Designing a PCB forautomatic assemblyand full production runs requires a few design changes from an initial prototype PCB run Today most PCBs are assembled and tested with automated machines from the data from PCB drawing files With up to 80% of a new product& 39;s cost determined
Let& 39;s face it We all make mistakes, and PCB designers are no exception And contrary to popular belief, making mistakes is ok, as long as we learn from them Here is a quick summary of some common PCB mistakes 1 Choose the wrong PCB design software
