Free PCB and Schematic software

If you want to learn electronics for first time, you need to know about electronics theory, component, drawing schematic, and make PCB. You can get electronics theory reference from many sources like book or internet. To draw schematic and build a PCB you can try Eagle, schematic and PCB editor, to make it easy.

EAGLE (Easily Applicable Graphical Layout Editor) is schematic editor, for designing circuit diagrams and a PCB layout editor, which allows back annotation to the schematic. EAGLE includes a basic but functional auto router, or alternatively manual routing can be performed. PCBs designed in EAGLE are accepted by a large amount of PCB fabrication houses without the need to export.

Eagle schematic editor

You can download EAGLE Light Edition free of charge for your electronic project. In EAGLE Light Edition you only allowed make 100 x 80 mm (4 x 3.2 inches) area of schematic; only Top and Bottom wire (2 sides PCB) and the schematic editor can only create one sheet. But, I think this software still useful for student who learn draw schematic and build PCB for simple project.
