What You Will Learn

You Will Learn How To:

  • Create a new schematic project and block diagram
  • Place parts, mechanical symbols, and fiducials
  • Wire the schematic, add net aliases, group components for PCB layout, and review the schematic
  • Add schematic notes, set up methods to track revisions, generate a bill of materials and smart PDF
  • Setup the PCB Canvas, import a board outline, place mounting holes, and define the board stackup
  • Create and apply rules in the PCB and communicate design changes
  • Place components on the PCB automatically and manually, improve the placement, and incorporate testpoints
  • Perform 3D visualization and collision detection
  • Route ground, power, critical nets and signals on the PCB
  • Prepare the design for manufacturing
  • Create a fabrication drawing, generate manufacturing deliverables, package and submit your manufacturing files

Course Summary

Incorporating DFM in the Arduino Uno Design is the fourth and final module in this 4 course series. Apply the skills you’ve learned about OrCAD and PCB Design in Module 1, Module 2, and Module 3 to improve the manufacturability of the popular Arduino board. This course will implement extensive Design for Manufacturing (DFM) principles throughout the design process while redesigning the Arduino Uno (Revision 3).
