Electronics and electrical design checklist

pcbchecklist.com

A checklist/trigger list for common issues, best practices and considerations for electronics and electrical design -- from system design all the way to the user manual.

The list is being actively developed (written?) and several reorganizations will undoubtedly occur. My (Henrik's) current focus is mostly on adding explanations to all items.

Future projects

In no particular order.

  • Checkboxes
  • Filtering
  • Keyboard navigation
  • Custom check items
  • Notes
  • State saving and sharing

Contributing

Contributions are more than welcome!

The document is currently plain HTML with embedded JavaScript and CSS -- it keeps things simple.

A few considerations for new items:

  • Does it prevent mistakes or improve quality
  • Place items earlier rather than later
  • Encourage thinking about requirements, rather than prescribing a solution
  • Give reasons and explanations
  • Provide references to app. notes, books, articles etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Isn't there a big difference between analog, digital, RF etc. designs?

True. No list could cover all cases, but there is still a lot which is shared and there are many common pitfalls; all designs need to consider their test procedure; all designs need to consider mechanical integration. Hopefully, a solid checklist can keep track of all this.

If you find something, which is missing from whatever domain you are working, then don't hesitate to add it to your own personal list or even better: contribute it to this list.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
