Eagle PCB CAD Crash Course
Wednesday, October 12, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
If you've wanted to make your own circuit boards and turning the
schematic you have on paper or in your head into a finished board is
the stumbling block, this course is for you. This Eagle PCB CAD Crash
course is intended for those who already know what an electrical
schematic is and vaguely how to construct one - the focus will be
exclusively on Eagle software NOT general electronics knowledge. The
course will be an introduction to the Eagle software available from
http://www.cadsoftusa.com You should have Eagle installed on a laptop
prior to coming to class - both the Linux and Windows versions are
fine. Creating schematics, creating boards from schematics, basic
manual layout chores, the relationship between schematic and board,
making gerber files for board houses, finding libraries, making custom
parts will be covered. If you have a schematic that you would like
made into a PCB, please bring it with you as a "real" example will be
much more useful than a contrived one. If there is time, creation of
solderpaste masks using the laser cutter will be covered. I'm going
to try to leave around a third of the class time for questions and
