How to Draw an Electrical Connection in a PCB Schematic

Now that you know how to add parts into your schematic, you are ready to learn the process of connecting these parts electrically. In Eagle, this is known as nets. Similar to the process in real-life (e.g. breadboard) where you make make electrical connections between parts, Nets allows Eagle to

How to Create a NEW Package in a Library – Eagle PCB

A package is a physical layout of the component, e.g. resistor, you are trying to create. This layout includes the dimensions of the part itself and the dimensions of the copper pads. With this information, a 2-dimensions CAD representation can be created in Eagle software, which will then

How to Create a NEW Symbol in a Library – Eagle PCB

When designing a PCB in Eagle CAD software, the libraries available to you may not have the components you require. In this situation, you will need to create your own library in Eagle with the necessary parts. In this tutorial, I will show you how to create

Eagle PCB Tutorials and Design Exercises

The industry of Computer Aided Design (CAD) includes Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design. Most people that are around technology have most likely seen a PCB. However, they probably were unaware of what it actually was. In simple terms, a PCB is a physical board with electrical components

Definitions and Acronyms Used – PCB Design Tutorial

Designing a PCB with Eagle CAD tool can be a tough task. Not only does it require knowledge of electronics but learning the jargon takes time. In this tutorial, I will layout the various terminology you should know when trying to make a PCB. Achieving an understanding of such

Schematic Options and Menus in Eagle PCB – Tutorial

In order to send a PCB for fabrication, the first step is to create a schematic. A schematic is visual representation of the electrical connections. In the previous tutorial, I explained how to create a new project and schematic file so check that out before continuing here.

How to Add a Part in a Schematic – Eagle CAD Tutorial

After you are successful in creating a schematic file in Eagle CAD, it is time to learn how to add a part. A part refers to components such as resistors, capacitors, or even ICs such as microcontrolers. Even GND (ground) and VCC (voltage input) are technically parts when

Creating Projects, Library, and Schematics – PCB Tutorial

This is the first tutorial in the complete PCB design tutorial set. I will cover three basic aspects of Eagle PCB. They include creating a project, adding a library, and lastly, creating a schematic. After following these steps, you will know how to start off a new
