eSim Alternatives

    eSim is described as '(previously known as Oscad / FreeEDA) is an open source EDA tool for circuit design, simulation, analysis and PCB design. It is an integrated tool built using open source software such as KiCad and' and is an app in the Education & Reference category. There are more than 25 alternatives to eSim for Windows, Linux, Mac, Online / Web-based and Android. The best alternative is KiCad, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like eSim are Fritzing (Paid, Open Source), LibrePCB (Free, Open Source), Autodesk EAGLE (Free Personal) and EasyEDA (Free).
