Bryce just released a new library for the electronics layout program EAGLE, which contains parts which were often used in 8bit computers. It includes parts such as:
Sound / Speech:
- AY-3-8912 (24 + 28pin)
- 50way edge Socket
- Cartridge PCB edge
Floppy Controllers / Data Seperators:
All parts include schematic symbols and footprints including stoplack, silkscreen, names, values, etc. The pins have also been correctly defined to allow proper ERC and DRC confirmation checks. The library is compatible with EAGLE 5.x and 6.x. To install it, just copy it into the library folder. You can download it from the CPC Wiki forums or at the end of this news.
UPDATE: Bryce just added new components to the library:
- New Cartridge Edge connector (the old one didn’t comply with certain PCB manufacturers strict rules).
- Added the 29F040 with socket foot-print (as used on the MegaFlash).
I updated the download on this page and you can – of course – get it from the CPCWiki forums, too.
This file can be used with Eagle 5.x / 6.x and includes parts such as:
Sound / Speech: SPO256, MEA8000, AY-3-8910, AY-3-8912 (24 + 28pin), SID
CPC Specific: CRTC6845, ACID, 50way edge Socket, Cartridge PCB edge
Floppy Controllers / Data Seperators: UPD765, FDC9216, FDC9266, SED9420
