G400-S Eagle Library


#1

Hi,
This is probably going to be a very big ask but I was wondering if anyone has an eagle library for the G400-S and would be willing to share the library. I’m working on a prototype PCB when I have time and I was hoping to use the G400-s as the main MCP.

Thanks
Robin

It is already available in the fez raptor design.


#3

Hi Gus,
does the fez raptor come with additional design resources or are you suggesting i use the fez raptor and build a module?

thanks
Robin


#4

No, I believe he is suggesting that the foot-print is available in the schematic for the FEZ Raptor.


#5

I don’t think the Eagle files are available for the Raptor?


#6

Ok, but the schematic i believe is a pdf or is there also an eagle schematic?


#7

Gadgeteer codeplex used to have Hardware folder with eagle files, but it is missing now.

Not exactly sure what you’re looking for (I’m mostly a software guy)… EAGLE files:

FEZ Raptor: http://www.ghielectronics.com/downloads/model/FEZ_Raptor_Mainboard_3DM.zip

G400-S: http://www.ghielectronics.com/downloads/model/G400_S_3DM.zip

Hi,
Thanks for info everyone, just checked with support regarding an eagle library for the G400 s but its not available. Guess i will either have to use the fez raptor or have a go at producing an eagle library for the G400 s.

Thanks
Robin

@ Jeff - those are the 3D models not eagle files.

@ ScubaBoy - The library file is not available from GHI, however, you can copy the schematic symbol from the Raptor schematic and a copy of the symbol w/ accompanying PCB footprint will be available for you to use without a separate library in your own design.


#12

@ Aron - Am I missing something? I do not see the Raptor eagle files in the Resources tab?


#13

@ Aron - I could only find a PDF version of the schematic is the eagle schematic on another page?

Learning to make libraries is a good thing anyway. Better to trust your own work than have a PCB made that’s got wrong footprints etc. Been there, done that :slight_smile:

I use Altium Designer and creating the library part for for the G400S and G400D only took an hour or 2. Included checking and double checking etc. I am not familiar with Eagle but shouldn’t be too difficult and you’ll learn a necessary requirement at the same time anyway.

What out for the fact that the G400S has board cutout requirements.

@ Mike - You are quite right Mike… :-[ I was not aware of the status of the files. We are currently preparing them as we speak to upload.

@ ScubaBoy - Please check in a few minutes as we are uploading them now.
