Electronic and electrical modules and subsystems consist of interconnected components which perform tasks and action to meet the aims of the systems of which they form a part. Many of these systems are familiar to us, for example allowing us to switch on and control a television, withdraw money from an automated teller machine (ATM) or display a document like this one on a computer. You can probably think of some other systems we use. Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are the most common means by which these electronic circuits and systems are constructed. In this unit you will learn about the basic techniques involved in PCB design, manufacture and test, and you will also have the opportunity to practice the skills required to produce a PCB. Outcomes 1. Use an electronic design software package to design PCB artwork. 2. Manufacture a PCB. 3. Populate a PCB. 4. Verify the operation of a populated PCB.
