Make Your Own PCBs with EAGLE: From Schematic Designs to Finished Boards

by: Dr. Simon Monk


Abstract: Design custom printed circuit boards with EAGLE. Learn how to make double-sided professional-quality PCBs from the ground up using EAGLE—the powerful, flexible design software. In this step-by-step guide, electronics guru Simon Monk leads you through the process of designing a schematic, transforming it into a PCB layout, and submitting standard Gerber files to a manufacturing service to create your finished board. Filled with detailed illustrations, photos, and screenshots, Make Your Own PCBs with EAGLE™ features downloadable example projects so you can get started right away. • Install EAGLE Light Edition and discover the views and screens that make up an EAGLE project • Create the schematic and board files for a simple LED project • Find the right components and libraries for your projects • Work with the Schematic Editor • Lay out PCBs with through-hole components and with surface mount technology • Build a sound level meter with a small amplifier and ten LEDs • Generate Gerber design files to submit for fabrication • Solder through-hole PCBs and SMD boards • Design a plug-in Arduino shield • Build a Raspberry Pi expansion board • Automate repetitive tasks using scripts and User Language Programs • Create your own libraries and parts and modify existing components
