Online Advanced PCB Layout Course, by Motherboard Designer

Hi, I am thinking to share my knowledge from motherboard and processor board design. Would you be interested?

What & How will you learn

You will learn how to do Advanced PCB Layout (CPU, DDR3, PCIE, SATA, Ethernet, …).

You will be practising the layout by actually doing it. All the important things will be explained in the tutoring videos. You will be practising layout on a real project.

Layout Examples from the course

Content of the course

  • Placement (CPU, memories, power supplies, connectors, protection, …)
  • Layout & Power distribution planning (how and why to place the key components certain ways)
  • Fanouts and Placement under CPU / FPGA (how to do placement and fanout in hight density areas)
  • DDR2 / DDR3 memory layout (how to do memory layout)
  • General Layout (tips and tricks)
  • Stackup (how to choose and design High Density Interconnect HDI stackup)
  • Impedances (how to calculate impedances)
  • High speed design rules (how to do layout for PCIE, SATA, USB, LVDS, SDVO, … )
  • Finishing & Improving Layout (power distribution, power planes, improving individual nets)
  • DDR2 / DDR3 Memory length matching (important parameters & how to do the length matching)
  • PCB checking (final PCB checking)
  • Generating manufacturing documentation (how to generate professional output documentation)

About Instructor
Robert Feranec (37), started designing advanced boards during PhD study. He designed his first Linux OS running board in 2002 and his first x86 board in 2004. Next 5 years (2005-2010), Robert spent in the UK designing processor boards. Since 2010 he has been working for different clients around the world as an independent contractor. Robert’s skills and knowledge are in designing Schematic and doing PCB layout for advanced digital boards such motherboards or processor boards.
