How Is PC Board Designed In KiCad

There are many free and open-source PC Board [1] design software packages out there, but KiCad has become one of the more popular ones due to its combination of low cost and flexibility. As with most design software, it does take some practice to learn how to use it, which is why we created this guide on how to design PCBs in KiCad. Whether you’re just getting started or want to review your skills, this guide will get you up and running quickly, allowing you to create your first PCB in no time.We’ll walk you through starting a new project, designing ...

Printed Circuit Board Routing Practices after Auto Routing

In electronic design, PCB routing is the positioning of conductive pathways on a printed circuit board before final soldering and interconnection. The purpose of PCB routing is to have an arrangement where signal traces connect electrically to components and other signal traces while avoiding the signal crosstalk and maintaining short electrical paths between the components. You can have a manual PCB through computer-aided design software or the use of specialized routing hardware, such as manually controlled routers or auto-routers. How To Reset Your Board After Auto Routing If you’ve used an auto-router, but you’re not happy with its results, you can fix it ...

Design Elements Influencing SMT Assembly

Smart devices should perform well to satisfy consumers who want high-density devices. The Surface mount technology or SMT helps develop high-end electronics. The process of SMT involves soldering which goes through different problems due to PCB pads, reflow technology, stencil design, quality of the soldering paste, and different technical parameters. SMT manufacturing involves many challenges and different design elements influence it. The supplier needs Gerber files and design data for the placement of components. Gerber files help configure different SMT manufacturing machines and develop stencils for placing the solder paste on the circuit board. The manufacturer and designer should discuss the ...

DFM Issues in PCB Design

You need a well-designed PCB for the effective functioning of the device, and you can have it by focusing on the DFM or Design for Manufacturing. Different requirements are there in terms of PCB design, management, and fabrication that you have to follow. At the same time, you should consider the timeline to have a circuit board within your budget. PCB and DFM Issues Having well-executed CAD tools is easy, but these tools cause certain DFM issues which need lots of effort to solve. Sometimes a PCB is correct in terms of electrical requirements, but it is hard to manufacture because you ...

Significance of Copper Coating in PCB Design

Printed circuit boards have a certain unused area, which is coated with copper known as copper coating or filling. There are several benefits of copper coating and one of them is to minimize the impedance of ground wire, as well as enhance the anti-interference and power supply, and minimize the voltage droppings. The copper coating also helps prevent the deformation of a PCB during soldering. However, you have to manage copper coating properly to avoid certain issues that we will discuss here and find ways to resolve. PCB has wirings distributed capacitance regarding high frequencies. The designer knows that when the length ...
