Resources for every step of EAGLE PCB Design from breadboarding to finished project.

1. How to prototype using a breadboard

A breadboard is a solderless electronic circuit builder - perfect for proving your concept.

Guide to Breadboarding

2. How to Install and Setup EAGLE

Everything you need to know to get started using EAGLE.

Guide to installing EAGLE

3. How to streamline your EAGLE configuration

EAGLE's thousands of library files can be overwhelming. We have more than 500 curated, proven design files for your use. 1) Grab them in GitHub, 2) drag-and-drop a ULP file into an open EAGLE schematic, or 3) find single product design files on product pages or in GitHub (note for product files: individual board files are in "Hardware" directory and EAGLE panels are in the "Production" directory).

4. How to use the EAGLE schematic editor

Designing a schematic is the first step in PCB design. A well-designed schematic is critical to the whole process.

Guide to Schematics

5. How to use EAGLE's Board Designer

Laying out a board is the second step in PCB design. Within EAGLE's board layout tool you create a finished PCB design.

6. How to check your design for errors

This step insures that a manufacturer can successfully fabriate your PCB. With SparkFun's design rules files, you can check your design for errors.

Guide to Design Rule Check

7. How to create Gerbers

Use SparkFun's CAM files, to create Gerber files that are accepted by most fab houses.
