5. PCB Layout

posted Feb 3, 2010, 9:45 PM by Bill Bai   [ updated Feb 5, 2010, 6:20 PM ]
After much elbow grease and hard work, here is the final PCB layout with all copper and silkscreen layers.  I placed all the components and routed all the traces by hand.  It was rather tricky and tedious at first, but I soon worked out a method to my madness.  As you will probably notice in the top and bottom copper later close ups below, I tried to route all my horizontal traces on top and all my vertical traces on the bottom layer.  The work was complicated by the amount of IC's required to implement the auto-ranging functions.  This resulted in a huge amount of vias, but it simply couldn't be avoided.

Here's the final 'Design Status Report' generated by PCB Artist.
