Farnell has announced that the upcoming version 6.0 of its CadSoft EAGLE PCB design software will integrate functionality that provides a direct connection between board layout and the Eurocircuits PCB prototyping service.
Identifying PCB service providers, generating customised quotations and ordering of prototype PCBs is a time consuming and error prone process. Farnell says in future this will be driven by the engineer from the CadSoft EAGLE user interface.The update, which will smooth and speed board level design and PCB prototyping, can also be applied to existing 5.10 and 5.11 versions of the software via an User Language Program (ULP) download via http://www.cadsoftusa.com/cadsoft-downloads/. Customers operating versions of EAGLE that are older than 5.10 can upgrade their license to benefit not only from the integrated direct link to Eurocircuits, but also the current ‘Buy now get your upgrade for free’ campaign that will allow them to secure their copy of version 6.0.
“This important announcement further strengthens our partnership with Eurocircuits to the ultimate benefit of users of CadSoft EAGLE,” said Thomas Liratsch, General Manager CadSoft Computer GmbH. “Engineers are under considerable and growing pressure to deliver their new designs to market in the shortest possible time, so providing integrated connections between PCB design and PCB prototyping will prove extremely valuable.”
