Eagle Video Tutorials

Like most DIY electronics beginners there was a point where I needed to create my first custom PCB, and like most I was directed to Cadsoft Eagle as my schematic and board layout editing tool. After downloading Eagle and running it for the first time I was a bit overwhelmed and quickly realized that I was in over my head. I then turned to Google and began searching for tutorials. I found a few here and there but they were lacking the basics and often times confusing. I eventually got the hang of eagle and now have a few friends who also use it, so I have a support base to turn to. I came across a channel on youtube last night that would have made my early days with eagle much easier.... read on after the break.

Jason from RPC electronics has created a complete tutorial series on using Eagle. He covers everything from setting up your project folder all the way to generating the Gerber Files needed to create your first PCB. I am going to post the first few tutorials here and you can continue to follow along through the whole 12 part tutorial series on his Youtube channel. If you are new to DIY Electronics and want to check out Eagle, you can download a free version here. The free version only limits the following features. 

  • The useable board area is limited to 100 x 80 mm (4 x 3.2 inches).
  • Only two signal layers can be used (Top and Bottom).
  • The schematic editor can only create one sheet.
