I am thinking about a project that has need for various different complicated wiring connections. I would like to make a single board that would make it as easy as possible to make arbitrary connections between signals. My thought is something like this:
By putting the signals in a configuration such that they all cross every signal from the opposite side at some point, then I can use the vias to make connections by soldering a thin piece of wire in the appropriate hole.
I made this image in Eagle to demonstrate my point, but vias will not work, because they will be always connected all of the time. What I want is the copper on top and bottom but not in the through hole part. Is this possible to do in Eagle? Can most fab houses deal with things like this (I generally use ITead)?
In my final design it will be much larger than this (64 in - 64 out).
