About the Workshop

Printed Circuit Board are essential part of a electronic connections to generate a mechanical support as well. Conductive tracks, pads and other features etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate to connect capacitors, resistors or active devices which are generally soldered on the Printed Circuit Board. In an era where technology evolves fast, you need to keep up with the new printed circuit board trends.  We can’t rely upon bread board for substantially increased number of components and for smaller packaging sizes of Integrated circuits that’s makes PCB more essential. It is more of an art then just science with lots of scope for designer. During this three-day workshop, you will learn how to meet your performance requirements using CAD systems and EAGLE software to layout your boards better. Moreover, hands on training on the PCB prototyping will be provided on the PCB prototyping machine.

Opening 

The training workshop was opened at 9:30 a.m. with a welcome statement by the Co Ordinator Asst. Prof. Oinam Mnganleiba Meetei, stated about the importance of Workshop. followed by the statement of HoD Asst. Prof. Haobam Jaillendro Khuman. Finally, he wished all participants a good and successful training workshop.
