Sjaak shared a tip for panelizing PCB boards in Eagle: Panelizing is done by machining a slot between two or more boards, but keep them attached by a small amount of PCB material (mousebites). I used to do it by hand: generated all the schematics into multiple sheets and then...

What happens when a V-groove hits your copper pour

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Panelizing multiple PCBs onto a single panel is a cost effective way of prototyping. V-groves are usually used to separate the different PCBs, making it easy to snap them off. The picture above depicts what happens when the V-grove hits a copper pour such as a ground plane. Anyway, back...
