Do we need them?
« on: March 28, 2008, 12:51:19 PM »
I search around and found some expensive programs. And now i ask. Do we really need them? They say that they can make from schematic a pcb. Is tis true?
Are they so helpful?

depends on what you do. If a simple PCB is required, then they worth not the money. But if you start with 2 or more layers and more complicated PCBs wit lots of pins and ICs, then this is a one way road...

I am new to designing with a software but i can assure you, it worths it.

You guys really need to check out Target 3000 v.15.

It can do a lot of things, and its free!!!

The Target 3000, PCB_Pool program, has unlimited pins, size, sim, 3D, and it prints and save. Only the format can only be used by PCB-Pool. But you can use it for film and transfer DIY.

When the new Target 3000 v.15, PCB-Pool program comes out, it will have a full featured Electra Auto Router. A $2,500.00 program, for free!
