need help with Eagle
« on: March 24, 2012, 11:34:18 AM »
Bought the Eagle Light, learned the basics, but have an issue with the IC packages in the Library that don't have the power and ground pins on the part. I find it very difficult to add a bypass cap to VCC or even get the VCC and GND connected to the chip in a schematic and impossible in the board layout. There is probably a simple explaination, but I can't find it. Help please.

It's hard to help when you don't say what part you need help with. I think you said in another thread you're using a PIC. If so you can get Eagle footprints from Microchip's web site. The Microchip parts are in some normalized format, and you'll have to download a manager program to translate them to Eagle part format. If you search for "Eagle part" on the Microchip site I'm pretty sure that will bring you to it.
