Hello, today I spent a half of my day working on the course board design exercise.
I have already done some pcb before on softwares like altium designer or eagle, but I find expedition pcb far more easy to use! Even if it allows a more complicated use and configuration, since we use only basic features i’m not lost.
The part that I don’t like the most to do when designing a board is trying to link every last pin of the components you want on your board with a pin of the mcu. Luckily this work was made by the entire class so it is faster enough. I’m not sure yet if everything fits in but i started to enter some modules on the design. I’m not finished yet with the schematics but I think I’m able to finish in time.
We spent the rest of the day / evening discussing with Rose Rolls team but I will discuss that in another entry.
