PCB Design For Manufacture Tutorial (video)

A how-to guide to taking your electronics project from prototype through to high volume PCB manufacture. Covers component selection and purchasing, SMD, DFM, PCB panelisation, gerber generation, drill files, pick and place files, and more.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I noticed he used a picture of your pogo jig(the one with the platic ears)for one of your breakout boards

  2. Hmm. If you use EAGLE (for example. Even the pro versions), some of the things he describes, such as careful and explicit layout of PCB panels, are going to be relatively difficult. Does a PCB (bare board) manufacturer provide any of these features by default as part of their ‘free panelization’ option?

    Also, it seems that a lot of the “cost savings” of going to that sort of effort is going to be very dependent on “negotiations” with your manufacturer; at what quantity do those negotiations start to make sense (it seems unlikely that it would make sense at the “100 board” quantity he kept using as an example.)

  3. Just wanted to point out that he’s using a Hakko 926 in the background. Old school classic.
