One of the most recommended types of print circuit board designer software programs includes a computer program known as the gEDA. The gEDA is an acronym for General (Public License) Electronic Design Automation. The gEDA program features a lot of different aspects that make it one of the most recommended types of electronic design automation programs on the Internet. Here is a look at why so many print circuit board designers choose to use the gEDA.
The first reason PCB designers use the gEDA is because it is free. Unlike other programs that require you to purchase the software the gEDA is free to use because it is available under the general public license program.
The second reason so many PCB designers use the gEDA program is because of the wide variety of computers that can use the program. The gEDA runs on any unix-like operating system so that means it runs on Windows, MAC and linux. The wide variety of computers that can use the gEDA makes it a very popular piece of software amongst PCB designers.
The last reason so many PCB designers recommend gEDA is because of the number of programs that comes with the software download. The gEDA comes with a complete design board program, a schematic program, testing, prototype and the ability to produce the circuit board through a manufacturer. There is also a layout editor that will show designers exactly where the flow of energy goes on their circuit board and where there needs to be corrections or pins placed.
