Printed Circuit Board is can be termed as the brains of most modern systems. This makes Printed Board Design to be one of the most important part of modern day system design. Most modern day Board Designs require very high level of integration! This improves on compactness, signal integrity among other advantages. This high level integration in Board Designs and manufacturing also means that if the Printed Board gets damaged, it becomes more expensive to repair it than to do a new Board Design and have it printed afresh by a professional Chinese company such as wellpcb.com.
Having known the long term impact of Board Design, it should be done with lots of care and professionalism. This starts with the professional Board Designer having the right tools. For a great Board Design, you must have a professional Board Design software and you must put together a working Circuit Schematic for the Board Design you are coming up with, and finally, lay down the Board Design and get it manufactured and tested by professional companies. When doing your Board Design, pay attention to all details. These details include: the number of layers that the board should have, the resultant signal integrity from the settled Board Design, the top and bottom silkscreen, solder mask, description of the metal layers involved, X-Y coordinate component map, dimensional and features description of the Board Design, the Assembly description of the whole Board, a hole drill description, drill legend and netlist. A good Board Design shall have all these details inform of a file that contains all the needed details in a standard format.
