EasyEDA Hack Chat With Dillon He

Join us Wednesday at 5:00 PM Pacific time for the Easy EDA Hack Chat with Dillon He!

Note the different time than our usual Hack Chat slot! Dillon will be joining us from China.

Since the birth of electronic design automation in the 1980s, the universe of products to choose from has grown tremendously. Features from schematic editing to circuit simulation to PCB design and autorouting can be found in every permutation imaginable, and you’re sure to find something that fits your needs, suits your budget, and works on your platform.

Dillon He started EasyEDA back in 2010 with Eric Cui, and since then the cloud-based EDA tool has become a popular choice. From working across teams to its “run anywhere” capabilities, EasyEDA has become the go-to tool for hundred of thousands of designers. Dillon will drop by the Hack Chat to answer all your questions about EasyEDA — how it started, where it is now, and what we can expect in the future.

    1. Really? I don’t see anywhere in the picture where a hole/via has a mask aperture. The most prominent aperture in the mask looks like a test pad. While it isn’t perfectly centered, the entire pad is accessible (mask looks to be about a track width shifted to the right). The drill to copper registration while not perfect looks perfectly reasonable.

      Am I missing something?

    2. Interesting to see that people have such low expectations of fab quality. I understand with cheap fabs for hacker use, more tolerances are ignored, but basic accuracy is a must in my opinion. I have been in Electronics Manufacturing for 28 years and fab houses delivering this type of quality are promptly disqualified if they are unable to change their ways.
      The mask around the test pad is the obvious indicator that the soldermask registration is bordeline. It’s nearly causing an exposed trace as well. The hole in the via in the upper left is what shows that the drill registration is equally lacking. Tolerances are for defining allowed inaccuracies, not for allowing poor workmanship. Not sure how I missed the point of the post since it is about EDA not fab houses. Your design can be perfect, but if you are using a horrible fab house, guess what you get?
