Low Cost Fabrication of Highly Reliable Single-sided PCBs
Role: First year undergrad student.
Tools and skills used: Circuit Designing, OrCAD Schematic, OrCAD PCB designing, PCB Fabrication, Photo-plotting, Screen-printing.
I established a Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) lab at my home where I was able to design and fabricate professional single-sided PCBs. This was the first time when I initiated something that brought me to the peak of self-confidence that I can do anything else I am determined to do. This experience of designing and fabricating PCBs led me to enter in our department’s PCB lab where I was honored to facilitate the newly employed technician of PCB Lab and worked on highly efficient and costly machines of fabricating double-sided printed circuit boards. I conducted two workshops on the fabrication of single and double sided PCBs in which I discussed the issues of fault-free designing of PCBs and shared my practical experience of working in my home-made lab. I also wrote an article to disseminate my work in the annual departmental magazine named SPARK.
