Layer by Layer – Cherry MX Gamepad in Eagle CAD

In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to lay out components in Eagle CAD to make a custom PCB. This project will be a gamepad with Cherry MX switches and an Adafruit Feather 32u4 Bluefruit LE. It’s a very basic design that hopefully provides a good introduction to eagle. We’ll quickly learn how to navigate through the interface and use basic tools like add, move, route and wire. \

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.
