PCB Design with EAGLE
Saturday, May 16, 2009 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
3 hours, $75
Have you ever envied those beautiful green PCBs that all modern electronics have? Do you want to kick up the professionalism in your projects with a real PCB? Would you like to simply learn how to better document your circuits with a nicely done schematic?
Come take the pcb design class which will teach you how to use this awesome, free EAGLE pcb design program. You'll learn how to draw schematics, find the right footprint, lay out a circuit board, route the circuit board, and finally prepare the board for production (including successful testing methods). We'll even show you where you can go to have your boards made for fairly cheap.
Make sure you bring a laptop if you'd like to follow along with the class and create your own circuit. It would be helpful if you downloaded and installed the EAGLE software from http://www.cadsoft.de/ prior to the class.
