THE PCB DESIGNING ( as a career option)
The rapid growth of electronics industry worldwide,due to telecom ,automobile,IT and electronic gaming sectors. PCB designing come forward as a hot career option for electronics engineers.
A PCB designer uses computer programs to design circuit boards, where they include integrated circuits( IC )and computer microchips.various PCB layout and schematic software's are available in market . such as ExpressPCB , EAGLE PCB Design , DipTrace- professional etc.without PCB , we cannot imagine a electronic circuit.since a PCB provides physical support as well as interconnections between different electronic components, there exists a great opportunities as well as good growth in this field worldwide. Research & Development departments of electronic companies generally employs PCB designers.
WHAT THEY DO :
- schematic layout
- creation of Footprints
- proper component placement
