50,000 Users Download Free PCB Tool via DesignSpark

RS Components, Allied Electronics' parent company based in the United Kingdom, recently launched DesignSpark.com, an online community that provides resources, design support and a free PCB tool for engineers. Now on its second version, the DesignSpark PCB tool is a free PCB design software package. More than 50,000 users have downloaded DesignSpark PCB since launching eight months ago, with the tool proving to be one of the most popular free PCB design software packages available.

A key feature of the PCB tool is the 3D viewer, which enables engineers to see a three-dimensional representation of their board at any stage during design, allowing fast evaluation of mechanical design requirements within their existing eCAD package. Library features and output graphics allow users to create and save new libraries, move components directly to libraries from the design view, and provide flexibility in reports and print options.

"Free-to-use software tools are valued by engineers when they reduce not just cost, but time-to-market for new designs," says Martin Keenan, RS Technical Marketing Engineer for DesignSpark PCB. "With new 3D visualisation, enhanced features and functionality, DesignSpark PCB delivers faster development and migration for free, meeting the requirements of our user community."

DesignSpark PCB remains unique in the industry as a free, fully-featured PCB development environment. The software is free to download for new users at www.designspark.com/pcb, with feedback and user support forums also available on www.designspark.com
