How To Workshop: Make a Circuit Board

6:30pm 26th January 2011

Get the basics of PCB (Printed Circuit Board) manufacture from Nottinghack’s Matt Little (from our Soldering & Drawdio Workshops).

There are many processes and techniques for making a printed circuit board (PCB).
In this session Matt will guide you through his process for making PCBs

Matt uses a mixture of home-made and bought tools. He will highlight some of the problems and share some of the tips and tricks he’s uses.

You will get to create and keep a circuit board for a simple LED flashing circuit (components included).

The circuit board layout is made using the open source software called KiCad (for both Linux and Windows). If you have a (small) circuit you would like created then bring along your completed PCB design and we can make that with you!

Make Stuff at Hackspace It’s FREE!

Hackers are people who have very few things in common except … they want to make stuff……. share knowledge and learn new skills… it’s more than electronics and robotics we dabble in art, shed-chemistry, backyard ballistics, programming, woodwork, kite flying, engineering, knitting, homebrewing, problem solving, prototyping…

Hacking is about taking control of the things in your life and knowing how to make them work for you, from fixing your bike to jail breaking your iPhone.
