I am looking to etch my own pcb for a small project I am working on. I plan
on designing the circuit with Eagle. The circuit itself is very simple, but
requires a lot of traces. It will consist of 12 piranha rgb common anode
leds laid out evenly on a 4x3" board, for which each of the r, g and b
channels will be connected to one tlc59116 driver (so one driver per
color). An external connector provides vcc, gnd and i2c comms.
Now, I know I could do this with a perfboard and lots of wires.
My question is: given the number of traces, does this even sound reasonable
on a one layer pcb (and jumpers on top as needed)? I kind of feel this
really would require more layers, therefore requiring a professionally-made
pcb (which defeats the purpose of diy/hobby/do it for the fun of it)
Keep in mind this is for a personal project, for the fun of learning new
Any advice appreciated.
