Couple years ago I started development on my own EDA Package, and at that time I finished a good portion of the schematic part. Unfortunately, life got in the way and I had to put the project to rest for a while.
Well in the meantime, life got out of the way again and I have resumed on this project. It is my goal to create an easy to use, affordable, and powerful complete EDA package including libraries, schematic, and pcb all together under 1 roof.
In it's current state, the schematic library editor is fully functional as is the schematic editor.
Netlist generator works as well, though it currently only outputs netlists in Tango format which I used to test my generator. Since we still use Tango at my father's company, I had lots of designs to test my generated netlists at. Success rate was 100% =)
The schematic error checker is a little overzealous right now, but it's there. I will do more work on it at a later point in time unless any serious issues arise with it.
With the schematic side primarily up and running I am now working on getting the basics for the pattern editor working and then get the pcb side running. You will actually see a test document when you start the app that tests my pads for the pattern editor. =)
What I am looking for right now is input, suggestions, feedback, bug reports, etc. Any input, both good and bad is appreciated.
So if anyone feels like playing around with this, I would love to hear your comments!!
The application can be download here:
Just extract the archive anywhere you like, run iEda.exe in the bin directory to start the app.
For those who may not have winrar to extract the rar archive:
The application also requires the .Net Framework 2.0 which can be found at the following location:
It is a one-time install only.
The latest version of DirectX is also required, though not reccomended. If available, and if the video card supports DirectX9, the application uses a hardware accelerated renderer for drawing. If not, it falls back to standard software GDI. The latest version of DirectX 9 can be obtained here:
If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or just post a reply, I will be happy to assist.
Thanks in advance for anyone who wants to check this out =)
