Transform your breadboard project into a professional Printed Circuit Board.

The course will cover schematic design, custom library creation, and production of files to be sent to a manufacturer.
This class is best for people who know the basics of PCBs, but have not necessarily done PCB design. Must be able to read a schematic and understand most of these concepts: electronic components, symbols, packages.
