DIY Arduino Power Supply Shield using EasyEDA

Use a FREE Web-Based Tool to Master simulation, PCB design, footprint creation, Gerber files viewing, and 3D PCB viewing


EDA cloud tools that are related to electronics are emerging exponentially in almost all aspects (i.e. simulation, PCB design, footprint creation, Gerber files viewing, and 3D PCB viewing). Even well-known desktop programs like EAGLE CAD and Altium are trying to compete in this field by making their own services or by acquiring others.

The EasyEDA website provides a great platform for creating custom electronic designs. In this tutorial, we will use EasyEDA to create a custom Arduino power supply shield. This shield will allow us to easily connect an external power source to our Arduino board. We will use a simple switch to control the power flow to the Arduino. This shield will be very useful when working with high-powered devices that require more current than the Arduino can provide on its own.

This course will provide you with everything you need to know about Microsoft Outlook. You will learn how to effectively use Outlook to manage your email, calendar, and contacts. In addition, you will learn how to customize Outlook to fit your specific needs. By the end of this course, you will be an Outlook master!

In this course, we will be using EasyEDA to design and build our own Arduino Power Supply Shield. This shield will allow us to power our Arduino from a variety of different power sources, including batteries, solar panels, and AC adapters. We will also learn how to use EasyEDA’s powerful circuit simulation tools to test our design before we build it.

Why you should take this course?

  • EDA is the best place to design your Arduino power supply shield

  • Designing your own circuit board with EDA is fun, fast, easy, and inexpensive

  • You can also simulate your design before you order boards. This saves time and money

  • All the parts you need are on the EasyEDA website, including suppliers

  • You can walk through tutorials or consult an expert for help in designing circuits

  • There are 2D and 3D views of the PCB created for reference

  • The 3D view lets you zoom in to see how small components fit together perfectly

  • Ordering boards is quick and easy.

Web-based EDA tool suites like EasyEDA and Upverter are getting rapidly famous. These online tools offer some outstanding solutions for collaboration and provide some viable features for teams with financial limits like multi-layer PCB designing, while it costs a lot to buy a license for other EDA tools with a multi-layer feature, for example.

In this course, EasyEDA is going to be explained to live the experience of using this web-based tool. It’s not hypocritical to say that this tool is a very sophisticated tool that has everything you need to make your PCB in no time.
