“Make Your Own PCB” Class @ Zahn Center NYC on April 6th

MakeYourOwnPCB

If you are in the New York City area and have been looking to gain the skill to manufacture your own PCBs for the projects you are developing — perhaps on your way to launching a brand new kit or product — then check out the Zahn Center’s upcoming PCB making classes:

WHEN: April 6, 2013 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

WHERE: Zahn Center, Room B20, Steinman Hall, 140th Street and Convent Avenue, New York, NY 10031

COST: $150 (plus fees)

Our first “Make your own PCB” class will be given by PCB designer extraordinaire, Jonathan Hirschman. In this class we’ll be helping you design and build your very own Arduino clone, similar to the one shown. The class is designed for everyone, of all skill levels, with no knowledge of electronics required – just a desire to learn and make.

The class will be given in two Saturday sessions (April 6th and April 20th, from 10am – 6pm). In the first session, you’ll learn about PCB design software, and then you’ll create your own Arduino clone design, and send your design out for fabrication. Two weeks later, you’ll be building and assembling your boards!

Even though this class is newbie friendly, we’ll be doing a pretty deep dive. You’ll learn how to read datasheets, how to design components in the layout software, power and ground planes, even how to make funky graphics. Want skulls and flames on your clone? No problem! We’ll also talk about the different manufacturing shops out there, pricing, location and what are some of their pros and cons. In the second session you’ll learn all about assembly and mounting, and how to correct when the tiny legs on your microntrollers don’t quite line up….
