Arduino Shield Starters
These are things that I use in EAGLE when a customer asks for a custom shield for a specific Arduino board.
This is where I started the boards on a previous page.
Why would this be important to you, my customer?
Placing of the connectors requires precision if you are to successfully mate your board to any Arduino board.
I already sweated out that part of the project.
As downloaded, the connectors will mate with the particular Arduino board.
Creating each of these took me 20 to 40 hours of my time.
Even at my lowest rate of $55/hour that would be $1100 to $2200 worth of work or 20 to 40 hours of my life.
How much is an hour of your life worth?
How much would twenty to forty hours of your life be worth?
Probably more, right?
Save time by downloading the Shield Starter!
Each download consists of:
Generate the Gerber files and order your own boards.
For example these are the schematic pages for an Arduino Mega:
And here is what the layout looks like:
These schematic and layout files are available for download if you would like to try them.
Also available is a set of schematic pages and layout for an Arduino Uno.
More of these shield templates will be forthcoming. If there is a particular Arduino shield you are interested in, I encourage you to contact me.
