PCB design—it’s not witchcraft!
E-Labs Inside section
For many electronics enthusiasts it’s no big deal selecting the right transistor for a circuit, calculating an appropriate capacitor value or choosing the right logic ICs to perform a particular function when needs must. After this it’s little more effort to knock up the circuit on a breadboard or soldering it up on a scrap of Veroboard. Job done! On the other hand, designing a matching printed circuit board (PCB) is a tougher challenge for many electronics enthusiasts.
