Re: Digikey Schematic Drawing Program

go to Expresspcb.com and you can download similar free software. They have express_sch and express_pcb. Both are very similar to each other in operation, except one makes schematics and the other makes PCB patterns. While it doesn't give you digi-key part numbers, it does print out a bill of materials. Also, once you design it, you can order the PCB from them (not free). Another feature is you can link a schematic to your PCB design. While designing the PCB, when you click a pin on a part, it highlights all the other parts/pins that pin is supposed to connect to.
One advantage of the DIgikey software is, being web-based, it works with Linux as well as Windows. The Express software only works on Windows.
We're expecting a houseful of company tomorrow, so all my hobby stuff is temporarily put away. It will come out again on Thursday.
Happy holidays, everyone!
