PCB Design and Fabrication for NEMS Applications
In this project, a resonator was theoretically defined and modelled in an effort to choose appropriate impedance matching between the resonator and outside electronics. Quite Universal Circuit Simulation (QUCS) was used to model the S-parameter of potential electronic circuits. Two types of impedance were tested: LC and transformer. Based on the commercial availability of the components and the S-parameter results, a 3 transformer matching design was chosen. The schematic library and the PCB library of all the components were made on Altium and a first design of the PCB is presented.
