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.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  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.
