Input a micro controller into Eagle circuit 6.2.0 light

    I'm trying to pull in an ATMEGA168A-PU Atmel 8 Bit 16K AVR Microcontroller into Eagle and have looked through the libraries provided through their website, does anyone know where i can find it or and equivalent controller?

    You'll probably need to create your own. Should be a generic footprint for a 40-pin DIP (assuming that's what you have) that you can probably copy and use for your own (you still need to do the 'wiring' from the schematic part to the PCB footprint). Since it's been a while since I've used Eagle, and since they'd do a better job of it anyway, this is covered in the tutorial:
