Salam to all

I have the electrical components from which i want to make the circuit design to be printed. How can i make the design.

Please suggent any software or any method which may me to such design wich may be printed to make a PCB

if the library of layout software does not have the footprint of your component you need to make it by yourself.
1. you need to know the package(SMD, DIP, ..., ..) of your componet
2. download the datasheet of your component
3. see the dimension mentioned in the datasheet for the specific package.
4. create footprint using any layout design soft. Every soft has option to make footprint manually.

suggested soft:
1. Proteus...

if you cant do it by yourself... just put your task in free lancing website........


Plese guied me the links form where i can download these software free versions.

The only one of those that is free is Eagle, in limited form for non-commercial use.


Or you could try Kicad, I've found it to be extremely good. It is open source and completely free. Compiled versions for Linux and Windows are available. As far as I know it has no limits on schematic or PCB size. I've just sent off a 9 page, 180 x 240mm design to a PCB fabricator and they have checked it, verified the Gerber files are correct and put it in production.

The link goes to the last STABLE release but it is updated daily on Sourceforge.
