Our PCB design service is very flexible. We can take your idea or circuit drawing right through to a fully design PCB and manufactured PCB ready for soldering up with Components. We are happy for our customers to take as active a role in the design process as they wish: we can take an initial brief and independently produce a completed design, or we can work in close liaison with interactive feedback every step of the way.
Firstly, the circuit is drawn up in the software, specifying the components and adding the component footprints. From here we can then convert the drawing into a PCB layout. This example is a Section Switching unit designed for an analogue controlled DC N Gauge layout with 2 loops, a branchline and sidings.
Once we have the Circuit Diagram into the PCB section of the software, we can then layout all the components in the board outline. Then when the board layout is approved and extra items such as mounting holes are located then the Auto Router traces all the tracks to all the components.
Once the PCB files are complete then we can go ahead and manufacture the PCB’s and produce the BOM, order the components ready for soldering
We also offer a full Turnkey service where not only do we design and build the PCB board but also supply all the components and solder up the board.
