Addendum: Please don’t watch my videos. After Birdmun’s comment I found Hack-a-Day has created better videos (shakes fist at Hack-a-Day) and I don’t want anyone to waste anyone’s time. Although, mine has a better soundtrack and less mutton-chops :)

Hack-a-Day videos:

  1. Learning Eagle CAD Part 1 – Schematic & Custom Parts
  2. Learning Eagle CAD Part 2 – Schematic & Custom Parts (includes making a part)
  3. Learning Eagle CAD – CAM Processor
  4. Learning Eagle CAD – Layout

Original: I was speaking with TeleFox and Birdmun about finding an optoisolator for use with my Raspberry Pi; I had gotten some samples of these ICs: ADUM1250ARZ. Well, for awhile now I’ve wanted to share my dumb-luck methods for designing a board around a sampled IC.

So here it is, 20mins (sorry).

Hope everyone is well :)

Part 1 – Making the Part

Part 2 – Finishing the Part and Making the Board
