WEBENCH® Tools/LDCCOILEVM: WEBENCH Coil Designer Eagle Consistency Issues

Part Number: LDCCOILEVM

Tool/software: WEBENCH® Design Tools

Hello,

I used the Webench Coil Designer to recreate coil Q from the LDC reference coils set, since I'm trying to implement it in a design in Eagle 9.0.1.

When exporting the file, I didn't get a schematic (although the readme.txt referred to using it) and tried to use the .brd and .scr to put the coil in my designs, but it didn't work.
I followed the steps in a different thread with the LDC1000.zip, but that only gives me 9 consistency errors with "schematic and board are not consistent".
I also tried using Eagle 7.1.0, but without success, it gave the same errors.

Also, when I downloaded the LDCCOILEVM Design file to get the schematic of coil Q into Eagle through the gerber files, it seems I am missing something to get it to work?

What do I need to do to resolve this issue?

Kind regards,

Ricardo A. Rodrigues

    Hello Pradeep,

    Here is the coil design I'm working on: webench.ti.com/.../

    It's the same coil as coil Q from the LDC Reference Coils, specified for the LDC1614

    Sincerely,

    Ricardo A. Rodrigues

    Hi Ricardo,

    Thanks for sharing the design. I am able to export from WEBENCH Coil Designer and able to import in Eagle v7.2. 

    As shown above the coil is 4 layer and therefore needs 3 vias. Since there was not enough room at the center it placed a via outside and two at the center. The coil is connected to capacitor. There is no schematic exported for this coil. The readme will be updated in future. 

    Thanks,

    Pradeep
