Why design circuit boards on paper when you have great software to help? DipTrace is a robust, powerful program that helps you easily design even the most complicated printed circuit boards. Create single- or multi-sheet circuit boards, create schematics, or export net lists to PCB. We especially liked the program's clean and intuitive interface.

All important features for designing and editing are conveniently located as one-touch buttons around the main editing screen. During testing, all program functions ran smoothly and error-free. For professionals who want a reliable PCB-design tool to small-business owners who don't want to spend a lot of cash on software to hobbyists who just want to play around with hardware design, this is a great application.

"Complex, intuitive program"

November 08, 2013  |  By Denesius74

 |  Version: DipTrace 2.3.1

Pros

Unusual combination of complexity with an intuitive interface; Large component library, easily expanded or modified

Cons

Occasional program hang-up, although it has never resulted in lost work. Limitations in working across multiple sheets. Complex, multi-function components have unreasonable limitations

Summary

After examining the trial versions of a number of packages, I purchased the Diptrace version 2.3.0.3 standard package, limited to 1000 pins and 6 board layer. The limitation has yet to be reached in my work, and I am thoroughly delighted with the package. I have referenced the guide book (200+ pages) only briefly, and it is a tribute to the software design that I have mastered the creation of customized components and entire personal component libraries. The conversion of the schematic to final production board is seamless, simple, and easily modified or corrected. The component placement logic is very weak, but this is more of a cerebral rather than CPU function, and my experience with other software packages has not been better.

A highly recommended software purchase, reasonable priced, and with weak points with easy work-around options.
