Eagle : PCB Design Getting Started

PC By Piyush Charpe     Course level: Beginner


Hardware Design



Training Overview

  • Learn how to design PCB from scratch.

  • Covers the end-to-end hardware development process, with a step by step approach.

  • Uses Eagle software for PCB designing & Arduino IDE for programming the hardware.


This training will arm you with knowledge required to design your own PCBs from scratch. Every single step along the way has been thoroughly covered.

We will be building a custom Arduino UNO board from scratch, which can be programmed using the Arduino IDE. The training also covers some essential circuits (viz RGB LED, switches, preset, motor drivers, seven segment displays), and their interfacing with the microcontroller on the custom Arduino that we are building. You will find yourself using these circuits in a lot of future projects/products.

All in all, this training covers the end-to-end hardware development process. After completing the training, you will be confident in designing your own hardware.

Key Skills you will learn

  • Circuit Design

  • PCB Design

  • Hardware testing

  • Troubleshooting hardware issues

Who is this training for

  • Beginners, hobbyists & students getting started in embedded designing.

  • People building hardware for their engineering project.

  • People collecting knowledge to grab an internship or job in the embedded field.

  • You have any of the following questions:

    • a.

      How to convert an idea to a finished PCB?

    • b.

      What is the workflow for designing hardware?

    • c.

      How to approach schematic & layout designing?

    • d.

      How to read the components datasheet?

    • e.

      Where to order the PCB?

    • f.

      Where to get the components?

    • g.

      How are components soldered?

    • h.

      How to test & troubleshoot the circuit?

What will you learn

  • PCB Designing using eagle software

  • Atmega328P Microcontroller based system design (microcontroller used in Arduino Uno)

  • Power supply system design

  • Circuit design for LED, RGB LED, Switch, Preset, Motor Driver, Seven segment Display.

  • Purpose of every single component used & how to select them.

  • How to read components datasheet

  • PCB ordering process

  • Components sourcing

  • Components soldering

  • Hardware Testing & troubleshoot techniques

Why should you take this training

High industry demand

PCB design is one of the key skills required to work as a hardware design engineer in electronics product companies like Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, Microchip etc.

It's everywhere in your life

Whether it's smart watches, smart phones, IOT devices or electric vehicles, PCBs are everywhere. If designing a system based on a microcontroller & microprocessor excites you, then PCB design is for you.

High scope

The total installed base of IOT devices worldwide is projected to be around 30 billion units by 2025. Due to the surge in products being developed, the demand for PCB design engineers is increasing day by day.

Pre - Requisite knowledge

  • Knowledge of electronics basic components is preferable but not mandatory. All the software/tools that you need for the training would be shared with you during the training as and when you need it.


What Students Say


I am lucky enough to have these courses at early stage of my career. So, that I can apply all this knowledge practically in my office

This is a great course. I am doing it and a I am learning a lot, but do not give up if there something that you can not solve. You can ask to the teacher help and he will try to solve it. Go on!

Alejo Bonifacio


Simply the best for anyone who wants to reach to advance level in electronics

Bhushan Suryawanshi


This course was really informative both in Eagle Software and embedded systems design.

Sefa Lök


This course is helping me a lot. As an experienced in the software, it was very difficult to understand hardware stuff. But this course is made for me. I will highly recommend this course for the new enthusiast. Thanks a lot, Piyush.

Atul Ghumade


Excellent course design Peeyush.. i can see complete lifecycle of developement has been covered.. i m extremely happy with the course content.... everything seems well planned...Piyush we want more courses like this... whats new you are coming with.. all the best.

Yashodhan Mandke


This course is excellent. The detailed explanations that the instructor provides throughout all sections are extremely helpful with relevant real world information and examples! I am very excited to have found this course and it is helping me to apply the skills immediately. Thank you!

Michael Passineau


Esse curso está além do esperado! Tem conceitos sólidos de eletrônica, confecção de Placa de Circuito Impresso, e grande desenvolvimento de Firmware na linha do Arduino, além é claro, de vários periféricos utilizados na prática com tal hardware. Curso realmente Fantástico! Completo e Prático!

Newton Curi


Very well done. Every detail from start to finish is covered. Highly recommend for any electronics enthusiast out there.

Harold Crowe


Great course for someone who what’s to get in to designing, all topics are covered in details, from basics of how component work to the implementation using the component in the circuit is explained throughout. Thank you.


South Africa

This is an amazing class. as a software engineer with some hardware experience, he is essentially explaining the entire board and how to make something from scratch. I immediately tried to find out if he had other courses I could potentially buy but found none. Great job!!!! You make this stuff seem somewhat easy!!!

Neil Chokriwala


This course is very good. All the basic interfacing methods of the industrial sensors are explained very clearly. Students who have theoretical knowledge can also take this course to understand the practical implementations of the circuit. Looking forward for more courses.

Benarji Budda


The course is well delivered and the instructor is very motivated to teach. The subject is interesting and relevant as well as well presented! I like and value this course.

Wolfgang Bischoff


I have completed 50% of course so far. A very well paced course, Piyush does not leave anything unexplained. His thorough preparation of this course highlights that he has been in the training/lecturing sphere for many years.I look forward to the other 50% of this course and will update with more reviews later.

Donal O'Shea


Very useful, even if some parts are elementary, it gives students a good introduction to the internals of an Arduino and the requirements of a more rugged version

Rafael Oliva


Amazing lectures helps a lot. definitely exceeded my expectations. However, you need to have some knowledge of electronics before entering or expect to google some terms that are used. I am talking about basic knowledge everything is covered in this course 5 stars. Honest review thanks for this coarse man.

Abed Hameed


Good so far.very detailed covering everything you need to know regarding data logging with all signal inputs and communication outputs.

Casper Rahr



Course is brilliantly designed. Information shared is very helpful for developing the product from component level
