    PCB software with the best libraries

    Can anyone recommend PCB software with a very extensive and up to date library? It seems like I have to create the part every time I want to use a new component and this is very aggravating. tia

    Hi

    You will never get what you want.

    Library creation is part of the design process, so its a practice you will need to get used to I am afraid.

    :F

    God i hate library creation. It is by far the most annoying thing I've ever had to do lol. Is there at least anywhere to share them? I may be able to develop a site like that... hrm

    You can buy a pretty comprehensive library from http://www.pcblibraries.com. They have libraries for most PCB software. It's organized and well documented.

    Annoying, no, but it is the total foundation of your design and logically the most important process.

    Do you really wan't to trust your design on other peoples parts ?

    :F
