Module PCB By Types
Module PCB Explanation
Electronics are a lot like building blocks. You can build something complex with little effort, but it takes time and effort to find the right parts. Modular PCB can be less expensive because you’re getting everything you need in one place.
The advantages of modular PCB also include ease of repair, upgradability and less waste. The purpose of modular PCB is to make complex circuits easier to build and assemble.
Modular PCBs are a key concept in the electronics design industry. If you understand how they work and how to use them, you can simplify your design process significantly.
Why Do You Need Module PCB?
The advantages of module PCB are ability to be flexible, cost efficient and easy to use. Module PCB provides a powerful and simple way for manufacturing small quantities or large quantities of electrical products.
Module PCB are a small and compact solution for your product. Modules can be used in various applications, including mobile phones, handheld communicators, computer/audio/video systems, and military applications.
How to Use a Module PCB?
When you’re first starting out with electronics, it can be confusing to know how to get started. Here are some simple tips for using a module PCB.
Draw schematic modules and PCB modules and ensure that their component prefix are one to one, and the footprint is also corresponding.
Open schematic and PCB at a same project. Open Library then select the module. Click the Place button to place the previous saved schematic module and PCB module. It will pop up a window. The letter of schematic module should keep corresponding with PCB modules!

Module PCB Fabrication
There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to designing your module PCB.
First, you need to think about the type of board you want. The size and shape of your board will depend on what kind of components you want to use and how much space they take up. You can also choose between a two or three-layer board, depending on how complicated the design is.
Second, consider how many layers you want. A two-layer board can handle most basic designs, but if you’re using more complex components, then you’ll need to go with a three-layer board. This will allow for better signal flow and less interference from other parts on the board.
Before you mount your module to the PCB, you’ll want to inspect it to ensure its contact surface is clean and there are no lumps or bulges on the baseplate that could damage the base or reduce heat transfer across the surfaces.
Next, if you’re using a press fit method for contacting MTP pins to the PCB, make sure the PCB has appropriate tolerances on its hole diameters. This will ensure that your MTP pins fit snugly into their holes without damaging either part.
Finally, solder your MTP pins onto the PCB! This is a great way to make sure they stay in place while you’re building your circuit.

I have used them for a several projects in the past year and never failed me nor my customers! They are quality people and they have the best customer service I have seen in this industry. I would recommend them to anyone who needs materials fast and of top-notch quality.”Nikolai Dudin, Director of Radio Company Twente, Netherlands
“I’m actually glad that I came across this PCB company on the internet. Everyone else was so pricey that it didn’t make sense to go with them. I love the way that you can use your own designs, but you also have the option of using their existing ones. Overall, I am very happy with my experience, and I know that I will be using PCBTok again in the future.”Yoshio Kodaira, Procurement and Supply Manager from Sendai, Japan
PCB module design is a process that starts with a schematic and ends with a PCB. It is a simple process, but there are several steps involved in getting from one to the other.
To start, you must create a new project in Altium Designer (File > New > Schematic/PCB Module). Once you have created your project, you can save it as a module by going to Library > Schematic/PCB modules > Work Space > My Libraries. Then, you can start designing your PCB module by creating components and placing them on the canvas.
Once you’ve created all of your components and placed them on your canvas, you’re ready to generate placement data for manufacturing. To do this, simply select all of the components in your board and then go to File > Generate Placement Report from Selection. You’ll then be able to generate a report that will help you get started designing your PCB module!
Ever wanted to use a schematic for module PCB? Now you can! There are many ways to do this, but we’re going to focus on saving a module PCB as a schematic.
- First, open the module PCB. Then, click File > Save as Module.
- Save As: Choose saving as Schematic
- Save in Folder: Choose where you want to save your new module file (we recommend creating a folder for all of your modules).
- Rename: Give your new module file a name that will make sense when you use it in another project.
There are a ton of different software packages out there to help you design your own Module PCB. Some of the most popular ones include:
- KiCad, which is free and open source. It’s available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and FreeBSD. It’s great if you’re looking to make something that’s really cheap or really simple.
- Eagle, which is also free and open source. It’s available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and FreeBSD. It’s great if you’re looking for something that has more features than KiCad but isn’t as complicated as other options.
- Altium Designer (formerly known as Protel), which costs about $500 per license per year but has some serious bells and whistles (like 3D rendering). You’ll need a separate version of this software to do your PCB layouts versus doing them in a different module editor—so it can get pricey if you want both versions!
