If you're using a PWB layout editor, you might want to look at these items: "Design for Manufacturing"
[Any other must-have, highly recommended books ?]
[FIXME: point to other mailing list and Usenet newsgroups: ... PIClist with the [EE] topic, comp.arch.embedded, ... ]
[FIXME: merge with bibliography ?] [FIXME: split into seperate CAD-independent FAQ ?]

Andy... I am trying to put together a website to address this very issue... It's still under construction but you may find some of what you are looking for under 'education' in the Navigation menu on the left side of the page. Here's the link - http://home.fda.net/bbrooks/pca/pca.htm
I will be adding more to it as time goes on... make sure to check back often.Bill Brooks Senior PCB Designer Zoneworx, Inc. 40925 County Center Drive, STE 200 Temecula, CA 92591 http://www.zoneworx.com Tel: (909) 296-1226 x 1037 Co-Director / Education Officer / Webmaster for the San Diego Chapter of the IPC Designers Council http://www.ipc.org/SanDiego/

Net Names on all Power Symbols
Use the "little arrow thingy" power object, enter the net name as required, and then place it upside down. Viola! It looks like a little ground symbol with the net name displayed. My printouts are legible and I really like being able to see the assigned net name for the ground. I have since given up on using all those other cute symbols (ie. the ones that don't display the net name) mostly because they can be assigned to ANY net so you really don't know for sure at a glance. For bias nets I like the bar do-dad. - Dave Lewis
