Robotics hardware designing using Eagle Software
This software is Easily Applicable Graphical Layout Editor (EAGLE) used for PCB designing. To design an electronic circuit schematic and layout on Printed Circuit Board (PCB) eagle software is used.
Eagle is a PCB design software package consists of a PCB editor, a schematic editor and an auto router module. This software also provides wide variety of library components, but library editor is also provided for design new parts or modify the existing one.
Why use Eagle:
Eagle is PCB CAD software used for designing hardware of the system. Consider the few reasons why Eagle is preferred over other hardware designing tools:-
Drawing the Schematic:
Using this software we can draw the schematics of Power Supply, an Atmel AtMega16 Microcontroller, LCD, Motor Driver IC (L293D) and remaining I/O- pins connected to headers.
Consider the Eagle Toolbar for editing the schematic of the circuit is,
Using the above tools the desired operation can be performed for drawing schematic structure of the circuit. When adding the components you will notice a small black cross on each device. It is the origin or handle of the device used for manipulate the device with various tools.
