Tiny Gadget PCB

CMU16-650, Systems Engineering

November 2020


In this project, my objective was to learn the basics of schematic capture and PCB layout using EAGLE. In addition to that, I got some exposure to creating custom libraries for basic components using EAGLE.


Given the circuit design, my goal was to layout all components on both a through-hole and surface mount PCB board. After creating the schematic, I routed all wires on the board layout and added any necessary text which would need to appear on the actual printed board. I learned about the basics of wire routing, ground planes, vias and good PCB printing practices. 


Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 circumstances, I was unable to actually manufacture these boards. However the manufacturing layouts can be seen here!
