An easy-to-learn and easy-to-use manual PCB design system.
The main advantages of ExpressPCB are ease of learning, the speed of creating your own base of radio components and microcircuits, and the correct operation of the program. ExpressPCB combines the best of Sprint Layout .

ExpressPCB Editor is designed to manually create double-sided PCBs containing both planar and pinned parts. Added the ability to import a list of nets drawn in ExpressSCH, as well as highlight unconnected pads. Most of the electronic components are numbered with a digital code, which makes it easier to find and purchase them in the future. The "Snap to grid" option allows you to accurately place parts on the board. After the completion of the work, the program reports the approximate price for the production of the board, and the function "Order boards via the Internet" helps to place an order. Both applications have libraries of standard components. Unfortunately, there were some drawbacks. It should be noted that there is no autorouter, support for Cyrillic characters, functions of checking all connections for optimal positioning of parts, preview before printing. ForFor the iron-and-home PCB manufacturing process , ExpressPCB works wonderfully in conjunction with the SwitcherCAD circuit simulation program. Supports the .pcb extension of the P-CAD program.

Despite the simplicity of the program, there are two small step- by -step tutorials for beginners and special tips for PCB layout in English.

The program was written by a small team of American programmers and radio amateurs. The goal of their work is the prompt solution of various production problems through the rapid development and manufacture of high-quality two- or four-layer printed circuit boards, with delivery the next day anywhere in the world. After completing the layout of the board, the program automatically calculates the exact cost of manufacturing the board, and you can order the manufacture of boards on the official website.

ExpressPCB runs under Microsoft Windows NT, 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7. However, you should be careful when downloading the installation files for the program. One of them only works in XP, 2000, and NT, while the other works in Vista and Windows 7.
