PCB Fiducial Markings

This week I tried solving the problem I was facing with putting the FPGA in configuration mode, which I have also explained in my blog last week. The…

New task

I started the week by generating the BOM and also all the Gerber files needed for manufacturing of the board. Something I learned was if there are any…

BOM & Routing

Routing the board was finished last week. However, the ethernet connection looked really messy and not optimized, Ethernet connections were where I started this PCB design with. Therefore,…

Differential Routing in KiCAD

This week I was mostly double checking all the connections and also all the footprints. There were a few footprints that needed to be modified and rerouted. The…

Routing DONE

Finally, I managed to finish the routing of the board. After changing the width of the board and having to move the digital ports to fit the new…

New Task & Routing Continues

This week I was given a new task, in order to carry out this task I had to learn a few new things. First I learned how to…

Layout

This week when I tried to open the project, I faced a number of errors. This was caused because we have upgraded the systems at our office and…

Component Placement & Footprints

This week I spend most of my time assigning the footprints to each component and repositioning all the components on the board so that all the newly added digital…

Schematics Completed

This week I spent most of my time finishing up the schematics. The updated board will have 2 complete SPI and 1 complete UART connection, between the PIC32…

Start PCB Design

This week, after some more reading about the board and the connections and also some more reading on PCB design, I started using Kicad. Which is a very…

Third Week

This week which is my third, here at Aeste, was more about reading and understanding the current board. I started the week by redoing the Board Architecture that…

Designing a new PCB Board

This week I finish drawing my PCB design for a new board using Spartan 6 TQFP packaging and PIC32MZ. Also added a bluetooth module (HC-05) onto the new board….

Last Few Steps to Complete a PCB board

This week I finish up my schematic for a new board. This new board is similar to the previous PCB board that I design, only that this board…

Preparing BOM file

This week I finish up my Schematic and preparing the Bill Of Material (BOM) file for my PCB design. I also study some Bluetooth module to be implemented…

Déjà vu

So…….it seems I am back in Aeste 😅😅😅 My task is to continue the part that was done halfway (PCB board). I started the week by first double…
