    Help with Auto routing DO file

    I have never had much luck with the autorouters, most of my PCBs are to compact to get a high % with the autorouters. I am trying to use the autorouters more, but am unable to write a very efficient DO file. I cuurently am using a diptrace autoraouter and an electra autorouter. Does...

    SMT pattern advice needed

    Thank you for you input, I greatly appreciate it. I was looking at the Yageo 1206 resistor patterns. They had recommended a wave soldering pattern and reflow pattern for surface mount PCBs. Since my only knowledge was in through hole PCBs I needed wisdom from other designers on the world of...
