Layout in Pcbnew --- Part 1

Pcbnew is KiCad’s layout editor. Think of it as a drawing program that is specifically designed for drawing printed circuit boards. Pick up a PCB and, and try to identify and list its most important attributes.Your list should be similar to this:1. Components, like resistors and integrated circuits,2. Wires (or traces, as we will call them), that connect the components,3. A board made of fibreglass or similar material, with a particular shape,4. Graphics, like text or drawings, printed on th...

PCB layout tips of DC/DC buck converter

The circuit layout is as important as design when implementing a DC-DC buck converter. Poor layout can seriously reduce the design effect. Now let PCBWay introduce some of the best layout practices.Good goals of circuit layout 1.Control radiation and induced noise2.Reduce interference between different parts of the circuit3.Reduce circuit area4.Effective thermal management5.Improved voltage regulation and circuit efficiency6.Avoid additional "band-aid" circuits such as buffers7.Increase stabilit...
