14 Tips to improve Arduino Schematic and PCB

Here are couple of tips which you may want to consider when you will be designing your own Arduino Uno like board.

Altium Tutorial – Smaller clearance under BGA or Footprint

When you are doing layout, sometimes you may want to use a special rule in a specific area, for example if you have a BGA with a very small pitch, which requires a special clearance rule to fanout the tracks. The simplest way to set the special rule in Altium Designer is to set a clearance rule under a specific footprint. Watch this video to see how to do it.

How to download Altium templates – PCIE card, COM Express and other form factors

Altium has a lot of free templates for different form factors. For example, if you need to design a PCIE card, you don’t have to create it from scratch. You can download it and it will save you a lot of time. Here is the link to the Altium design content website:
