KiCad is an open source software suite for electronic design automation (EDA) - designing schematics of electronic circuits and printed circuit boards (PCB). KiCad is developed by Jean-Pierre Charras. And features an integrated environment between schematic capture, bill of...
KiCad vs PCB opinions
Amazing variety of tools and libraries. Becomes better day by day.
Autodesk EAGLE is an electronic design automation (EDA) software. Enabling printed circuit board (PCB) designers to seamlessly connect schematic diagrams, component placement, PCB routing, and comprehensive library content.
The gEDA project has produced and continues working on a full GPL'd suite and toolkit of Electronic Design Automation tools. These tools are used for electrical circuit design, schematic capture, simulation, prototyping, and production.
Its advanced simulation engine can handle both analog and digital circuits and features realtime always-on analysis. It is the perfect companion to students, hobbyists, and engineers.
Altium Designer software is for PCB design. From schematic capture to PCB design as well as FPGA Programmation, signal integrity check, mixed analog/digital simulation, this software is what you need when it comes to PCB design and all aspects of ECAD/ MCAD and team...
