When the PCB arrived from our great sponsor PCBWAY, the next step was to order all the components and solder them in the board to check if everything works as intended. Today we are gonna see all the processes from the PCB board to the final product.

When the PCB arrived from the manufacturer, the next step is to assemble all the components and test it out to check if everything works as intended. Today we are gonna see all the processes involved in this task.

Once we have an idea of the schematic and the circuit itself, it's time to test the simulations in real life: Depending on the project, we can test all the circuits or just the specifics parts that are in doubt. For this task, It is highly recommended to use tools such as breadboards, stripboards, some wires and a huge amount of patience.

Icon0 inverter

To properly control an inverter, a modulation technique is needed. Many different approaches could be done to control it. Nevertheless, some parameters such as DC-link voltage utilization, produced harmonics and the final implementation with a DSP (Digital Signal Processor), should be considered before choosing which one is the most suitable for any project.

Depending on your project, you may be interested in having a simulation environment where you can test your solution. In other cases, that's the only option you have since you need to wait for the supplies or works in different groups. Concerning that, simulations can provide an excellent testing bench where you can try the best and worst scenario for your solution, saving you time and money.

icon0 Specifications

On this first chapter of Pic Bytes Micro, we will write down some specs and requirements to have an idea of how the final system will look like. This will also help us to select the components and divide the whole project into small tasks.
