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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
