Re: Schematic Drawing Software

 

Mr. Farhan, 

Thanks for the an details, I believe you verified my belief behind my question. 

I had loaded up Kicad and Eagle along with other stuff on my Linux box that I built last year and had lightly looked at both, my boot loader got hosed late last year, and I haven’t made time to overcome that obstacle….yet…need to do that finding it harder every day to exist without it.

Thanks,

Craig

craig, 

i used it for a bit and then i switched to kicad and never looked back. upverter worked well for me. but i couldnt get a footprint for si570 into it. i find kicad much easier to work with unless i am wrestling with their unfortunate library system. 

it takes an hour to learn kicad, my suggestion would be to get it over and done with. firstly, it is powerful enough to design some of the most complex systems (CERN's Large Hardon Collider for instance). second, it is not  cripple-ware, you get the full version for free. Last, it will keep getting better all the time. it is open sourced.

Mr. Farhan, 

Do you use upverter? Do you mind sharing, for how long? To what extent?

I looked at their model, it seems to be free for some level of service then inside app charges for more? But, I had to dig to find that.

How viable to do what....and to what level? 

It sounds like a interesting concept, but to use something like this it is useful to know what the limits are for free, before investing time in something to almost achieve and then  run into a money wall.

I  did not register, yet, but probably will when rested and look at it again tomorrow.
