Older revisions: ---------------- This is a cleaned up repository that does not contain all the history of the files. For older revisions please check the SVN repository on Savannah: http://svn.savannah.nongnu.org/viewvc/paparazzi-hardware/trunk/?root=paparazzi Techno: ------- PCBs are 4 layers boards. They can be ordered from companies like eurocircuits (www.eurocircuits.com). I solder the components with a fine temperatue controlled iron. The IMU board contains BGA gyros which will require some sort hot hot air method. Tools: This files are produced using Eagle (www.cadsoft.de) version 4.11 for Linux. gerbmerge (http://claymore.engineer.gvsu.edu/~steriana/Python/gerbmerge/) is a free gerber panelisation tool. gerbv (http://gerbv.sourceforge.net) is a free gerber viewer. eagle3d ( http://www.matwei.de/doku.php?id=en:eagle3d:eagle3d ) is a tool that allows generation of povray views of the boards. Outputs: We use the eagle batch CAM processor to generate various outputs. type "make gerber" to generate gerber. type "make printable" to generate postscript and pdf. they will be put in a printable subdirectory in each subdirectory. Directory content: ------------------ panel: Contains configuration files used in conjunction with gerbmerge to produce a pannel to be sent to the PCB manufacturer (eurocircuits). A panel is a big PCB containing several smaller PCB. It allows you to choose which boards you want for your particular system. controller: This are the paparazzi controller boards. sensors: tools: lib: contains eagle library parts for components not found in the standard eagle library.
