A List of Best PCB design software

PCB design software is used to design and create printed circuit boards (PCBs). PCBs are the thin boards that electronic components are mounted on. PCB design software allows engineers to create the schematic (circuit diagram) and layout of the PCB. Once the design is complete, the PCB can be manufactured and assembled.

There are many different PCB design software packages available, ranging from free and open-source software to expensive commercial software. The best PCB design software for you will depend on your specific needs and budget.

Here are a few of the most popular PCB design software packages:

When choosing a PCB design software package, it is important to consider the following factors:

Once you have chosen a PCB design software package, you can start designing your PCB! Be sure to read the software documentation and watch tutorials to learn how to use the software.

Which PCB Design Software is the best?

Now the big question, when you have so many choices which one to choose. My advice is if you can afford, go for Altium Designer otherwise KiCad or Autodesk Eagle are the next best options.

One of the biggest reason I propose Altium is, it is very easy to use and it will improve your productivity significantly.

I can guarantee, you can compare it with other available PCB design software in the market. Also, if you see their last couple of years update, all are focused on to improve the productivity and to empower engineers be more productive. Altium Designer allows engineers to focus on their design not to figure out how to implement design aspect using the tool. Just see their draftsman feature, interactive routing, etc. to start with.

Actually, you must try Altium to realize this fact.

If you don’t find a PCB Design software listed here or you have latest price information, please let me know, I will update.

I am currently working as an embedded systems design consultant and helping companies build custom embedded products, develop test automation solution for their PCB or complete product.
