    I would like to introduce you a very simple software to produce pcboards, schematics

    and also simulations.

    They are two small programs that works in a complementary way...the first one is the livewire where you trace your schematic and can simulate it too.

    The second one is the PCBoard Wizzard, this one is able to produce printed circuit boards using autoroute..and this is the most interesting feature... it is not high quality, not perfect, but takes a few seconds to produce boards and these files can be exported as Gerbers that allow you to order boards from manufacturers.

    Videos will introduce it to you... download it and test...it is not so good as Eagle and some others, BUT, it is less demanding, easy to learn and fast to use if you are not a professional..if you a DIY, an amateur, then it will be good for you the same way it is good for me.

    Watch this video folks.

    Here you have a much better presentation made by my friend Cool Dude Clem

    regards,

    I'm impressed with your Presentation of Livewire and PCB Wizard. I'm starting to download those software. Thanks for the info Destroyer X and Cool Dude Clem. I'm glad to be diysmps member. I learned a lot on this website.

    Is there any way to simulate class D mono amplifiers in this Livewire ?
    For example I consider a Car Amplifer class D mono.
    Input 12-16 v DC .
    Output in watts
    700RMS @ 4 Ohms Speaker load
    1200RMS @ 2 Ohms
    1600RMS @ 1 Ohm,
    I want to simulate the effects of different input voltages on the amplifiers output.Also the amperage consumption simulation on different ohm load/voltage.
    pls suggest some other software if its not possible with livewire.
