MAKE YOUR OWN D*MN BOARD
Use EAGLE to design a bare bones Arduino board.
By Shawn Wallace
THE REALLY BARE BONES BOARD (RBBB) and its schematic were originally designed by Paul Badger of Modern Device. It’s pretty much the bare minimum needed for a useful Arduino-type development board. And once you build the schematic in EAGLE, it’s easy to incorporate in other designs.
EAGLE is a collection of programs, each serving one part of the design process. We’ll focus on Schematic Editor and Board Editor; other modules include Autorouter (trace layout AI), Parts Editor, CAM Processor (for creating machining-ready ...
