Lots of external Eagle Links ( Eagle is a Schematic and Printed Circuit Design Tool, see: Techniques, Software Design Tools )

Contents

Introduction

Magic key words for searching the links, in the Topic column.

  • Projects: project descriptions, enough to reproduce the project, not just nice pictures
  • EFiles: File(s) in eagle format for the board, schematic, or both.
  • Tutorial: a tutorial or how to
  • Link: a link to more links
  • Parts: Part libary(ies)
  • Info: Useful information that does not rise to a tutorial, misc. tips.


So for example if you are looking for sample Eagle files search on EFiles.

There were several sites where there is quite a bit of information. These include cadsoft.com sparkfun.com. instructables.org

One of the biggest omissions is the cadsoft site itself. Poke around a bit, we will fix this problem with the list sometime in the future.

LED backlight and contrast adjustment are supported by these wirings. The schematics describe the 8bit "winamp" wiring, as supported by LCDproc 0.4.1 and up. More investigation might help.
