Single sided breadboard arduino

Just got done finishing my breadboard single sided arduino. If any1 wants to .brd for eagle let me know... (or somehow post on playground?)

The 100uf diode

The what?

the capacitor going from power to grounf off supply is backwards :p

Oh, that diode ;)

Lefty

now on capacitors are diodes :p resistors are wires leds are bulbs ics are modules regulators are heat cells solder is molten metal liquid

solder is molten metal liquid

Electronic Glue ;).

By the way, the picture at the top doesn't work for me :|.

there is electronic glue, saves you the heat aspect of it all but its quite expensive compared to solder (and almost always has a higher resistance)

and capacitors are usually measured in farads

and no the link doesn't work for me either :(

but honestly, Chris's last post made little since

diodes are no where close to the same function as capacitors

yea resistors can be made out of wire but only in high wattage applications

led's are technically bulbs, but their technical functionality is about the same as saying humans and cats are mammals

ic's were considered modules, back in the 60's

if your regulator is a heat coil, your doing something totally wrong

and solder is only liquid during application

Lol, is there actually something called electronic glue? Someone's little "motto" off to the side of their name says "Solder is electronic glue", so I just thought it was funny :P.

fixed the link... here it is: http://img138.imageshack.us/i/singlesidedbreadboarddu.jpg/ was jokin bout the parts ::)

Don't worry Chris, you aren't too far off. If you find a 100uF diode, let me know, because it would be a varactor, and if it had a good spread of capacitance change with bias voltage, you'd have a solid state tuning capacitor..

So, yes, the right kind of diode can be a capacitor!

Yes please provide the eagle file , if possible

nice clean board you put together.

here's the final revision for download: http://www.4shared.com/file/187398574/d50b396d/singlesideboarduino1.html

thanks - I will try it out - I like how you kept it simple and clean - easy to make single sided board

be sure to add the .1uf if you want it to automatically reset the board. if not, you'll have to hold down the pushbutton

do you have the eagle sch file as well for this board that you can share? I will keep the reset cap in mind thanks - really useful design

I don't like to criticize people who are trying to be helpful and useful, but... You should learn how to use EAGLE as the CAD package it's intended to be, instead of a "techie" and rather frustrating drawing package. For example, the board you posted features numerous traces that physically overlap pads or other traces, but do not have the electrical connectivity you create by first setting up a "signal" between the actual component leads. You are suffering all the pains caused by EAGLE not really being a drawing package, without getting any of the benefits one gets by using the actual electronics CAD features...

There are quite a few tutorials on using EAGLE at Adafruit, Sparkfun, and/or Instructables. (I don't think any of them talk much about creating boards without a schematic first, but they should still be helpful. And you really SHOULD create the schematic first anyway!)

if i get time ill do a schematic but for now im too busy. what i do to remind myself (sometimes) is hide all layers but tplace. i wanted to draw up a single sided version and have other people use it in their designs. i make a negative picture with eagle and gsview and print the image from gsv to transparency paper, expose the board, drill holes, etch. problem is i ran out of good transparency paper and the cheapo doesnt do the job (well).

Thanks again for help - no problem if you don't have time to do schematic - I thought I would ask in case you had one. Again - thanks for all the tips and help
