Recently I started on producing pcbs for SMD parts. Using the software packages Multisim and Ultiboard by National Instruments I learned how to design troughhole and SMD pcbs.

I also practiced on populizing these boards by using a pick-and-place machine. After populating the boards and inspecting them under a microscope I soldered them using a reflow oven. It was a fun experience to learn a new way of making electronics and a great addition to my skills.
