Default Electronics CAD software

Hi, there,

I have been used Electronic workbench for quite sometime now, and unfortunately, the copy I have is fairly outdated (from the mid 1990s), and it doesn't have a lot of parts.

questions:

1) what software are you using? their pros and cons?
2) if i am goin to stick with mine (5.0c), where I can get new parts library?

Thanks in advance.

I'm using Eagle Lite, the freeware form of Eagle. It's got the occasional bug and its PC board layout autorouter is semi-comatose, but otherwise it gets the job done. Plus it can export plot files in several formats, which comes in handy if having a board professionally produced. Comes with a decent selection of parts and its editor can be used to build more.

You can download it from here, and if you wanna drop the $200 you can get the standard version that allows more signal layers and a larger board area, or $400 for the pro version that has no limits.

Default PCB software

Hi guys!

Is there a software that can let you draw a schematic and then automatically make a PCB of that schematic?

Thanks,
Jojo

you may want to check the orcad site. Under "Pspice", there are tons of spice models to download.

I have used Pspice extensively, will be using Protel starting this summer, and heard Simplorer is also excellent.
