7. Electronics design


individual project:
redraw the echo hello-world board,
add (at least) a button and LED (with current-limiting resistor)
check the design rules, make it, and test it
extra credit: simulate its operation

Learning outcomes

Select and use software for circuit board design

What I have done

This week I used Eagle to design my circuit board, milled with MDX-15 and FabModule.

First, I design a board on Eagle.

  • Created new board.

  • Added parts from library.

  • Connected parts by using “name” command

  • Setting the board configulation

    • Placed parts

    • Setting Grid

    • Setting line width

    • connected all compornents

  • Drew lines and checked design with hitting “drc” command

  • There was clealance error. So I widen the margin between lines.

  • cleared all error

  • export circuit as .png image

  • filtered only Top

  • export

  • also exported outline

  • filterd only document

  • Made a file for mill by using FabModules

  • Milled with MDX-15

  • Parts and milled board

  • Solderd parts

  • Making connector cable

  • conneceted and write through FabISP

  • is working!
