Proteus PCB Design 8.01 SP0 Build 17219
A powerful application that was especially created in order to help designers build and verify more easily the circuit boards they need
Through a well organized interface, which hosts all the necessary tools and commands for building circuit boards and testing them, this application makes it clear that it is meant for advanced users, who have a good grasp on what this type of design is all about.
A simple method of getting started is to load one of the many sample that Proteus PCB Design comes with. This way you can view exactly what this program can be used for and how detailed is the perspective insofar as the schema design is concerned.
The interactive simulations that can be started from Proteus PCB Design are also very helpful, just like the ability to view and edit the properties of every element on the board. The customizations go in depth for each item and there are several viewing options you can use to ease your work.
Besides the schematic capture mode that displays all the devices and their connections, there is another area you might be interested in, namely the 'Source Code' tab where you can make modifications at the most basic level for each element that is part of the loaded project.
Graphs that are included in the design can be edited as well, simulated, verified and exported, while the debugging and simulation of the whole project is also possible. Templates can be edited and saved in a new form, if you need it.
Overall, Proteus PCB Design demonstrates it is a strong contender and one of the best tools in its software category. It comes with a really strong feature pack and the numerous resources it bundles will surely prove helpful for all users.

What's New in This Release:
- Integrated Application Framework:
- The integrated application framework means that ISIS and ARES are now modules with a single application (PDS.EXE) rather than being separate applications in their own right. They can be run in a single window (tabbed mode) or in two separate 'frames' to give a look and feel similar to that in previous versions. Single frame mode will tend to suit laptop users better whilst multi-frame mode makes the best use of multi-monitor desktop setups.
- Other features of the software such as Design Explorer, the 3D viewer and maximized graph windows are also presented as top level application modules which again can be held in a single frame or dragged onto another monitor to give a side-by-side view.
