It’s time to get your electronic project design off the chalkboard and put it in the real world. Getting your schematic from the computer screen or breadboard to Printed Circuit Board (PCB) is the most important part of manufacturing electronic devices, robotics & embedded systems. Moving to a PCB has a wide range of advantages. It makes the final design robust, durable, dependable and replicable. But that’s not to say getting your final design or product to a PCB is smooth sailing. It’s a frequent headache of an engineer, something that works perfectly on the breadboard won’t work on the PCB. So what is the secret behind PCB design???
IEEE BUET student branch is going to unveil the mystery of PCB design on 22 September 2016.
As a beginner in PCB design, taking his/her first steps, we tend to overlook crucial design decisions when it comes to component placement, routing and designing for testability. What we usually do while designing PCB, is place component whimsically and use innumerable via as a result debugging stage takes much time. There are rules and calculations for every step of the process. But at the end of the day, it would seem more like an “Art” than Engineering. We hope that after successful completion of the workshop, you will master the Art of PCB design.
We will start from the very basics. Getting to know the software and terminology then gradually moving to more complex topics. One important factor of product manufacturing is cost optimization.
So PCB cost can be reduced using optimum number of layers and optimizing size. We will also discuss the stage of prototyping and how to design for testability.
The workshop will be day-long and we will design 3pi line follower type PCB which would be a single layer. The first session will cover basics of PCB design and in the second session, we will get to apply the theory on a hands-on design project.
About the team:
Registration will be in Teams. Each team must consist of 2 participants. Each team has to bring a laptop, power adapter, multi-plug and a good mouse is a must.
For IEEE members: 300 BDT per person
For non-IEEE members: 500 BDT per person
Registration Fee payment will be in teams according to the above criteria. After selection procedure you’ll be notified to pay the fee.
