Lay Out a Circuit Board

Introduction: Lay Out a Circuit Board

This is a brief video tutorial on PCB layout in Diptrace.  If you're thinking of designing a circuit board, you might find it useful.

This is the second part of a multi-part series - the first video (on schematic capture) is right here. Of course, let me know if you've got any questions!

    Excellent - This is growing into a really useful series of videos. I use DipTrace for schematics and have played around with board layout but have never gone the full cycle through to the board production stage. I can guess what will be covered in later videos and I am really looking forward to them. (The autorouter is a wonder to watch!)
