Eagle PCB Design Tutorial

Date: 27 May 2022

Location: CEI building

The tutorial session was intended to walk students through the PCB design process using the Autodesk Suite (Eagle and Fusion 360). The lecture was broken up into 3 sections in order to achieve the following learning outcomes:

1. Advantages and disadvantages of PCB design vs. conventional circuit prototyping methods.

2. The PCB fabrication process.

3. Develop a library of parts including the schematic symbol, 2D PCB footprint, and 3D package design.

4. Convert a circuit schematic into a PCB design to be sent to the manufacturer for fabrication.

5. 3D render PCB Design.
