Part 2: Using PCB Layout Software: Schematic Capture & Component Libraries

This second class will start with an overview of circuit board layout software. Continuing on with our LED driver, we'll be using freeware to capture the schematic of our design using built-in library components. Then we'll see the real power of the software as the captured circuit is translated into PCB footprints. This allows us to lay down copper traces on the board.
