'Schematic Entry Program'

Does anyone know of a free (either Freeware, Shareware, etc...) analog
schematic entry program?  I don't need simulation capabilities or anything
fancy-just something to enter a schematic into.  The evaluation versions of
most programs are too limited for my needs (can't place enough parts).

Thanks,

Vincent Deno

Take a look at http://www.cadsoft.de

The Eagle Lite version is free but quite usable.

try the eagle layout editor http://www.cadsoftusa.com/ they have a demo
version (very limited) a freeware version (size limited but works okay for
me) and you can register it for $45 (a good price)

it also does layout of cirquit boards

I have a licensed copy of Electronics Workbench with the original disks,
manuals, etc. that I would sell cheap.  It is a great program for doing
digital, analog, or mixed signal spice simulation.  Only problem with it is
they made one very major bonehead move when they wrote the software.  I got it
mainly becase I needed a schematic entry program that would output a netlist
that was compatible with my Traxmaker autorouter.  Being mainly a Spice
simulation program there are no PICs in the parts library since they can't be
simulated.  Since there are also no other 18 or 28 pin DIP parts either I can't
do a schematic of a PIC circuit.  Now I have $300 software that is totally
useless to me.

You can define custom parts on the software, but they won't output in the
netlist.  Unfortunately, I was about 5 days past the 30 day return period
before I had a cance to use it and they refused to take it back.  Therefore I
bad mouth their software any chance I get.  Now how many new sales have they
lost?

While on the subject, does anyone use Circuitmaker?  Does it have the same
problem?  I wouldn't think so since they make Traxmaker also and have more of
an interest in a program that is usefull for schematics as well as simulation.

Actually my favorite is my old Dos version of OrCad.  I can draw a schematic
with my keyboard 5 times as fast as as opening menus and dragging parts around
with the mouse in any Windows schematic program I have used.  If there was only
a way to make the netlists work with Traxmaker.

They do a windows based schematic-only package.
It's interface takes some getting used to but once you've cracked it, it's a
great program. You can design your own parts in minutes.

Brain,

I use both CircuitMaker 6.0 and Traxmaker 3.0......................no
problem with this.
Create your own parts and output to Traxmaker.

Even with the older versions this worked fine.

CircuitMaker is far better that Electronics Workbench in every way.
Unfortunately, Electronic Workbench got into the schools (like Apple) and
everyone got tricked.(and still are getting tricked)

David,

Thanks.  That was my second choice, guess it should have been my first.  I
looked into both of them and decided on Electronics Workbench mostly because of
the money back guarantee.  Now if I only had the time to use it in the 30 days
that feature would have been usefull.

Hi,
only for schematic entry (no PCB!) I recommend EEDRAW. It is on the
SimtelNet. The source is also available. Unfortunately, the s/w is not
bug-free, as there are some function combination (I do not recall, sorry)
causing crash and so data loss. That's why it is adviced to save data on
regular intervals. The software is free.
I hope this helps.
Imre
