Course Description

This course covers the design of printed circuit boards using ORCAD Software package, and will provide participants with an insightful training on PCB design from practical and industrial perspective. Moreover it will show them how to design boards more effectively and produce professional results. It provides tips and tricks to help in designing motherboards, processors and microcontroller boards which work for the first time. This course contains the required information needed to understand where to place components, SMD, and Through-hole technologies as well as manufacture specifications and requirements, circuit routing, schematics and design testing.  By the end of the course, participants will learn how to create professional manufacturing output files for their boards.
