Electronics Design

Redraw the echo hello-world board, add (at least) a button and LED (with current-limiting resistor), check the design rules, make it (if you have time this week, test it).

optional: simulate its operation. Measure its operation

Learning outcomes:

  • Select and use software for circuit board design

  • Demonstrate workflows used in circuit board design

Have you:

  • Shown your process using words/images/screenshots

  • Explained problems and how you fixed them, including how you worked with design rules for milling (DRC in EagleCad and KiCad)

  • Included original design files (Eagle, KiCad, Inkscape, .cad - whatever)

NB. Also, if you make a board and it doesn't work; franken-hack that board (with jumper wires etc) until it does work, then make a new one with the knowledge you have gained.


Can I modify an existing design board?

Answer: 1. Yes as long as you acknowledge the original design and explain your contribution to the board.

Do I need to create a schematic file?

Answer: 1. If your software does not generate it no, otherwise yes. You can draw or use kokopelli which does not create schematic files.
