Tutorial 1 for CadSoft Eagle: Schematic Design


This tutorial was featured on the CadSoft website on 06/19/2012

In the course of making my Arduino Tutorial Series (don’t worry, I have more of those in the works), I got a ton of requests for a tutorial series on how to design circuit boards. Now, I’m answering those requests with my Eagle Tutorial Series! Supported by element14 & cadsoft, this series will take you through the process of designing a complete PCB using the very popular Eagle CAD software. In this first tutorial on CadSoft Eagle, I’ll show you how to get the program up and running, how to navigate the interface, how to design your first schematic, and how to use DesignConnect to build a Bill-of-Materials.

This tutorial has been made possible with support from CadSoft and element14. Learn more about Cadsoft Eagle here:

  1. Which timer ic is use for this tutorial??

  2. I find this to be a great tutorial but I still find datasheets to be a bit daunting or possibly lacking in information although that could be from my lack of knowledge. I am really interested in what steps I need to take to be better at data sheets. Any way you could make a tutorial just on that? Thanks!

  3. Hi, Jeremy Blum.

    I use a program EAGLE-7.2.0
    I did not find the file in the folder.(renumber-sch.ulp)
    where you can download the file.
