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: http://www.element14.com/cadsoft

  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.

  5. Hey Jeremy, thanks for the tutorial! I learned a lot about Eagle much faster than I expected to.. Just one question, I built the device but it’s not working.. Both lights stay on all the time xD I can’t find your design anywhere else online so I thought I’d ask.. Thank you!

  6. I actually figured out the problem but not the solution. In the schematic you made for the YouTube tutorial, the two LEDs and two 100R resistors actually short with the battery to form a closed loop. I don’t know how to fix it, but I figured I’d share

  7. Well, nevermind on that…… I was just using the wrong type of capacitor. In the video I heard you say “normal capacitor” but the schematic showed a polarized one. I guess it won’t work with ceramic disk capacitors! it only works with a polarized one. Finally got it to work though :D
