It's been a while since I've done a home made PCB, and I've kind of lost my grip on the finer points of the process :D
I went to my local shop, bought a single sided copper blank PCB. Did my layout on eagle, all set.
I plan on doing the usual: components on the non copper side, through the holes, and solder on the copper side. For making the PCB I'll be doing toner transfer. Not really worth it send off a design to a PCB shop for a single unit.
So, quick and dumb question: For toner transfer, do I print my layout straight out, or mirrored? I figure it's gotta be straight out so that when I transfer to the copper on the bottom side, the image "seen" on the top (component) side won't be inverted, and the IC pins will line up right.
But, last time I did a PCB I remember I said "yeah, that's it" and in the end I screwed up and the whole thing was inverted. So I better confirm this time.
