Printed circuit board (PCB) design brings your electronic circuits to life in the physical form. Using layout software, the PCB design process combines component placement and routeing to define electrical connectivity on a manufactured circuit board.
PCB design process
The PCB design process begins by converting a schematic diagram into a physical circuit board layout. Then it’s time to put your problem solving skills to the test by placing components within a tightly constrained space.
The PCB routeing process is both an art and a science. Using physical wires, you’ll define electrical connectivity between components on a PCB layout. No two circuit boards are the same, the routeing is what makes your design unique.
Nearly every electronics design exists within a mechanical product. Using ECAD-MCAD integration between EAGLE and Fusion 360 makes it easy to share your PCB design with a mechanical engineer and verify fit in a physical enclosure.
