Intel Edison Libraries for CadSoft EAGLE PCB

Hello Intel & Edison Enthusiasts,

Intel has done an outstanding job making schematics and software available to makers (https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/do-it-yourself/support/maker/edison/edison-documents-and... Intel® Edison Boards Hardware Support)

I realize that there are many PCB design programs on the market and Cadence Soft's Allegro (http://www.cadence.com/products/pcb/pcb_design/pages/default.aspx Cadence Allegro PCB Designer ) is probably the number one choice for Intel and many other global leaders. However, makers generally don't have budget for Allegro. Many use Eagle Cadsoft's EAGLE PCB (http://www.cadsoft.de/ CadSoft EAGLE PCB Design Software|Support, Shop, Tutorials), especially the free version. Many manufactureres electronics suppliers also provide free libraries for EAGLE.

The board file provided by Intel was (unsurprisingly) desiged in Allegro: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24514/eng/H49904_002_R02.brd.zip http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24514/eng/H49904_002_R02.brd.zip and thus cannot be opened in EAGLE.

Is there any chance that the Intel engineers could port the file into a EAGLE compatible version?

Many thanks on behalf on the many EAGLE users out there...

Hello WX3080,

I'll pass your request to the team in charge of the schematics. On the other hand, if you need the footprint of the Edison module, SparkFun has a template in Eagle that you might find useful: https://www.sparkfun.com/news/1591 Enginursday: A Template for Edison Blocks - News - SparkFun Electronics. Other option would be to make your own Edison library in Eagle; I know many makers do that when they don't have the components they need.

Regards,

Diego.
