Which software is good for PCB design? Do not believe you will!

The Analects: "Workers must first sharpen their tools if they want to do well". For PCB board engineers, a suitable and easy-to-use PCB design software can help them to complete PCB design and PCB design more efficiently. The choice of software will directly affect the progress of the study.

Which software is suitable for beginners who are just getting started? What software can make PCB design experts even more powerful? There are many types of PCB design software on the market. There are paid and free ones. Currently, there are three types of software with relatively high penetration rate: Altium Designer (AD for short), PADS, Cadence allegro. What are their advantages and disadvantages? Let's take a look at the following. Altium Designer (AD)

The design software that most PCB board engineers contact basically starts from AD. AD is a simple and easy-to-learn basic entry-level hardware design software. It is suitable for drawing simple single and double panels and four or six layers. Design and circuit through schematics The perfect integration of simulation, PCB drawing, signal integrity analysis and other technologies allows PCB engineers to design easily. If they can use this software proficiently, the quality and efficiency of circuit design will be greatly improved.

PADS
There are many people using this software, easy to use, simple, and easy to use. Relatively speaking, Protel is more convenient and easy to operate. This software is more suitable for low-end design and can be called the king of the low-end. Its characteristic is that it is easy to interact with the schematic. Unlike Allegro, sometimes the schematic cannot be connected to the PCB. In addition, it also supports real-time modification of the network, which is suitable for small changes or simple board routing.

The biggest advantage of this software is that it is very convenient to repair wires, it is intelligent, and it can display DRC in real time. In addition, it is more convenient to attach the wire, and it is very convenient to route and wind the wire. Nowadays, the advantages of teaming are becoming more and more obvious. Allegro has more advantages than other PCB software in multi-person cooperation.

PCB learning is a long process, and each software has its own characteristics and advantages. PCB engineers should choose the software that suits them according to their own design requirements to make PCB design more efficient and convenient.
