable. We have prepared a PCB design checklist that will help you in providing the details before handing over your project to our PCB designers to meet all your requirements:

Step 1: Define the Circuit Requirements

You must clearly define the power distribution, signal integrity, and components requirements, i.e., the number and type of components, along with the following data:
  • 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

After defining the requirements of the circuit, it is essential to determine the mechanical dimensions. The following information must be provided in this step:
  • PCB shape and size
  • Critical component placements (if any)
  • Mechanical constraints of the final product (if any)

Step 3: Define the critical design constraints

Determining the critical design constraints is important before progressing with component placement and routing. The following information must be provided in this step:
  • 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

After completing all three steps, it’s time to determine the expected layer count. Our designers propose the stack-up based on your design for your approval.

Step 5: Final review of requirements and quotation process

Once our designers receive and complete all the requirements, our sales team provides a final quotation and project completion lead time based on the design requirements.

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.
