    Adding new components

    Hello, I have some projects on my mind and I have everything ready but the PCB.

    The problem is that I'm gonna have to add some new components with weird pin distributions and I wanna know if there is a special recommendation on pcb design software for this.

    What I really mean is that I can't use any components of the libraries and I would like to make new ones.

    The PCB won't use more than 2 layers so the software design hasn't to be so powerfull, I just need to add what I need easily.

    Thanks for your time

    Re: Adding new components

    I don't really understand the question. ALL PCB software allows you to add new components so take your pick within your budget. Generally the larger, more expensive packages take more time to learn. There are a few free software packages out there which are usable. Do a search.

    To other posters - don't let this thread degrade into a "This software is best" thread or I will close the thread.

    Hi Fumikon. Keith is right. You can use any PCB software or you could subcontract the job. Check out this video to see how PCB design of a simple board can be done: Start with Altium Designer – All in 17 minutes Tutorial - (FEDEVEL)
