This is a series of video tutorials about Cadsoft’s Eagle PCB design software.
In this lesson you will learn the basics about the home window, how to create a new project and open a new schematic.
In this lesson you will learn about some commonly used tools in the schematic editor and how to do some simple manipulation of parts like naming and setting values.
In this lesson you will start a schematic for a real working circuit. In this case, a voltage regulator, filter caps and an LED. We will cover some new tools, point out some quirks of Eagle and pitfalls to avoid.
In this lesson you will finish the basic schematic and make a few housekeeping changes.
In this lesson you will finish the schematic by adding a couple of parts and prepare for starting on the board itself.
In this lesson, you start actually creating a board design with the schematic created in the last several lessons.
In this lesson, you continue on with creating a board design with the schematic we created in the last several lessons. You will cover a couple of new topics like the Show tool and changing grid increments to move parts.
In this lesson, you continue on with creating a board design and start some manual routing. You also learn about the Ratsnest tool for calculating shortest runs.
In this lesson, you continue on with running traces, but this time we use the auto-router to do the rest of the job for us. You will also do a copper pour aka ground-plane and go through the simple settings to make that happen.
In this lesson, you learn about how to make the “disappearing copper pour” come back and learn about running a silkscreen script.
In this lesson, you add on a non-scripted silkscreen text marking and run the Gerber generation script.
In this lesson, you will cover the top six questions that I have been asked either through the comments or private messages.
