EAGLE™ Schematic Capture and PCB Layout software from CadSoft has for over 20 years continuously satisfied electronic design   engineers with low-cost leadership in the Electronic Design Automation   industry.





Whereas   other CAD tool companies have added support for integrated circuit   design, CadSoft chose to remain focused on printed circuit board design  –  users find it easy to use and fast to learn. EAGLE’s code is high quality because it’s been developed by the same software development team for decades.
