Introduction to DesignSpark PCB

Gain the skills needed to design and create Printed Circuit Board (PCB) artwork in electronic prototypes with this course!

Participants can look forward to creating schematics, components/library creation and PCB artwork design. In addition, participants will also learn about integration with DesignSpark Mechanical using the tools in DesignSpark Mechanical.

Activities will be carried out in small hands-on sessions conducted throughout the course.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • list, identify, and explain the different stages in an electronic product design

  • use common exploratory data analysis (EDA) tools, and circuit schematics

  • create a schematic design using EDA tools

  • list the steps / preparations needed in transferring the schematic to layout design

  • plan and strategise the layout of components on the PCB to optimise board size

  • perform good routing practices during PCB artwork design

  • design a single/ double layer PCB artwork

  • create customised component symbols and footprints

  • create libraries to store customised schematics, PCB symbols and components

  • implement multi-layer PCB to reduce board size and possible interferences

  • implement noise reduction techniques in PCB artwork design

  • explain and list the pros and cons of using surface-mount technology (SMT)

  • understand dimension codes for SMT components

  • generate Gerber files for PCB manufacturing

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for business professionals and individuals keen to learn how to design, list, identify, and implement PCB artwork.

Certification

Participants will be awarded the Certificate of Attendance by Republic Polytechnic upon meeting 80% of the attendance requirement.
