Advanced Circuits Offers Free PCB Design Software


Reading time ( words)

Advanced Circuits, the third largest PCB manufacturer in the United States, created PCB Artist to provide a free design solution that makes the process faster and helps customers find potential mistakes before moving onto prototyping or production. 

Designing a brand new PCB for your next project is exciting, but can be challenging if you do not have the right tools, which is why Advanced Circuits wants to make it easy with their high tech free PCB design layout software, PCB Artist. PCB Artist is very well rated and will not cost users a thing.

How Quality Design Software Helps the PCB Production Process
Using quality, professional-grade software like PCB Artist helps designers turn their new idea into a tangible product. The FREE PCB Design Software has helped facilitate a faster and simpler process for all design engineers creating their PCB Designs. PCB Artist includes a Multi-Page Schematics, a configurable Auto Router, and other great features found in other expensive PCB Design software options on the market. 

The free library for PCB Artist has more than half a million parts and allows users to create PCB Designs up to 28 layers. It also includes a powerful Part Creation Wizard, as well as design rule checks and reports. This helps spot errors, ensuring customers will not waste their time and money with designs that ultimately will not work. 

Users Enjoy an Intuitive Design Interface
A stand out feature of PCB Artist from Advanced Circuits is how intuitive and easy-to-use it is for customers. It can be used by those with experience in designing printed circuit boards, as well as someone who is still learning. The interface is easy to understand and it includes a user’s guide that is available for download with a variety of tips, tools, and video tutorials.

Chapter 2 Excerpt from the Book ‘Thermal Management: A Fabricator's Perspective’

12/21/2020 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
Insulated metal PCBs (IMPCB) or metal-clad PCBs (MCPCB) are a thermal management design that utilizes a layer of solid metal to dissipate the heat generated by the various components on the PCBs. When metal is attached to a PCB, the bonding material can either be thermally conductive but electrically isolative (IMPCBs or MCPCBs), or in the case of RF/microwave circuits, the bonding material may be both electrically and thermally conductive. The reason that RF designers usually have the bonding material thermally and electrically conductive is that they are using this not only as a heat sink but also as part of the ground layer. The design considerations are quite different for these different applications.

Happy Holden: ECWC15 Virtual Event a Success

12/15/2020 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
This is the first Electronic Circuits World Convention that I have not attended in person since 1978. To refresh your memory, these are held every three years on a rotating basis. The HKPCA hosted this year’s conference and they kept up the fine tradition of collecting outstanding keynotes, nearly 60 technical presentations and myriad poster papers. HKPCA was also kind enough to provide English slides and translations. It is still possible to sign up and view the presentations. I have listened to 20 of the presentations, and hope to attend even more in the coming days as they are all worth watching.
