Topic: Custom Shield (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

Hi:

I would like to customize my own shield.

I finished the breadboard development already.

I have a prototype shield, but that is for human soldering.

Is there some software just for arduino shield development. I find circuits.io online, but it seams could not support schematic and PCB design anymore.

And is there any PCB manufacturer for arduino development whose manufacturing price could be cheaper than normal PCB manufacturer?

Thanks!

No.

No.

I use Eagle to make all my PCBs, you lay out a schematic, then the PCB layout. You can get PCBs made in China (GOOGLE will help you here) - Some also do Assembly & BOM sourcing. You may even find forum members local to you who can do the assembly.

I will design & code for you, but I will also charge you (PM me)

There's no reason why a PCB manufacturer would charge less for Arduino development. If anything, they would charge more since the beginner hobbyist types in the Arduino community are probably the most likely to send them screwy design files that are a big hassle.

OP,
You should use EAGLE and then download a design file of a proto shield, say from sparkfun.com or adafruit.com. They both sell proto shields. You can base on their design and add your elements to make a shield of your own.
