How SparkFun À La Carte Works

Getting Started with ALC

Let's take a look at how to design a custom board using SparkFun A La Carte. We'll walk through designing a board as well as other helpful tips for using ALC.

Layout Options and Board Preview

ALC may dictate the placement of blocks, but that doesn't mean you can't control board size, connector groups and the addition of standoff mounting holes.

Clone/Resume Past Projects

ALC automatically saves your designs as you work on them, making it easy to pick up where you left off. Let's take a quick look at ways you can edit past projects.

Connectors and How They Work

Connectors are the main method of accessing and manipulating the electrical signals on your ALC board in order to connect to external sensors, switches, radios, and modules.
