WHAT: PCB Design with EAGLE Class at NYC Resistor
WHERE: NYC Resistor, 87 3rd ave, 4th Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11217
WHEN: Saturday, January 31, 2015 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EST)
ABOUT: $85, 2-3 hours
Have you ever envied those beautiful green PCBs that all modern electronics have? Do you want to kick up the professionalism in your projects with a real PCB? Would you like to simply learn how to better document your circuits with a nicely done schematic?
Come take the PCB design class and we’ll teach you how to use the awesome, free EAGLE PCB design program. You’ll learn how to draw schematics, find the right footprint, lay out a circuit board, route the circuit board, and finally prepare the board for production. We’ll even show you where you can go to have your boards made for fairly cheap.
Make sure you bring a laptop if you’d like to follow along with the class and create your own circuit. It would be helpful if you downloaded and installed the EAGLE software from http://www.cadsoftusa.com prior to the class.
Instructor: Max Henstell
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
