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
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.

out again on Thursday.
Happy holidays, everyone!

This is being discussed on EMRFD and it seems amazing to me. Draw your
schematic and the program fills in the part numbers and creates a
project and order at the same time. Check it out.

I love this radio stuff
