Initially PCBs were designed manually by creating a photomask on a clear mylar sheet, usually at two or four times the true size. Starting from the schematic diagram the component pin pads were laid out on the mylar and then traces were routed to connect the pads. If you have many questions of PCB Design, please come here!

Is anyone one involved in PCB engineering can use Autocad?

I don't think anyone would use AutoCAD for PCB layout, because there are so many programs dedicated to electronic design and PCB layout that will work on PCs, MACs and Linux.


With more than 20 year's experience of PCB design, I used AutoCAD as a PCB design tool, but at the time I don't think there were any other readily-available ECAD tools that would run on a PC.
