Since I first started delving into PCB design in early 2012, EAGLE has been my go to tool for schematics and layouts. Despite having a cumbersome library system, it is fairly simple to use and has full design rule checking and the ability to switch from imperial to metric measurements and vice versa. Looking back over my past work has lead me to find one of my very first designs, a model crane control circuit.
Being new to the program, and having little experience in good design practise, the schematic was rather messy. The board layout, however, was quite nice. Sadly, the switch bouncing was such an issue that this prototype never worked, and I am considering redesigning the board for nostalgia sake, and to show what I’ve learned while at University.
