DipTrace 3.3 is development software that is designed for creating schematic diagrams and printed circuit boards. It possesses the quality of Schematic Capture and PCB Design software. These are added to offer everything to create simple or complex multi-layer boards from schematic to manufacturing files. Basically, it can be said that it is a package that has further components of four separate programs and these programs are Schematic Capture, Component Editor, Pattern Editor, and PCB Layout. Schematic Capture is a feature that is ranked as an advanced tool that has the ability of circuit design tool with support of multi-sheet and multi-level hierarchical schematics. This feature included has the ability of a number of features for visual and logical pin connections.
The option of Cross-modules management shows that basic circuits can be converted to PCB in quick easy steps, after this it can be back annotated, or imported or exported from or to other EDA, CAD, and net-list formats. Verification and Spice export for simulation allow for full project analysis. The addition of PCB Layout is made because it is one of the high-level engineering tools which is designed especially for board design with smart manual routing, shape-based auto-router, advanced verification, and wide import or export capabilities. This is a promising software that is always present to please its users as after a couple of hours the users become productive with simple boards and then improve their skills step-by-step. The included features are only added to the package for simple projects and advanced capabilities.
