Through the first contest, we met many excellent makers and they also showed us lots of brilliant PCB designs.

We sincerely welcome new competitors and former competitors to our 2nd PCB Design Contest.

It’s organized by PCBWay, SpainLabs,YoREPARO, and ATMakers.

Our main purpose is to find out the talented electronic engineers and to provide a platform
for them to communicate and learn.
