  • Advanced PCB layout course in Eagle

    Hello everyone,

    I recently enrolled in the Advanced PCB layout course that goes through designing the IMX6 Rex Base board and module, using Altium is currently not an option for me, I would like to use Eagle to implement all activities and submit the project, did anyone go through this before ?

    The main issue now is that all components are provided in Altium format, I did a bit of search and it seems there is no straightforward way to save the components from Altium to Eagle-friendly format, any advice on how to proceed ? it would be time consuming to redraw/re-create all components from the datasheets just to start doing the course activities.

    let me know if anyone has the components in Eagle format or know of a way to convert the files, any advice is greatly appreciated

    Thank you

    I know people converted the design to KiCad (e.g. https://forum.kicad.info/t/fedevel-i...to-kicad/24726 ) and also we have the design in Allegro ( https://github.com/FEDEVEL/board-imx...ule-in-cadence ), but I have not seen anyone to convert it to Eagle.

    Can Eagle import one of these formats?

      Hello Robert,

      Thanks for your quick reply, I tried googling it quickly but it seems not, the most recent posts regarding these conversions are at least 3 years old, so I might ask on the Eagle forum.

      is it possible to have simpler submissions in case the conversion won't work ? for example, fan out only one component ( Ex processor or memory ) instead of all components ? this way I would only have to draw the footprint and make the schematic for less components.

      let me know what you think
