Duane - Yes, it is a layout tool ( manual drawing ). Similar to ExpressPCB's drawing tool. Great for simple breakout boards. I recommend the Eagle path for anything beyond that ( which requires schematics and autorouting ). If you are willing to wait on OSH-Park, its a quick (effort wise ) and inexpensive ( $5-$10 ) path to making small interconnect adapter boards, etc that might otherwise be perf board or flying wires.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
