Happy new year communitySponsored Links
Today i want to explain to you how to use E.A.G.L.E. Eagle is mixed up with german and english language and i got some request's to help them and write a tut, so i'll do so. Let us stop talking arround and just get started:
Click on DATEI/NEU/BOARD to open a new board file.
Click on ANSICHT/RASTER
For ANZEIGE choose EIN and for DARSTELLUNG choose PUNKTE then hit OK
Now we can start to add our components we need. On the left option panel click on Add
Select SMD's, VORSCHAU and BESCHREIBUNG
Now you can start to search for the component you need. On this pic we search for a resistor with the buildart 0603. The numbers indicate the size and form of the component you want to place on your layout.
Do not use the name of the component to search like PIC18F2550. You won't find one. Instead search in the library Modchip and search for buildart. In our case SO28. SO for SOIC which indicates a smd component and 28 for the pinout the chip have. When you place the part you can turn it with a right click on the mouse
After you have placed all components you need you can start to draw the lines or paths. If you need a smaller grid to be able to correct connect the lines just change it to what you need. In this case we use 0,025.
Again on the left option panel choose WIRE and on the top option panel change the wire and here color to top from the drop down menu (this will be important a few steps later). With right click you can jump between the art's of the wire. Just try it out and play around with the wire for better understanding. If you need a smaller/bigger wire you can change it on the top option panel with BREITE and here drop down menu.
Place the courser on the point you want to start in this case a pin of the pic and start to draw with left click on the mouse to the point where it should be and again with left click connect the both with each other. With STOP on the top option panel you can channel this or any other process.
