Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are ubiquitous elements of modern electronic systems. In DoD research, PCBs play a vital role in creating reliable, economic, and deterministic circuits, apart from their breadboard or perf-board counterparts. The art of transitioning a circuit’s schematic to a physical, manufacturable board can be challenging, but electrical computer-aided design (eCAD) and manufacturing (CAM) software provides the creator with complete control of the circuit’s design and streamlines the PCB fabrication process.
This presentation serves as a general introduction to formulate a custom circuit schematic and two-layer PCB and process necessary files for design production.
