Pcb is a handy tool for the X Window System build to design printed circuit boards. It supports multiple layers and circuit libraries with a resolution of 0.001 inch. Refer to the manual for more details.
The new feature are:
- user interface has been 'cleaned up' - number of key strokes have been reduced by menues - encapsulated PostScript is now supported - all deleted objects can be recovered - most of the operations can also work with 'selected' objects - some circuits and packages are included - fileselect boxes with user defined commands and preset directories make a flexible user interface - the position of element names is now changeable. Both names of an element are changeable - grid settings are either absolute (to 0,0) or relative to the position where it has changed - messages and stderr of external commands can be redirected to a log window - *** a special goodie: *** a functional demo layout with a Motorola 68HC11 microcontroller and LCD display ftp servers (ftp.funet.fi thanks to Matti Aarnio): ftp://ftp.medizin.uni-ulm.de/pub/pcb-1.2 ftp.funet.fi:/pub/???
