Print toner traces directly on PCB

Well this sound amazing and scary. Everyone knows that printer toner usually is transferred with special glossy paper and iron, but printing directly… anyway fact is that it is possible and gives amazing results. Author claims and proves that he was able to print 2mill traces what means four traces between two DIP pins. There isn’t any information about how it’s done as other people claim that printers modified as flat doesn’t give even close results. Take a look for more photos in gallery.

The Easy Ways to Design a Better PCB!

Are you always looking for a better printed circuit board (PCB), but you’re failed to do it in most of time? Well, don’t waste your time anymore for the searching; instead, you can use the precious time to design a better PCB here! Before that, most of you have learned that PCB fab houses, such as advanced circuits, Batch PCB, PCB123 and other are quite hard job to do with. Hence, it’s not an easy task, as there are many ways for a fab house to mess it up! Moreover, fab houses tend to spend less time on prototypes than on production runs. To overcome the matter, you should try to design PCBs for manufacturability. The main goal of this project is to show you how to minimize the number if ways the fab houses can screw up a PCB! For avoiding yourself from mess up with the PCBs, you would like to refer to some of the finest DFM (design for manufacture) rules, tricks and tips on how to build a good PCB. And, if you’re trying to create a prototype PCB, then you must use these rules and tips to increase the chances that your prototype will work…
