Using EAGLE: Board Layout
Resources and Going Further
If you'd like to check out the reference design we did in this tutorial, you can download them here. That also includes the gerber files, and all EAGLE scripts used in this tutorial.
You've taken your first step towards being a PCB designer, but there's still plenty to learn. If you need a break from reading, check out this According to Pete video, where the Dokter goes over some of the more general concepts of PCB layout:
If you'd like to take the PCB layout thing up a notch, give these tutorials a try:
- How to Create SMD Footprints -- If you want to create unique parts in a library, check out this tutorial.
- How to Create SMD PCBs -- This is a more advanced and fast-paced EAGLE tutorial. In this one, we focus on laying out a more complex, surface-mount (SMD) design.
- Making Custom Footprints in EAGLE -- Another footprint-making tutorial. This one details a unique process for making a custom 1:1 footprint.
