And if you want to handle PCB then use POWERPCB than PCAD.
Best or good cad does not exist.
My points are as follows
- Tool is prooved ?
- What is spread in field broadly.
- Tool chain
Many people use orcad.
---> You can save time to make library.
Because the possiblity is vey high to get similiar schematic file.
If you want to import PCB net.
---> Your choice is orcad or native schemati program.
example : powerlogic and powerpcb
orcad capture and orcad layout
Many people say PCAD pcb is good.
But tool is tool. my friend has used orcad pcb. He has not any problem.
I use powerpcb and also no problem
If you use pcad then it will be your choice.
