ECE 331 rev: S16 Lab 4 p. 1 Lab 4: Printed Circuit Board Design using EAGLE Summary: Students will learn the basic techniques of schematic and printed circuit board (PCB) design utilizing the EAGLE software. Students will gain experience interpreting technical data sheets for electronic components and designing a practical PCB. Learning Objectives: Learn how to utilize EAGLE software to create printed circuit boards Experience interpreting schematics of a printed circuit board Experience routing PCB traces and debugging design problems Resources and Supplies: EAGLE 7.3 software (available in engineering (DECS) computer labs) *EAGLE_Tutorial *PCB Design Guide Files (or folders) are on the course shared directory: egr\courses\unix\ECE\331\Shared Contents: Pre-lab Assignment: ........................................................................................................................ 1 Background: .................................................................................................................................... 1 Laboratory Assignment: ................................................................................................................... 3 Exercise 1: Creating a new component for the new library (~60 min) ................................................. 3 Exercise 2: PCB design (~60 min) ..................................................................................................... 4 Exercise 3: Utilizing PCB layers (~30 min) ......................................................................................... 4 Finishing Touch ............................................................................................................................... 5 Discussion Points ............................................................................................................................ 5 Pre-Lab CHECK-OFF Sheet: ........................................................................................................... 6 Lab CHECK-OFF Sheet: .................................................................................................................. 7 Pre-lab Assignment: Each student must complete their own pre-lab before coming to the lab. Pre-lab check-off sheets must be turned in to the TA before starting the lab assignment. 1. Read the Background sections of this lab. 2. Print the Pre-lab Check-off Sheet near the end of this document, perform the required tasks. Turn in the completed sheet to the TA at the beginning of your lab. 3. Read through the entire Laboratory Assignment section so you know what to expect in the lab. If you have limited experience CAD software tools, this lab may take some time, so please prepare in advance of your lab section Background: PCB Design Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are the backbone of any production level electronic device in today’s market, and therefore knowledge of PCB layout tools can be a vital skill. PCBs may include analog, digital, and/or passive components depending on the application, and each different component type
