Basic PCB Design Course using PADS VX

Course Objectives:

PCB Layout Design Engineers face challenges in placing components for EMI, Mechanical and Assembly purposes. Many of them are unaware of the different shortcut keys that can be used to easily navigate within the PADS Environment. In addition, they lack the knowledge to check for errors according to DFT and DFM standards. Through this Basic PCB Design course, PCB Layout Design Engineers will be able to solve these problems. The course provides basic design process flow. Participants will also gain hands-on experience by performing actual layout procedures such as placement and routing and Gerber creation. With a better understanding of the basic IPC standards regarding proper layout practices and requirements, participants will soon be able to design high quality and reliable PCBs.
