Almost everyone who builds or experiments with electronic circuits develops an interest in making printed circuit boards. Devices built on pc boards are small, lightweight, simple to troubleshoot and repair, and easy to duplicate - qualities that professionals and hobbyists alike can appreciate. This is a learn-by-example guide for entry-level technicians, students, and experimenters who want to learn how to build their own high-quality pc boards. Janet Axelson takes readers step by step from schematic diagram to finished project, demonstrating how to draw circuit designs, transfer artwork to pc blanks, etch copper patterns, drill lead holes, solder components, and repair and modify boards. Some of the topics addressed include how to use computers and photography to design circuits, how to make double-sided boards, how to choose and use photoresists, and how to safely handle and dispose of etching chemicals. Axelson carefully selects her methods throughout to ensure simplicity, low cost, and speedy construction.
