This course is targeted at the professional (engineering manager, marketing personnel, purchasing agent, materials engineer, mechanical engineer, new electronics engineer) who is not familiar with printed circuit boards (PCBs) but would like to become familiar with the basics of the process of designing and procuring prototype PCBs.

This course will provide the student with knowledge of the constituent parts of a printed circuit board, PCB design considerations, and the process of procuring prototype PCBs. The student will also be introduced to various vendors that can provide inexpensive or quick-turn PCB prototypes. In addition, the student will also learn the types of design files that are required by those vendors to produce prototypes.
