Description

This course is designed to teach you how to use Eagle cadsoft,One of the best PCB design software,even if you don't have any background in PCB design. 


This course works with older eagle version 7.5V and newer Eagle 8.x V and all files to install the eagle available in the course.

This course I will start with you step by step teaching you how to use Eagle software and organized to let you understand how to deal with Schematic and PCB board editor tools.

in this course I will show you how to

  • analyze your project , select the components you need , find a reference schematics and PCB board 
  •  create your schematic design , place a components , connect them and check your design from any electrical error
  • Transfer your schematic to PCB board, arrange the components on the board,route ,add polygon , generate gerber files and many more.
  • Learn useful tool and skills to improve you project,like using BUS line , Label, differential pairs,meander,3D View , PCB heatsink and thermal via.

After this course you will be able to transfer your project from idea to a real PCB, you will be able to create your custom PCB board with practical 3 circuit project in this course.

Who is the target audience?
  • anyone interested to learn designing PCB

Getting started with Eagle Cadsoft
4 Lectures 13:05

Hello Everyone thanks for joining design PCB board using Eagle course.

in this video we will take a look at this course, for how is this course designed to? what we will learn ?

in this course we will not just learn how to design pcb using eagle,but we will also see how to transfer any idea or any schematic you have to PCB and how we can choose components and find schematics and design reference for our design

so we will looking for:

- How to use eagle cad soft,and draw schematics and layout boards.
- analyze any project and find reference design and components for that.
- understand how to use schematic and layout editor tools.
- design custom part and library on eagle.
- design practical circuits in this course.
- understand how to generate gerber file, bill of material,3D view for pcb.

this course is your best choice to learn designing PCB and become familiar with Eagle cad soft,and hope after this course you will be able to design your own pcb.
