RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

PowerPCB? 1 design in 2 PowerPCB editing ??? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Dear all,

If I had one PCB design and wanted to give two people to edit (one person editing left hand side part, another person editing righ hand side part), after they finished their parts, how could I combine these two edited PCB file into one finially in the PowerPCB? Moreover, what could I set it in the PowerPCB before edition for final combination?

thanks

What I would do before moving to such PCB layout is to make a hierarchical schematics that will detail all the connections between the various blocks and by this minimized the chances for mistakes. In addition both the PCB layouts would have to contain the same number of layers and layer structure and maintain the same guidelines and DRC settings.

One of my recent PCB layout was done by more than 1 person (both on the same board one was doing the digital and the other the RF) if you don't keep these guidelines it can be prone to errors that can result in another spin of PCB layout. I haven't done that on PowerPCB but these guidelines are general and of course can match to any PCB layout tool!

Good luck!
