Learn how to make double-sided, professional-quality PCBs from the ground up using Eagle – the powerful, flexible design software. In this step-by-step guide, electronics guru Simon Monk leads you through the process of designing a schematic, transforming it into a PCB layout, and submitting standard Gerber files to a manufacturing service to create your finished board. Filled with detailed illustrations, photos and screenshots, "Make Your Own PCBs with Eagle" features downloadable example projects so you can get started right away.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

It would be very difficult to use Eagle well without the guidance in this book. You would spend many hours on your own sorting things out.
