Sprint-Layout is an application that can help you design and edit your printed circuit board layouts. This tool provides the necessary features for creating single-sided, double-sided, or multilayer PCBs from scratch.
The user interface is clean, and its functions are neatly displayed into the main window. Before starting to draw and add components to your PCBs, you should firstly define the board dimensions by specifying the width and height.
Sprint-Layout provides many useful tools for creating board designs, such as solder pads, SMD pads, tracks, zones, text-labels, and many others. Hotkeys are also available and they can be reassigned.
It features a built-in auto router that can help you route the tracks, and a photo view function for previewing the PCB layout.
The program includes an extensive library with predefined components for SMD layouts. Moreover, you can draw and add your own components to the library. It is possible to drag and drop a component directly to your layout, and to move, rotate, or label it. The rotation can be carried out to any angle.
The automatic ground-plane feature can help you fill the unused areas of your board with copper automatically, while the test function allows you to check all the connected layout-elements.
You may create several boards and get quick access to each of them thanks to its multi-tabbed support. The application is able to automatically generate different footprint elements, provided that you have selected the footprint-type, and configured the parameters for each component.
Sprint-Layout also features a built-in search engine that can help you find the elements on your layout. The search process can be carried out by shape, size, or layers.
It is possible to export the generated board designs to BMP, JPG, GIF, EMF, and it also supports Gerber, Excellon, and HPGL formats.
Overall, Sprint-Layout proves to be a reliable tool for helping you design and edit your printed circuit board layouts.
