PCB layout and design tutorials - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hi,

I've been trying to find material on PCB design and fabrication online but without any luck. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanx again...

Hi,
For PCB layout software and fabrication, try:

www.pcb123.com
www.free-pcb-software.com
www.expresspcb.com

I hope this is what you want - if not, could you be more specific?

Thanks, and
Good Luck!

Hi,

I need to construct a PCB power amplifier (designed to handle PEP of 300W) for a coupling unit topology, which in turn is to be used for Powerline Communication Networks. There are PCB milling machines in my department.

I would like to get some tips on implementing this high power PCB design (this is my first time), any precautions to be observed and useful material online or in the form of books.

Thanx again.. You have been really helpful..

EE major.

Hello EE_Major,

The best advice I can give you would be to go to Freescale website and find out an example for an Evaluation Board (EVB) for an RF Power Transistor :!:

The data sheet of the device usually contains the Bill of Materials of the EVB including components values and also the PCB layout of the board and the substrate it is made of. In many cases, the substrate being used is ROGERS 4003/4350 but there are sometimes exceptions.

You can find a lot of useful information in their website.

Good luck, should you need more information please let me know. :)
