Improving PCB Design with Advanced Circuits' PCB Artist


Reading time ( words)

Advanced Circuits' free PCB layout software PCB Artist has become a favorite not only with engineering students but also advanced engineers due to its easy schematic-to-PCB layout, Gerber format, autorouter, and extensive library of over 500,000 parts.

The company's website features the PCB Artist Tutorial Manual, which provides the step-by-step instructions from creating the schematics of the PCB, converting the schematic to PCB, and using the software’s PCB Design Editor. There are also links to video tutorials for the PCB design software, including a seven-part series with step by step instructions.

Moreover, users may order their boards right from the PCB Artist design software, making it fast and convenient.

About Advanced Circuits

Advanced Circuits has been an early pioneer in offering instant online web quoting, ordering, and status tracking; taking a giant leap forward with the introduction of FreeDFM, a free pre-order file-check service that has become an indispensable tool for engineers to avoid design errors and fabrication delays. With FreeDFM, users may upload their files and, within minutes, will receive a detailed quote along with a graphical report identifying any file design issues. All orders at Advanced Circuits receive a detailed design file review by the company's large CAM engineering staff prior to fabrication, unlike some “no touch” shops. With this value-added service, customers can quickly fix any PCB design issues as soon as possible.

PCB Cooling Strategies, Part 1

01/19/2018 | Bin Zhou, EDADOC
With the development of communication and IT industries and the ever-increasing demand for information analysis, many chip makers have racked their brains trying to provide customers with better technology, such as increased computing power and storage capacity of chips as well as diversifying their product offerings.

Streamlining Thermal Design of PCBs

01/10/2018 | Dr. John Parry, CEng, Mentor
When designing a PCB, thermal issues are often locked in at the point of selecting and laying out the chip package for the board. After that, only remedial actions are possible if the components are running too hot. Assumptions made about the uniformity of the airflow in these early design stages can mean a disaster for the commercial viability of a PCB if those assumptions are incorrect. A different approach is needed to improve reliability and to optimize board performance. Dr. John Parry of Mentor explains.

Mike Jouppi Discusses his Drive for Better Thermal Data

01/12/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
If you mention thermal management in a group of PCB designers and design engineers, Mike Jouppi’s name usually pops up. Mike is an engineer and founder of the Thermal Management LLC consulting firm. He spent years updating IPC’s charts on current-carrying capacity, which had been unchanged since the 1950s. I recently caught up with Mike and asked him to give us his views on the state of thermal management, as well as the tools and standards related to thermal design.
