•Introduction, prestart definitions.
•Installing the required Software (Proteus) .
•Basic introduction to Proteus interface and tools.
•Design, Draw and test your first simple circuit using ISIS.
•Introduction to some techniques needed to master ISIS.
•Create your own electric element and add it to ISIS library.
•Design, Draw and test a more advance circuit.
•Basic introduction to ARES interface and tools.
•Preparing ISIS circuit design to be moved to ARES.
•Move your design from ISIS to ARES for creating your first PCB.
•Placing elements the right way.
•Start Routing in different ways.
•Finalize your circuit for mass production.
Proteus PCB design combines the ISIS schematic capture and ARES PCB layout
programs to provide a powerful, integrated and easy to use suite of tools
for professional PCB Design.
It has two main software that we will be using in this course:
•1- ISIS which is used t design and simulate circuits.
•2- ARES used to create the Printed Circuit Board (PCB).
So ISIS for design and ARES for making PCB to manufacture.
Before Installing the Required Software.
Before Starting you must know that this software can be found in the Labcenter Electronics Official Website which you can go to from here
You can download a demonstration version from the link which comes from Labcenter electronics official website.
Do know that if you want to use it for commercial use of industrial use you must purchase the full version from Labcenter website.
•So now we will do a brief introduction for ISIS interface and Tools including:
•3- Work Area
•We will design, draw and simulate the following simple design in proteus:
•1- Adding elements
•2- Placing elements
•3- Routing/connecting elements together
•4- Testing/Simulating our circuit to make sure that it works fine.
•Few techniques needed:
•1- Copying elements and blocks.
•2- Changing Items properties
•3- Making a list of all elements in our circuit.
•4- Other techniques.
•Now what if a circuit element doesn't exist in the library ?!
•You will make it yourself by following these steps:
•1- Draw your element.
•2- Name it and add to library
•3- Use it.
•Note: Making the elements yourself doesn't mean that you can
use it in testing or simulation, it's just a block to be used for final
•Now let's do a more complex Circuit with an element that doesn't exits in the library:
•Now moving to the next section, Introducing ARES for PCB making:
•3- Work Area
•Back to ISIS to prepare our design for making PCB using ARES:
•1- Review elements names.
•2- Make sure every element has it's right PCB package
•3- Click ARES icon.
•In order to make everything easier you must place all elements exactly as in the real life circuit or design, which means:
•1- Elements must be as close as possible to each other.
•2- Elements padding must be changed according to your Drill head properties.
•Before start routing there is two ways to route your elements:
•1- Manual Routing
•2- Automatic Routing
•Finalizing your PCB design:
•1- Add borders to the right layer.
•2- clear any errors or warnings.
•3- Review elements pad size.
•4- Get the 3D view of your board.
