The Design Process (with Altium Designer)

We are very thankful to our major sponsor Altium for providing us with Altium Designer software for designing Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs). Once our team designed the board, we had the board printed by the manufacturer based on the layout in the video. Once received, we assembled the board by applying solder paste, and heated it in a reflow oven.

This board in particular, designed by CDH team members Akiv and John, will be used in our HASP 2018 mission as the flight computer that handles data and monitors power in other systems. It was our first revision and many modifications were made from the errors discovered in the process.
