PCB design is the precursor to integrated circuit design, both of which are required in almost all electronic devices. Today there is a shortage of new designers and the industry is beginning to suffer. This shortage is due in part to the lack of educational avenues and materials, such as text and reference books such as this one. The industry itself lacks documentation, standards and reference material.This book is geared to the new designer that wants to learn all aspects of Printed Circuit Board design from the ground floor. From the circuit concept, through the design process, to manufacturing of the board and assembly of components to the board, PCB Designer's Reference contains all…
