Internship Programme on Circuit Design Simulation and PCB Fabrication

Date: 15-12-2022 to 24-12-2022

Duration: 10 days

Participating Organization: GIMT-Guwahati

No. of participants: 10

Course Demonstrators: Mr. Abhinandan Kalita and Mr. Tridib Roy

About the Event:

The programme was aimed to provide in-depth knowledge about complete PCB designing using a simulation tool to test electronic circuits in software environments and their fabrication. PCB design software named EAGLE was used. The following content was covered in the programme:

  • Basic Electronic Component Description
  • Schematic Design
  • Component Footprint Design
  • Integrated Library Design
  • PCB Design & Routing (Board Layout)
  • Transferring the Design to Copper Clad (by heat transfer)
  • Etching of PCB
  • Drilling and Component Pasting
  • Soldering of Components onto the PCB
  • Testing and Verification
  • DIY (own design)

A total of 10 students participated in the internship programme. The students enjoyed the hands-on experience and the process of designing the electronic circuit layout, etching techniques, and soldering the components on their PCB. The students were asked to design their circuits (DIY). They demonstrated the working of their design enthusiastically. Feedback about the programme was collected on the final day. The students appreciated the initiative of the IDEA lab team in organizing the workshop. The programme came to an end with the valedictory session. Mr. Abhinandan Kalita and Mr. Tridib Roy (Tech Gurus) have coordinated & executed the internship programme to make it successful in enhancing students’ skill levels.
