Create manufacturing-ready footprints & 3D models with Autodesk Library.io
If you ever made a PCB, you quickly realized that the component library of the PCB design software is usually pretty limited for such sophisticated programs. Usually, one has to resort to external tools to access the schematic symbols, footprints and 3D models, or design our own in the...Continue Reading
Design considerations for transferring a breadboard prototype to custom PCB
In Sayanee's Basu's video, we can look at the design considerations in the process of taking a breadboard prototype to a custom PCB, from the microcontroller to the various subsystems, to the power, the bootloader, and even how to deal with faulty components. A breadboard can be...Continue Reading
