EE Times on PCB design

Are you interested in designing your own printed circuit boards (PCBs)? Then EE Times has a couple of things that you’ll be interested in:

  • Webinar: Fundamentals of PCB Design. This free, introductory overview of printed-circuit design treats the main difficulties you will likely meet when planning, designing, and manufacturing printed circuit boards for digital applications. From this lecture you will take away many nuggets of wisdom concerning manufacturing technology, signal integrity, EMI, power quality, thermal analysis, and project management.
  • A Guide to Low-Cost PCB Tools. This short blog post, written by Adam Carlson, Senior Mechanical Design Engineer, Eagle Technologies, lists eight different PCB design tools that are available for free or are low cost.

If you’re already doing your own PCB design, what tools are you using?
