Why PCB Designing?

We often come across two scenarios where we need PCB designing. Sometimes we need to fix a medium/large sized circuit with various components into a smaller and more compact form. And sometimes we need to use a specific circuit more number of times. In such cases, making a Printed Circuit Board of the required circuit is very useful.

Have a look:


What is Eagle?

Eagle is a PCB Designing Software where you can use custom libraries for using a variety of elements, from common Resistors, Capacitors etc to specific ICs, Microcontrollers. It lets you add the elements you want, design the circuit and the choose the physical connections the way you want on your PCB.

Details Of Commands and usages in making the SCHEMATIC

There are basically two parts of our development in Eagle. First, the Schematic, that shows all the connections(but not the way you physically want on the PCB). Secondly, forming final connections and arranging them in the final physical way we want.

So, in the session, we decided to make a IC 555 circuit.


We will go through the following procedure:

  1. Making the Schematic

  2. Designing the physical connections

Let us move on to using the software and its commands.

1. Making the Schematic

You are expected to be done with the schematic using these commands.

Now Type Board command and click Yes option to go to the next part.

2. Making the Physical Connections
