With ever changing PCB design rules you can reduce some of your headaches by working with your PCB manufacturer. When getting them to make your boards, if you discus your design / requirements mistakes can be removed before they occur. Knowing what their design rules are, minimum standards etc you can increase the output and decrease the lead times. Our short PCB videos are here to help you make those changes at the design stage.
Check out our YouTube channel, PW Circuits – YouTube, or watch our informative videos below. Helping you with your PCB design and manufacturing processes so you can receive the right board for the right price, first time, every time.
Subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss out on all the informative new videos we plan to add. It’s always great if you leave us feed back in the videos comments or contact us directly. If you want to see a particular video detailing PCB design in regards to PCB manufacture let us know. We can review your suggestion and create a video to help everyone else streamline the design and manufacturing processes.
