Create a module with XCircuit

xcicon_sm

I discovered XCircuit when looking for an easy and quick way to generate a schematic.
Since I am not going to simulate it, it would be enough to have a vector design program like Inkscape, but it’s never too late to learn a tool that may prove useful in the future.

There are other bigger, better, stronger EDA tools: Geda, KiCAD, EagleCAD… but I settled for something designed for publications.

(…)program for drawing publishable-quality electrical circuit schematic diagrams and related figures(…)

In this post you’ll find a quick overview of XCircuit, and how to create a module with it.

Arduino Clock wiring

Before any soldering or programming happens at all, I’ll need to have a general idea of what connects where.

This post presents the schematic for the Secret Santa Clock and a quick explanation of each “module” of the system. Everything from a bird’s-eye perspective that is enough for you to reproduce it.

show me the schematics
