I am just practicing so no issue with single sideWhy single sided. The cost is the same as 2 sided.
as per your suggestion I modified design but still don't know how to keep all components on pcbCan you change the schematic so the layout is clean and the schematic looks like crossed.
Can you explain further?still don't know how to keep all components on pcb
Practice helps. Try to place components to follow the flow of the circuit. Start with inputs to left, outputs to right then play with orientation to minimise crossovers and complex routing. Sometimes it just works, other times you have to try different layouts until one gels.I am totally agree with you Mrchips I can design circuit but I get very frustrated when I try to keep the components on the board. I don't understand how do you know which component should be placed on which position. I think it can be understood only by practicing more
You are correct, only practice will improve your skills. If you really are serious, I suggest that you forget about the automatic tools for a while and try doing it manually for a few simple circuits. Use the circiut diagram as reference and draw the components in a similar arrangement. Then try to connect the different nodes together. You will have to shuffle components around a bit to get everything connected with the minimum of jumpers.I think it can be understood only by practicing more
@Irving you have design a very nice and clean layout. your layout is millions time better than my.Here's a partial version of a better single-sided layout, all tracks on back of board. Viewing from top through board. Despite being only single-sided there's a substantial ground plane.
Of course you can do it without the ground plane, there's just no benefit in not doing so, and modern PCB layout software will put the ground plane in for you, avoiding the existing tracks...@Irving you have design a very nice and clean layout. your layout is millions time better than my.
I know its time consuming but if you have no problem then Can you design layout without substantial ground plane? its only request because I want to see how do you lay down all components without substantial ground plane?
What template did you use (not that I'd use Visio for that)? I have an old version from 1996 (pre-dates Microsoft's acquisition of Visio) that now runs on Win10.here are a couple of circuits I designed using Visio (an older graphics tool from the MS Office Suite)
Good idea.if you have decoupling capacitors these should go right next to the chip and the Vcc trace should hit the capacitor before it hits the chip pin
