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. :)

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
