4
Footprints
Creating simple and difficult footprints. Importing symbols & footprints from an existing board. The whole process of creating and assigning existing 3D models to a footprint for your PCB design. Importance of 3D models and how they will help you. You will learn about layer descriptions, about the component reference point and finally how to start a new PCB.
5
BOM - Bill of Material
Creating and using variants. Advantages and disadvantages of creating variants and creating BOM. How to create and generate custom professional Bills of Materials (BOMs) and job files to help streamline your production process. About how variants influence BOMs. About special components in BOM or PCB only.
6
Checking
Techniques to properly check your libraries and schematic, ensuring that your PCB design will work correctly the first time. Tools you need to create high-quality PCB designs with minimal errors, saving you valuable time and resources in the manufacturing process. Real life error examples and list of the most common errors in schematic design. Project compilation.
7
Placement
How to start a new PCB layout and how to do proper placement of components. Basic rules for a new PCB layout. Why is it important and how to run Design Rule Check. Tips and tricks to make the process easier and more efficient. Skills to create a PCB layout and placement for your design project. Advantages of the paper model of your PCB.
8
Stackup
About advanced steps and parts of the PCB layout (Memory layout, Fanouts, Routing, Power nets and more). Impedances and Stackup. Designing a PCB layout that meets your impedance requirements and uses the best stackup for your specific application. What topology you should use. Useful tips, such as optimal track width and best workflow system.
9
Finishing PCB
More Stackup tips and setting up a real Stackup. Finishing your PCB, including checking for errors and making sure the design is ready for production. Length matching, and how to ensure that your PCB meets the necessary length matching requirements. Routing modes and autorouting. Adding Stitching VIAs. Checking and optimizing all the nets.
10
Manufacturing Outputs
Generating professional documentation for your PCB design such as assembly drawings and Gerber files. Essential information that should be included for manufacturers. Creating Manufacturing notes, Board outline and Mechanical Drawing layers and more. You will be able to generate all necessary output files to submit to a manufacturer to get your PCB made.
