Re: [The-Boston-Arduino-Users-Group] Future topics

Since a circuit layout tutorial would probably take most of the meeting it
may be better if there was a separate meeting for this topic.

I would be happy to discuss circuit board layout in general and I could go
through an example in gEDA (probably the drawdio circuit that is on my
website).

I have not installed the gEDA tools or my parts library on my new laptop
yet and it may be a few weeks before I get around to it. The gEDA tools
run best in Linux and also run in MAC. If you are on windows I would
recommend getting a copy of VMware and running the tools in a virtual
machine. My Vista laptop is setup with VMs for ubuntu and fc10.

Here are some links to gEDA tutorials and information ---
Stuart Brorson gEDA article in Circuit Cellar March 2006

PCB Tutorial? http://www.delorie.com/pcb/docs/gs/

My gEDA information is at
http://www.luciani.org/geda/geda-index.html

An open source remix of the drawdio circuit (including
all EDA files) is at http://wiblocks.luciani.org/remix/index.html

You can't create open hardware with closed EDA tools.
