DesignSpark and DesignSpark PCB Version 3.0

Join DesignSpark for access to exclusive electronics design resources, including the FREE award winning DesignSpark PCB circuit design software.

The NEW release of DesignSpark PCB Version 3.0 features;

  • Spice Simulation
    Simulation interface enables an engineer to export netlists from DSPCB to several popular simulation tools including LTSpice and TINA.
  • Design Calculators
    Design Calculators allows an engineer to quickly measure/calculate impedance, capacitance, and heat dissipation in their designs with this in built tool.
  • Groups
    Groups allows multiple items in your design to be associated together so that they act as one ‘unit’. Once defined, Groups can be used to assist in selecting related portions of your circuit. This can be used to also forward Group changes from Schematic to the PCB Layout.
