    Greeting all, I would like to know if anyone has any info on a video
    distribution amplifier, such as the PCB layout or overlay? I have one
    from Elektor, but am looking for another.

    This is to assist me in the understanding and drawing the things in
    AutoCAD.

    Thanks for your time

    I found the OPA692 an exellent IC to drive many video outputs(10)
    simultaneously.

    You do not write how many outputs you want, what supply is available and
    what kind of assemby you use (through hole, SMD, wave, reflow). All require
    a different layout. Autocad is not good for layouts, it cannot make the
    required processing to produce Gerber files. It also cannot link to a
    schematic or netlist and doesn't have any suitable libraries. I recommend
    Eagle(cadsoft) which is free for the size of board you will need.

    Thanks, Ban. I was simply going to say, "Whoever talked you into trying
    to do electronics with AutoCAD is insane." But I did look, and it looks
    like they're trying to do it - but heck, for the schematics you could
    do with AutoCAD, you might as well use PC Paint. ;-)

    Cheers!

    Thanks everyone who repied,

    It is worth noting that there are blocks in ACAD for different
    applications, but i would be easily convinced that there are easier
    design programs to use. But that is how i had to display the unit. I
    did not provide enough information about what i wanted, but thanks
    again for your time

    Cheers
