PCB design basics Part 1
What do most electronics engineers enjoy a lot? Designing printed circuit boards, of course! In an irregular series of articles we would like to familiarise you with this subject. We start as simple as possible and it will become more difficult as we progress. Feedback and requests to cover certain topics are encouraged and welcomed! When you’re just designing a small PCB, it often is not that important where the actual components are placed. However, there are a few rules of thumb that, when followed, quickly and easily result in a much better PCB.
