Hive Interface Board Designs
The schematics were captured and Printed Circuit Board (PCB) layout was done using GPL Electronic Design Automation gEDA tools. Most major distributions have packages that are easy to install. Version 0.3 is the current production model. In addition to the sch and pcb files, you will need the custom symbols (for gEDA schematic) and footprints (for gEDA PCB).
All the CAD tools and files are included on the HiveTool images. To access them from the Pi
From the start menu, go to
Electronics-> gEDA Schematic Editor
The cad files are for the 0.3 board are:
Obsolete do not use Schematics and PCB layout files (Zipped file 158K)
Why is this so big? Or why are the others so small?
Obsolete do not use Schematics and PCB layout files (Zipped file 20K)
Superseded by version 1.0 do not use
