I am very new to microcontrollers. I have designed the frimware part of my project via Launchpad. Now I have to have a PCB design. As for GPIO, I am using two pins for UART, one pin for ADC and one pin for digital input. For this basic setup, what should I know? What are the basic design requirements, how to do coupling, etc. and where? What are the other questions I should have asked? If there is any material I can find answers for my questions, it is well appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Hi everyone, I am in the process of evaluating which tool might be more suitable for the design of relatively simple boards. From the alternatives that I found, diptrace and eagle seem to be the top contenders. These are clearly tools not intended for complex jobs, although they can get the thing done for a fraction of the cost of more capable tools. I think eagle has a cumbersome way of defining the coverage of vias with soldermask. The management of component libraries would be better if eagle had an automated way of updating a landpattern accross all libraries that make use of it.
