About workshop:

The workshop was conducted in collaboration with Esston Technology, from Pune. The company has a fast growth in PCB designing and Robotics. The company’s Chief Executive Mr. Sunny S. Hapse with Mr. Swapnil V. Agawane and Mr. Tajas R. Shilamkar conducted the workshop to guide the students in learning the technologies of the PCB Design & Simulation. They have taken about 16 hours of theoretical and practical sessions.

Mr. Sunny S. Hapse started the workshop with a very creative introductory session on 24th January 2018. First of all they have given the concepts which will be very helpful for designing the PCB practically, using some power point presentations. In this theoretical explanation part Mr. Sunny S. Hapse explained the Protious 8 and PAD 2 PAD software’s and the use of them for further practical implementation in designing the PCB. They have also given a brief idea about active and passive electronic components which are used in a PCB.

In the hands-on sessions, they have taken example of Arduino board PCB layout along with simulation. Power supply sections of Arduino board was designed and fabricated on 25th January 2018.  The board was drilled with holes where the components were placed; the holes The hole should be in the size so that the terminal has to be freely placed in the hole.

The components were placed in the board have been soldered to the track so that the circuit is connected as per the design. After this step the engraved PCB will be ready to use.

Designed circuits were practically tested by means of conductivity and continuity of copper tracks, components placing and actual response of circuits was tested on multimeter.
