- Schematic Design: First, the engineer will create a schematic diagram that shows the kinds of electronic components and how they connect with each other.
- Layout: In CAD, designers can do the actual layout of the components and consider the route and trace. In this step, we make sure that the function, size, routing, and so on conform to the design rules.
- Gerber files: After confirming the layout, the designers will send gerber files together with text explanations of different layers.
