Slides from my presentation on gEDA

Last year I did a presentation on getting started with gEDA at the 2010 Open Source Bridge conference. I just received an email from someone asking for the slides from that presentation. I thought why not post them for everyone.

I don’t have complete presentation notes but you can view the speaker notes I did make from the action menu at the bottom of the full screen presentation.

Join me tonight at the March PLUG Advanced Topics meeting

I’ll be speaking tonight at the Portland Linux/Unix Group advanced topics meeting. The topic is going to be creating a printed circuit board using the gEDA suite of electronic design automation tools.

Here is the announcement from the PLUG mailing list:
http://lists.pdxlinux.org/pipermail/plug-announce/2011q1/000656.html

The meeting is at 7PM tonight (Tuesday), March 15th at Free Geek: 1731 SE 10TH AVE, Portland, OR.

Hope to see you there.

Arduino shield board outline in gEDA format

I have been working on a few different shield boards for the Arduino platform. In an attempt to make life easier for myself I created a couple starter files for my future projects. The zip file below includes a schematic and PCB file in gEDA format. The board has the four headers and mounting holes for an Arduino shield board. I’ve decided to release the files into the wild for anyone to use.

Low Voltage Labs now has a wiki

Low Voltage Labs now has a wiki at http://wiki.lowvoltagelabs.com/

I plan to use the wiki for product documentation, future product ideas, and listing resources related to electronics. Let me know what you think.

Join me at the 2010 Open Source Bridge conference

I’m speaking at Open Source Bridge – June 1–4, 2010 – Portland, ORI’ve been chosen as a speaker for the 2010 Open Source Bridge conference. Stop by and learn how to create printed circuit boards using the gEDA suite of electronic design automation tools.

Release your hardware hacker potential with gEDA

This session will take you step-by-step through the process of creating an actual printed circuit board using the gEDA suite of electronic design automation tools. From schematic to gerber files, you can do all with the open source tools in gEDA.

The gEDA project is a full GPL’d suite of electronic design automation tools. The suite includes tools for schematic capture, attribute management, bill of materials (BOM) generation, netlist creation, analog and digital simulation, and printed circuit board (PCB) layout.

This session will cover:
– Drawing a block diagram
– Creating parts and drawing a schematic
– Netlist creation and import into the printed circuit board tool
– Layout of the printed circuit board
– Outputting gerber files
– Design verification
– How to have your printed circuit board built

This session will be presented for the beginner and will assume no previous hardware experience.
