Autodesk EAGLE Alternatives

    Autodesk EAGLE is described as 'electronic design automation (EDA) software. Enabling printed circuit board (PCB) designers to seamlessly connect schematic diagrams, component placement, PCB routing, and comprehensive library content' and is an app in the Development category. There are more than 25 alternatives to Autodesk EAGLE for Windows, Linux, Mac, Online / Web-based and Android. The best alternative is Fritzing. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try KiCad or LibrePCB. Other great apps like Autodesk EAGLE are EasyEDA (Free), OrCAD (All Products) (Paid), gEDA Project (Free, Open Source) and Altium Designer (Paid).

    1. to design circuits, as well as so called "layouts", be it PCB or stripboard or breadboard... very-very handy a tool, very complex but very simple to use.

      Fritzing vs Autodesk EAGLE opinions
      Most users think Fritzing is a great alternative to Autodesk EAGLE.
      _strangeman Fritzing has almost the same functionality BUT much less convenient comparing to EAGLE

      KiCad vs Autodesk EAGLE opinions
      Almost everyone thinks KiCad is a great alternative to Autodesk EAGLE.
      easy, 3d sketching , huge libraries

      I need to print simple PCB, not simulation

      Use Altium if you have more money than time, EAGLE if you are entangled with Autodesk and KiCad if you just want to design PCBs for free.
