PCB DESIGN - Flow
PCB Design is the most important activity in the process of designing and making electronic products. The PCB or printed circuit board is the board on which all the components of an electronic circuit are welded. It is designed to support the various components and interconnect them by means of conductive tracks.
The tracks, consisting of thin layers of copper, allow for the passage of electrical signals between the circuit components.
The simplest type of printed circuit board is a non-conductive support (usually vetronite) on which the copper tracks run. When the conductive tracks are on both sides, we have a two-layer PCB. The tracks of the two sides are connected by conductive holes or ‘vias’.
The ‘multilayer’ PCB allows for the highest level of density of the components and typically contains from 4 to 8 layers.
To design a PCB we use special software tools, which allow us to quickly and effectively complete the various phases.
