If you are studying to become an electrical designer, but you are offered a job building computer mother boards, could you take the job? Actually, yes, you could. Electrical design studies and degrees can be applied to computers and technology. Here is how you can apply your knowledge, and eventually your degree, to constructing mother boards.
Mother Boards Are Electrical
Computer mother boards are made to direct all electrical and digital signals to and from different parts of computers. In your position, with your knowledge and skills, you can actually design the boards and then build them! In this way, you can enjoy the best of both worlds that interest you the most; electrical design and computer technology.
The first step you would do is to sit at your own work computer and design a mother board. Many of its different electrical circuits and connections are minute. However, on your design software, you can blow up the images of circuits so that you can see exactly where you are placing them and how they connect to other circuits. You may also be hired to resolve circuit placement issues in order to create some very specific electrical connections and applications for a mother board.
As you continue to design the boards and work out the kinks, you are drawing closer to the product expectations of the client. Then you have to build prototypes to make sure they work. This happens in the construction lab.
Building Prototypes and Copies
Your employer will then ask you to build a prototype or reproduce the boards you designed. These are made in the electrical construction lab. Everything is programmed to very carefully build a board to your design specifications. Some aspects are automated to avoid flaws. The rest you can do on your own.
Testing Your Designs
No product is finished until it does exactly what you designed it to do. When you design and construct a computer mother board, you have to test it inside a computer. If it works without glitches or complications, and there are no visible flaws, then you are successful at your task. If not, it is literally back to the (computerized) drawing board to redesign the electrical components of the board until it works. The process may be repeated several times, or just once or twice. That is the place for electrical design in a computer mother board-building world.
