ChunkSchematic is a simple, yet incredibly powerful and flexible schematic capture software package for Windows. At Chunk Systems we design effects pedals for bass guitar. For years we've been looking for a reliable and affordable schematic capture tool which gives us results in a useful netlist format. Eventually we gave up and wrote our own.
Anyone can download and use ChunkSchematic, but a license for the correct pin count is required to export a netlist. You can obtain licenses in two ways:
1. You can purchase them at an affordable price.
2. You can contribute to the publically available library of parts for ChunkSchematic. Chunk Systems will reward your contribution by offering you extra license capacity.
The idea behind this purchasing system is that ChunkSchematic can be useful for everybody from hobbyists and students through to professional engineers.

Our electronics design software includes two applications, one for drawing schematics, the other for PCB layout.

Free Routing Software
Free push & shove routing software a new high quality push & shove routing software for printed circuit boards is available.

The application is written in Java and currently completely free.
It communicates with host PCB-design systems via the standard Specctra (Electra) DSN Interface. There exists also an interface to Cadsoft Eagle.

The interactive push&shove router is production stable and unsurpassed in its free angle capabilities.

The autorouter is currently under development.
It is already stable in the standard 45 degree routing mode.
The speed of the autorouter is still a bit slow, but the quality of the routing results is very good when compared with the results of existing autorouters.

As of August 23, 2006, the full version of Ranger2 PCB CAD software is now available as a freeware version. According to the manufacturer, it has become uneconomic to sell Ranger2 due to the administration costs involved. But rather than discontinue a very popular product, the company has decided to offer it as a freeware version. All Ranger2 designs and libraries are fully upwards compatible with the current Ranger2 XL and Ranger XL packages.
Key features include:
* Schematic: eight sheets - A5 to A1; auto-allocation of parts and pins; macros; up to eight power rails.
* ArtWork: 25 µm resolution; 16 000 pins, 1400 components; 16 layers; 16 track and 16 pad sizes per design; an 800 by 800 mm PCB area; gate and pin swapping; back annotation; signal highlight; autorouter (single or double-sided).
* Outputs: printers/plotters with Windows drivers, Gerber, NC drill files and HPGL.
* General: Futurenet pinlist input; Gerber input.
* DXF: transfer and interfaces to Specctra auto-router.

ZenitCapture Schematic is easy to learn and fast to use. Schematic designs can be created quickly using the easy-feature toolset available.
A schematic is a sketch of an electrical logic. It contains the electrical connection between component symbols by the use of signal wires. A schematic in ZenitCapture can have several pages and can be lead to a layout by a Netlist File.
ZenitPCB Layout is an excellent tool to create professional printed circuit board.
It is a flexible easy to use CAD program, which allow you to realize your projects in a short time.
ZenitPCB Layout is completely freeware for personal or semi-professional use, limited to 800 pins.

CR-8000: Product-centric 3D PCB Design Platform
Building a competitive product today is much more difficult than a few years ago. Existing PCB-centric design processes are limited to a single PCB and do not provide the necessary tools for today’s competitive product development environment. PCB-centric design processes are falling behind.
CR-8000 is a product-centric design solution that provides the tools to optimize a design at both the product and PCB design level. Product-centric design processes provide architectural validation of the design against product requirements. Validating the product architecture against the product requirements significantly reduces delivery risk. Product-centric detailed design includes 2D/3D multi-board design and implementation, FPGA I/O optimization, chip/package/board co-design, and 3D MCAD integration all in one design process.

CADSTAR: Cost-effective Single-board Design
CADSTAR is a complete design environment for PCB design – from initial concept through to product realization.
With a unified suite of applications, engineers can seamlessly define, visualize, implement and verify their designs.
Optimized for the typical small and mid-sized design team, it also appeals to individual all-rounders and corporations operating across multiple sites.
