Steps Involved in Designing a Rigid Printed Circuit Board

Electronic products are supported by rigid printed circuit boards (PCB) for providing mechanical substrates to the different electrical components of the particular product. A rigid PCB makes use of connective pathways or traces that are etched onto a laminated substrate (non-conductive). Etching of the pathways is done using copper sheets.

Designing a rigid PCB

How to design a rigid printed circuit board:

In order to design a high performance rigid printed circuit board, you will need to follow certain steps:

  • Make use of an inkjet or laser printer to design the circuit of your rigid circuit board.
  • Always make sure to use only a suitable drawing package that is maintained in good condition for the designing of the rigid PCB.
  • Gather the electrical components of your rigid PCB in one place so that it is easy for you to design the PCB in one go.
  • While placing the components on the board of your rigid circuit, make sure to keep enough space between these components to avoid a cluttered and cumbersome design.
  • Arrange the polarized parts of your rigid PCB in such a way that their orientation is the same.
  • Keep enough gaps between the edges of your rigid PCB and the components.
  • Place the heavy components of your rigid PCB on the primary side of the board.
  • Design the elements in such a way that they can be soldered and assembled by hand or automatically based on the size of the rigid PCB.
