Printed Circuit Board Design Process
When you are designing a printed circuit board for a new product or project, the process is a lot more complicated than you think, and it is easily upset your entire plan. Although it seems that all you need to do is use some sort of layout system and schematic capture tool, in fact there are more steps that you will need to go through in order to make sure your PCB comes out exactly as you need. Besides the schematic capture, you also will use other tools during your printed circuit boards design process, covering cable and harness capabilities, thermal analysis, power analysis, EMC/EMI analysis, digital and analog simulation, etc. The above mentioned tools can ensure that your PCBs will have the functionality as you needed and work efficiently in your application.
