Introduction: Simple Home Made PCB Layout Using 'eagle Software'
(UPDATED ON : 09/07/2015) Surprise for viewers I have earned pro membership for that i got promo codes & offers from these websites (adafruit, lion brand yarns, lumi, pijuice, pisupply, brainybits).Anybody who want buy anything from those sites Click Here there i have posted all the promo code which i earned. And please vote me.
Hai guys Designing your PCB’s at home is been a hobby for many of us.
Today aim going to show how to design the PCB layout for your electronics project. I used eagle 7.3 software to develop layouts.
Step 1: Materiral Needed
List of material:
°•copper coated single layer PCB
°•photo glossy sheet
°• A computer installed with eagle software
•°soft nylon brush
Step 2: Using Eagle Software
The first thing before you getting start your schematic and layout for your project the software you need is EAGLE.
Downloadit via google So, first of all you’ll need a circuit diagram, decide what you want to make and create a circuit design on a hard paper and note down all the components that are required to create it.Once done with this, open your eagle application or any other circuit designer application which you are familiar.
I designed the circuit to convert 230 AC Volt to 5 volt DC.
Step 3: Routing
Now its time for routing the connection lines.
In EAGLE application goto File
->Switch to board view.And place your components on the board. Now click the auto-route function which is in bottom left corner. The application itself route the schematic connections
Step 4: Printed Layouts
photo glossy sheet is used for printing the designed layout in PCB.
Now place the copper side of the PCB to the printed side of photo glossy sheet.
Step 5: Ready to Print
After placing the PCB fold the photo glossy sheet tightly as shown above.
Step 6: Printed Layout on Pcb
After placing and folding the PCB in the correct position. Take the iron box and set it to max.Now with slight pressure iron them for 8-10 minutes.
After completing the ironing process wait for few minutes then slowly open the sheet you will get the layout in the PCB.
Step 7: Eathicng Process
This is the final process.
Now dissolve the ferric chloride in the water.And soak the printed PCB in the solution then shake the PCB for few minutes until copper in the board is dissolve in the solution.
Step 8: Double Layer Board
This board is printed in both the side with the same process.
