The Corporate Resource Cell (CRC) at Rai University, Ahmedabad recently organized a Guest Lecture on PCB Designing and Manufacturing for the students of B.Tech (EC) & B. Tech (EEE). Mr. Maulik Sanghavi Founder & Director of Embelink Ltd. graced the occasion by presenting his views on the topic.
Mr. Maulik is a professional with experience of more than thirteen years. His main areas of expertise include Circuit designing using micro-controller viz. Microchip PIC16F, PIC18F and PIC24F series, Atmel 89C52 & Texas Instruments MSC series. Software programming for above mentioned controllers using assembly & “C” language. Interfaces viz. I2C, SPI, USART, RF, Infrared, PS2, USB, Ethernet, GSM, GPS, GPRS, Zigbee, WI-Fi, Blue-tooth, GLCD, touch screen etc. Developing product to meet EMI / EMC (IEC 61000-4 series) standards. He shares a strong hand on Validation of PLC, SCADA and Control Panel as per USFDA, UKMCA and 21CFR part 11 rules.
The speaker began an introduction of the topic in a systematic manner. He first discussed a brief overview of PCB Designing, best ways to design a PCB and ways to do it carefully and safely. During the flow of the conversation, the speaker covered a large number of topics like PCB designing, PCB manufacturing, Imperial and metric units regarding the spacing between components in PCB manufacturing, SCADA overview and sighted interesting examples showing the difference between PCB Design and manufacturing, cost of the PCB with the increase in the layers and proper ways to use CAD Software.
The students watched with surprise as a technical topic was being explained in the most simplistic manner and understood the relevance of PCB Design Engineering in modern times along with a soft exposure to the working of different design related software.
