What are the steps in PCB design?
The input to the PCB design process is typically an electronic schematic and a list of parts that are to be used or the BOM. Modern PCB design is done on software or EDA tools that can be downloaded for free or bought from vendors. The output of the PCB design process is a set of files called Gerbers. These files are used by a fabricator to make the PCBs.
