How to design your first PCB (step-by-step tutorial)
We will be building our first project, the most known circuit, which is a two transistor LED flasher. It is a circuit with two LEDs that will blink/flash in turn. This will get you started in designing a PCB from start to finish step-by-step. We will be creating the schematic, components with their footprints and 3D models. We will then route the board, assign board rules and finally, create output in gerber file format with the purpose of manufacturing, and what to take into account when sending your board for manufacturing.
How to create libraries, deploy and use
About how to create libraries, how to deploy them and how to use them. We will talk first about how to create a library project and add references to it. After that we will talk about how to deploy our library and then how to consume, how to use this library. We will not get into details about how to create library items themselves (these are the symbols, footprints, models and components), but about more generic stuff, and how things are organised and the thought in creating a library, deploying and using.
