Free PCB CAD Software

This is a comparison of printed circuit board design software. Our criteria for including a PCB CAD program are:

  • There should be a version available for free (no money).
  • The free version should not be time limited, i.e. you should be able to use the software indefinitely without needing to pay for it.
  • The free version should provide schematic and board design and should generate some form of output that can be used to manufacture boards.
  • The software should be actively developed and supported.
