What does an Electronic Drafter do?

Draw wiring diagrams, circuit board assembly diagrams, schematics, and layout drawings used for manufacture, installation, and repair of electronic equipment.

Jobs Roles

  • Draft detail and assembly drawings of design components, circuitry and printed circuit boards, using computer-assisted equipment or standard drafting techniques and devices.
  • Consult with engineers to discuss and interpret design concepts, and determine requirements of detailed working drawings.
  • Locate files relating to specified design project in database library, load program into computer, and record completed job data.
  • Examine electronic schematics and supporting documents to develop, compute, and verify specifications for drafting data, such as configuration of parts, dimensions, and tolerances.
  • Supervise and coordinate work activities of workers engaged in drafting, designing layouts, assembling, and testing printed circuit boards.
  • Compare logic element configuration on display screen with engineering schematics and calculate figures to convert, redesign, and modify element.
  • Review work orders and procedural manuals and confer with vendors and design staff to resolve problems and modify design.
  • Review blueprints to determine customer requirements and consult with assembler regarding schematics, wiring procedures, and conductor paths.
  • Train students to use drafting machines and to prepare schematic diagrams, block diagrams, control drawings, logic diagrams, integrated circuit drawings, and interconnection diagrams.
  • Generate computer tapes of final layout design to produce layered photo masks and photo plotting design onto film.
  • Select drill size to drill test head, according to test design and specifications, and submit guide layout to designated department.
  • Key and program specified commands and engineering specifications into computer system to change functions and test final layout.
  • Copy drawings of printed circuit board fabrication using print machine or blueprinting procedure.
  • Plot electrical test points on layout sheets and draw schematics for wiring test fixture heads to frames.
