Eagle CAD Tip: Use the Meander Tool to Make Differential Pair Routes
Yahya Tawil has a quick tip for creating differential pair routes for PCB design using Eagle CAD’s meander tool. The animated GIF below more-or-less demonstrates it and this blog post explains it step by step.
When you see some board designs, especially ones with high speed signals or differential pair signals, then you will notice a lot of zigzag/meander lines on PCB.
If you’re wondering whether you can do differential pair routing, then the answer is simply yes by using Meander tool.
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.
