Default Protel Questions.

Is there any one out there that uses Protel that i can email and talk to. I need to know if there is some one that uses it so i can email them my PCB file so they can look it over and see what they think of it. This is my first time use'n Protel for PCB making. If no one uses Protel can some one sujest a program that they use and that i can get help from.

thanks Jason

is it your first PCB drawing program, as a first i don't recommend it, its very good thow, but it is quite complicated if you just want to draw a simple layout.

there are plenty of threads on the forum thats suggests witch pcb program you can use.

i myself use ultiboard , but this is only becouse i have to use it on a professional way at work, if it was me i would be using orcad.

JasonL,

I use Protel Version 1.12 for Windows, circa 1991. It certainly works for me. Send me your board design; I'll have a look at it.

Cheers,

Hugh

Jason, what happened to the Macs?

I use Osmond, it is a little clunky, but fairly quick to pick up when you really try. It's also quite good for small projects, and I think you would be fine with that layout above

AFAIK it does, but I'm using 10.1.5 currently, and it works fine on that.

The parts libraries are a little lacking, but I tend to make my own parts, (fairly straightforward), as I need them, that way I know the components are ok and will fit in the space on the board. I have also had a few problems with star grounding as it seem the program will only allow three conections per pin, but there are ways to get around this, especially if you are making your own boards, and don't need them to be produced by a fab plant.

There is also a Yahoo group if you have any problems, the address is on the page below.

Some one said that this schematic that i have is a citation amplifier. or is it the a40? i can't remember. Any way i have a question about the cap's. in the pic shown is my amp that i have up and running right now. But it uses long yellow caps on the board. Do i need these on my actual board that im building now or can they be some kinda other value. If i remember corectly i was told that there on there to improve speed for the amp. Can any one help. the amp is working with them but will it work just as good with out. can i change teh vaules to a difrent Round cap. ? need to know because im in the board prosess.
