Review by FileBEAST's Dr Norris

PCB (Printed Circuitry Boards) have to be designed by somebody. Using DipTrace, one can accurately plan out the PCB of their choice. DipTrace emphasizes that it is easy to use, but lets get this straight, it is solely for those who know what they are doing. I loaded DipTrace and was inundated with diagrams and patterns and who-knows what else. There is a wizard for easy PCB creation but still, I was lost. Techinically, DipTrace seems flawless but in terms of user friendliness it is hopeless to the point of hostile.

DipTrace - Info

DipTrace is an advanced PCB design software application that comes with PCB Layout module, powerful auto-router, Schematic Capture and Component/Pattern editors to design your own component libraries. Besides being very simple to learn, which is quite an accomplishment for an engineering software application, the software has a very intuitive user interface and many innovative features.
For instance, a schematic can be converted to a PCB with one mouse click. The board designer can instantly renew the PCB from an updated version of schematic and keep existing placement, routed traces, board outline, mounting holes and other work. DipTrace has a high quality automatic router, superior to many routers included in other PCB layout packages. It can route a single layer (bottom side) and multilayer circuit boards, and there is an option to autoroute a single layer board with jumper wires, if required. Smart manual routing tools allow users to finalize the design and to get the results they want in a blink of an eye.

Accurate shape-based copper pour system with different possible fill types and thermals can be placed to plane layer and manufacturing costs can be reduced by minimizing the amount of etching solution. Another important feature is Design Rule Check (DRC) - the function that checks the clearance between design objects, minimum size of tracks and drills, which ensures board accuracy.

A feature comparing a PCB to a schematic helps detect possible design mistakes and correct them before prototyping.
Output formats are DXF, Gerber, N/C Drill and G-code.

DipTrace allows you import DXF files in PCB Layout and Pattern Editor. Standard libraries contain 50.000+ components.
