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
