PCB Design and Printing

This class will introduce the student to the concept and practice of do it yourself design and building of PrintedĀ Circuit Boards. This class will be taught in two parts the first part will be design and the second manufacturing.


The What

This class is mainly geared towards people familiar with breadboarding and electronics who are looking to make their projects more permanent. The course is meant to be a crash course to get you started as there is much to learn in both areas. The first part of the course can be taught with one of two software choices. The first of which is EAGLE and the second KICAD. Here the participants will design a basic circuit consisting of through hole components. The second part of the class will be actually printing and etching your board. At the end of the class you will have made your own PCB that is ready for components.
