Monday, March 5th, starting at 7:00pm, I will be hosting a printed circuit board design workshop.
The cost will be $5 for non-members, or free for members of the Vancouver Hack Space. This is still slightly unpolished will be capped at 6 people.
We will be starting the creation of a PCB based on pre-existing schematics. The project is a Larson Scanner.
Recommended experience level: Maybe put together a breadboard circuit once.
We’ll go over:
What a PCB is
Tech details and gotchas
Manufacturing and ordering
Your recommended skill level:
- Comfortable with computers and technology in general
- Seen PCBs before and know approximately what they do
- Some soldering?
Upverter will be the PCB design package of choice for this workshop. It’s nice because it’s relatively intuitive, capable, free, and cloud-based.
Please create an account and do the tutorial before showing up, and then bring your laptop and a mouse on the night. It’s painful to do PCB design with a trackpad.
I’ll post an Eventbrite account in a few hours for the non-VHS exposure. Post here to sign up.
