Hi all,

I'll check out Express PCB and compare/contrast it with 4PCB.com
and their free software PCB Artist..........4PCB of Colorado as a quick
turn no frills for prototypes......wherein they etch to board and send
it back = just over the weekend = so you can check out your design.....
with this quicky, you don't get the printing on the PCB.....but
is cheap and quick for a check of a layout.

Later, Uncle Phil..........Happy Holidays you-all....72!

    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!

Thanks for the heads-up Chuck, I did a quick calculation and it is WAAAAY cheaper than ExpressPCB for production.
I guess I can use some of my "downtime" to get some board designs finished.

I try to label the PCBs with enough text info etched on the top layer
so you can skip the silk screen and solder mask and still know where
everythng goes.

Futurlec's PCB operation will let you use pretty much any software
design program you might be using.

Just learned about Futurlec this morning... 8-)
