MAX7221 Board design help
« on: March 22, 2012, 07:31:17 AM »
Ive got this image, http://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/FV7/2B12/GU0EEF0U/FV72B12GU0EEF0U.MEDIUM.jpg and its the perfect board that i need at the moment. but its a JPG and i cant make a board from a JPG (at least not at http://batchpcb.com/. so im hoping the wonderful people of this forum could help me out here?

If you could also space the ANODE, CATHODE soder points out a tad (im not the greatest Sodderer)

Heres a picture of the finished board aswell, incase you need to see what components are on it

I would REALLY appreciate the help guys!

hello octobarian. what is exactly that you want? a suggestion of how to turn this into a gerber for the pcb manufacturer? well, the simplest way is to remake the pcb with a software such as freepcb or eaglepcb lite. i don't see any other way. pcb manufacturers wont accept jpg's or other images.

Exactly that, if someone could remake this into a gerber file for me that would be amazing.. ive tried to re-create it myself but dont have the
knowledge of PCB boards to do it. If someone could take those images and re-create the gerber file.. i would love you
