Revision as of 14:45, 27 September 2020

PCB layout and design has some basic rules, good practices and rules of thumb however it is a highly creative and individual process.[1]

Methods

PCB layout design is possible with tape and dry transfers, or permanent marker pen however EDA software will offer schematic capture, PCB layout, ERC (electrical rule checks), DRC (design rule checks) and other features such as simulating the circuit with SPICE.[2]
