This course will take you through the process of designing a printed circuit board (PCB) in Eagle. We will start with finding schematics for a circuit, then learn how to draw the circuit into Eagle, how to design a circuit board and how to get your design manufactured on the cheap.
The course is based around video tutorials with screenshots of the whole process.
You should take this course to overcome the seemingly big hurdle of creating circuit boards so that you can finally start creating all those cool circuit ideas you have been thinking about for so long.
I was born in Lillehammer, Norway in 1984, and I am currently living in Oslo, Norway.
My interest in electronic circuits started when I was around 14 years old. One day I started thinking about how you could make a light blink. The curiosity started to grow in me and I just had to figure it out. In such a situation it was good to have a father with electronics experience.
And that’s how my journey in electronics began. Throughout my teens I kept trying to build stuff. I remember going to the library on Saturdays and just read lots of books on electronics.
It wasn’t long before I discovered that I could find schematics online. That was just amazing! Suddenly it was possible to build all kinds of cool stuff.
I went on to study electronics and computer science at the University of Oslo from 2004. I learned lots of theory, but there was almost no practical work. It wasn’t until my third year that I actually got to build a real circuit without using a breadboard!
After I finished my Master’s degree in Microelectronics I started an electronics company where I served as the CEO for three years before I decided that it was not what I wanted to do.
During that time I learned a lot about how to solder, how to debug a circuit, how to get circuit boards made and lots of other hands-on experience of building electronic circuits on a budget.
Now I am dedicated to teach the world how to build electronic circuits. My aim is to teach practical skills in the simplest possible way.
