PCB101 PCB Design Manufacturing


This is the basic (core) course in the series.
This course is designed for new graduates in Electrical and Electronics field and junior engineers
Anyone who is interested in learning more about PCB


Develop your PCB design skills with a deep understanding of the PCB manufacturing industryWith my 20+ years of PCB manufacturing experience, I will teach you things that would have taken you years to learn at your job.This course is designed for new graduates and new engineers so the topics are explained in a simple manner to the audience. The course covers lots of information and topics which would help you become a good PCB “LAYOUT” designer. These skills go beyond your software skills and abilities.What You Will Learn:Different types of PCBsFile formats used in PCB industryPCB materials and stack-upsDesign Rule ChecksDesign for ManufacturingPCB FINISHSoldermask and SilkscreenArray and PanelizationHow to reduce the cost of your PCBUnderstanding PCB Supplier capabilitiesHow to find a good PCB supplierQuality in PCB Careers in PCB industry (PCB design, PCB manufacturing, PCB assembly)What to expect after finishing this course:You will have a better understanding of how PCB design and PCB manufacturing related to each other and how they affect each other.You will learn how to improve your design to lower the cost of your PCBYou will have a better understanding of career opportunities in different PCB fields.Somewhat understanding of how to read material data sheetsElektroLynx websiteElektroLynx is my hobby website, not a company. On the website, you will find many articles related to the PCB industry. I will upload articles on regular basis. The website is fairly new therefore you may not see many articles right away. The site also has a blog section as well Forums. In the forums section, please feel free to ask and discuss any topic related to PCB.History:26-Jan-2021 – Course released30-Jan-2021 – English captions added16-Mar-2021- Signal Integrity 17-Mar-2021 – Free Software reference for “Saturn Tool Kit”22-Mar-2021 – PCB Design section created
