Electronics Production

:blush: Updated for 2020 evaluation standards!

  • Group assignment

    • Characterize the design rules for your PCB production process: document feeds, speeds, plunge rate, depth of cut (traces and outline) and tooling.
    • document your work (in a group or individually)
  • Individual assignment

    • Make an in-circuit programmer by milling and stuffing the PCB, test it, then optionally try other PCB fabrication process.

Learning outcomes

  • Described the process of milling, stuffing, de-bugging and programming
  • Demonstrate correct workflows and identify areas for improvement if required

Have you?

  • Linked to the group assignment page
  • Documented how you made (mill, stuff, solder) the board
  • Documented that your board is functional
  • Explained any problems and how you fixed them
  • Included a ‘hero shot’ of your board


Does the in-circuit programmer need to work to complete the assignment?

Answer: Yes. Your board must be recognized by the host computer and it must be able to communicate with the target board.

Do I have to include NC-files?

Answer: No.
