There is an integrated Design Rule Check (DRC) that will ensure that the board you design is following all rules and has no errors.

Shenzhen, China - January 19, 2021 - PCBONLINE, a custom advanced circuit board manufacturer, has recently published an AutoDesk Eagle tutorial. The step-by-step guide demonstrates how to create a PCB using the software. First, it explains the program control panel, the schematic window, and the board window. Then the tutorial tells how to create a new project, add parts, add connections between parts, name and label the nets, provide parts with value, check the electrical rules, and route the board. If you're new to PCB design or use AutoDesk Eagle, this comprehensive guide should be beneficial. When you're done with PCB creation, you can have circuit boards made by PCBONLINE, which checks your Gerber and BOM carefully and provides free tech support.

PCB Creation with AutoDesk Eagle
   Step-by-Step Tutorial

Question: I'm trying to create a PCB using AutoDesk Eagle but I am new to PCB designing. Is there any free guide to help?

Before we reveal the process of creating a printed circuit board with AutoDesk Eagle we should first see how the software works. Eagle's UI consists of several major interaction points including Library, Board, Schematic, and Control Panel. The library allows you to manage and edit parts, as far as the schematics where you draw the essential connections for a certain PCB. The board is where you lay out all the electronic components that are defined to be physically connected to the board. The control panel we will review separately as it is one of the most important features of the software.

PCBONLINE AutoDesk Layout Tutorial - RF CafeStep 1: AutoDesk Eagle Control Panel The control panel remains the most important aspect of Eagle's UI and it is the main window in the software. Once closed, all related windows that it opened within will close as well. The control panel contains various categories:

Design Rules (.dru) are an inbound feature for checking the rules of a certain PCB design.

Libraries (.lbr) are used for the software to store individual parts that you insert in your project.

User Language Programs (.ulp) are most commonly used for advanced scripting to assist with more complex designs and it is pretty much impossible without it.

CAM Jobs (.cam) is used to export to different formats.

Scripts (.scr) are essential groups of AutoDesk Eagle commands used for the execution of a certain command.

Projects - (.pcb, .sch and etc) is where your printed circuit board schematics or whatever you are doing is stored.

In order to create a new project for a printed circuit board, start off by right-clicking on the "eagle" and select "New Project". Then you will have to download...

Why Should You Choose PCB Assembly from PCBONLINE?

  • We test functionality (FCT) of PCBA to ensure product quality.
  • Our assembly quality is also ensured by first article inspection and 3D-scanning AOI.
  • Our reflow soldering ovens can process both lead-free and lead-containing soldering.
  • We can mount electronic components on a single side and double sides of advanced circuit boards.
  • We check your BOM carefully before assembly and offer free DFM/DFX.
  • We manufacture and assemble PCBs from prototypes to mass production.



PCBONLINE E-ecosystem is an electronic manufacturing online purchase service created by GLOBAL SUCCESS GROUP. We found that the future business trends will focus on customization, and the traditional standardized PCB production line has been unable to meet the R&D of high-end electronic products and "fully meet" customer requirements and lose competitiveness. PCBONLINE provides differentiated services to our customers by means of the parent company's long history in high-end PCB manufacturing and Internet tools. We mainly serve high-end electronics manufacturing (EMS), such as the National Defense Research Institute, aerospace, communications and medical electronics We will continue to grow with the society and our customers so as to adapt to the changing world and value, and always provide the best PCB and EMS services.

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
