IEEE Concordia PCB Tutorial Part 1

March 29, 2023 @ 10:30 pm - March 30, 2023 @ 12:30 am

Ready to take your circuit designs to the next level? IEEE Concordia brings you: Printed Circuit Board Design using KiCad! What is PCB design? PCB design is the placement of components and their connections inside a delimited space using a computer-aided design software. IMPORTANT INFORMATION – No previous experience required. – For this event, you have to bring your own laptop. – Download KiCad BEFORE the tutorial, you can get your free copy at https://www.kicad.org/download/ In this two-part PCB tutorial series, you will learn how to design a printed circuit board (PCB) starting with the schematic drawing of your circuit. Part 1 will focus on creating the schematic diagram, which is the foundation for the layout and design of your PCB. PART 1 – INTRO TO SCHEMATIC DESIGN: – Introduction to PCB design – Overview of the schematic diagram and its importance in PCB design – Creating a new project and adding components to the schematic – Connecting components using nets and wires – Adding labels, values, and annotations to the schematic – Checking the schematic for errors and fixing them – Generating a netlist and saving the schematic file By the end of part 1, you will have a complete schematic diagram of your circuit design, ready to be imported into a PCB layout software for the next step in the PCB design process. Stay tuned for part 2, where we will cover PCB layout and routing!
