Silkscreen in PCB



  • Hey guys, up with a new query. Can anyone please tell me briefly how I can add silkscreens on my PCB board? By the way I'm using Eagle software. Thanks in advance.



  • Hi kowshik,

    The layer 21 & 22 (tplace & bplace) are the silkscreen layer. These two layers contain both the top and bottom silkscreen on your PCB and also component outlines to show the positioning of components. You need to be careful when using this layer not to place silkscreen on any soldered areas.

    As an alternative to these layers, consider placing additional silkscreen on Layer 51: tDocu for your own personal reference like comments in programming. This layer won’t be included in your manufacturing data or printed on your PCB so that you can include a lot more details. However, if you want to add any kind of additional artwork outside of regular silkscreen, like text or logos, then use Layer 21-22 as I mentioned earlier.
    Let me know anything more you need to know!



  • @Suhailjr Thank you Soo much for the answer.

    I haven't found a good sensor module for this at al

    One of my friend used TP223 Touch button module from Ali express, and it's worked fine also @Akhil also used on of module.

    another option is that you can build capacitive sensor your own with resistors.

    @salmanfaris best if you could point me to an example that works as described: getting different values depending on hoe close the finger is without really touching. nothing i tried did work yet

    @salmanfaris I haven't found a good sensor module for this at all. I used a thing which was calles touch sensor and it returns only 1/0. Tried to use touchRead() but it is not sensitive apparently, only 40 and 1 more or less.

    #define touch_pin_numer 33

    const int VALUE_THRESHOLD = 30;
    int TOUCH_SENSOR_VALUE;
    void setup()
    {
    Serial.begin(115200);
    delay(1000);

    }
    void loop(){
    TOUCH_SENSOR_VALUE = touchRead(touch_pin_numer);
    Serial.println(TOUCH_SENSOR_VALUE);
    if(TOUCH_SENSOR_VALUE < VALUE_THRESHOLD)
    {
    Serial.println ("Touch ON");
    }
    else{
    Serial.println ("Touch OFF");
    }
    }

    should show something between 40 (current max) and 1 (current min) the closer the finger gets but it shows 40/41/39 and 1 - nothing inbetween. got this code from the web
