PCB Poster

The end of your study-year is nearing and you still haven't made any PCBs?!

To many it may come as a surprise that PCB layout and assembly are not part of the standard curriculum of Electrical Engineering. This while it's one of the most fulfilling, fun and recognisable parts related to electronics in general.

This is why Scintilla's MasterCLASS is organising a PCB layout and assembly course!
During this course Sintecs BV and Elect BV (Experienced companies in layout and assembly respectively) will be guiding us through the process of going from schematic to physical product by providing presentations and helping us work on a PCB you can take home at the end.

More info will follow shortly.
