CHAPTER 5

ImagesLaying Out a Printed Circuit Board

In this chapter, you will first look at the various commands available to use when laying out a PCB and then make two example layouts for the bar-code example of Chapter 4. One of these layouts will use a typical hobbyist’s through-hole design. The other will use mostly surface-mount components. In the final section of this chapter, we spurn the help of the autorouter, lay out the same example manually, and compare it with the automatically generated layout.
