'[OT]: Good PCB Design Software?'

Hi folks,

    Do any of you use software to design PCB's which fits the following
specs:

    a.  Reasonable learning curve;
    b.  Reasonable cost or shareware;
    c.  Windows 98 environment;
    d.  Stable (ie. few crashes, etc.);
    e.  Needn't be industrial strength, but must
        print traces to laser printer and suggest trace routes;

    As you can tell, I'm new to creating boards, so if you have any other
advice or links to advice in this vein, please let me know. Thanks.

Jim Murphy

       Yes, yes and yes. Circad 98 is THE way to go. I've never found something so easy and simple to work as it. Takes some time to get used to all the features (as the netlist generator/parser/router) but it's wonderful when you learn to use)

       Only one problem: There are NO switches on the libraries!!! Go figure! :oD

       BTW: It's full assembly programmed. No C or other trashes around. Raw data for raw nerves! :o)

Hi Jim,

Try Cadint at http://www.cadint.com .  With their new manuals they now
meet requirement a.  They have a free download version which is
certainly usable at the "home project" or "school project" level.
Upgrade to the full unlimited professional version is seamless (that's
what you are using with pincount restrictions) and in steps that are
affordable for the level of work they allow you to do.   Win98, yes.
Stable, yes.  Industrial strength, yes.  Will print to anything Windows
will but will not suggest trace routes (that's your job).  Has an easy
Gerber output facility which is just a few clicks from a complete zipped
Gerber package that most board houses will accept as is.

Regards,
Dave

Hi Jim,

I am using the ACCEL made by EDA.
I use for some time now, and find it very very good and easy to work with.
Unfortunately is not freeware ...

Do you find that Vutrax has the libraries needed or do you have to develope
these?

Had to create my own library which took a bit of doing originally,but once they are in its done.I even created a simple 'footprint' only library for use on simple pcbs where i skip the schematic stage(i think they call it taping table)and place footprints manually
