    Does anybody have a few PCB designs that they are willing to post.
    I am try my first attempt at making my own PCB board. I have a laser printer but I need some designs to print of.

    Later I will learn the software and how to create my own designs.

    Thanks for any designs.

    There are a lot of projects on http://www.ladyada.net that include pcb files in Eagle format. Eagle is schematic and PCB software that is free for small projects.

    PCB design is a bit of a black art.
    I learned from experience. I bought EasyPC and just got stuck in.
    Ending up with designs with short tracks and a minimum of vias is a good game !

    I have been caught out by PCB CAD software when the ysometimes do something unexpected ! Thats why in the end I wrote my own.

    A bit off topic, but I have been getting familiar with Eagle Soft. Is there any I can test my circuits in eagle soft?

    Any other software I can use to import my circuits from Eagle and test them?

    Thanks.

    I really would like to know if there is such a thing out there.

    Would I have to learn how to use LT Spice to simulate my circuits?

    I'd appreciate any help I can get.

    Anybody?

    This would be extremely helpful for me as I would save money I don't have.

    Thanks.

    If you are asking whether there is a simulator that will run directly from an Eagle schematic, I don't think so. The parts used in the schematic are simply designs and do not have any functional properties associated with them, except maybe the pins.

    I understand that. But I was hoping there was a program I could use to load up my eagle schematics...

    Oh well...

    BeigeBag software has a PSpice package that adds the capability to import/export Cadsoft Eagle schematics to PSpice.
    http://www.beigebag.com/

    They have a LITE version available for no cost:
    http://www.beigebag.com/adv4_lite.htm
    but it doesn't have the Eagle import/export feature - which is really the only reason you'd want this program anyway. :rolleyes:

    You can download a 45-day trial version: http://www.beigebag.com/demos.htm
    but unless you're willing to plunk down $250 after the trial period ends, better not even bother with it.

    Hi Cant offer you much advice as I myself am just in the throws of trying to find a suitable pcb design software to learn on and it's a bit of a jungle out there, but I can say that all the forums and other places I've visited rave about LT Spice as a simulator, so you may need to bite the bullet an learn it.

    If any one can recommend a worthwhile program for a newbie I'd appreciate it.

    regards to all

    Wal

    You could show us the schematic. Then we could see if your design might work.
