EAGLE Product Information

The EAGLE Layout Editor is an easy-to-use, yet powerful, tool for designing printed circuit boards (PCBs). The program consists of three main modules

which are embedded in a single user interface. Therefore there is no need for converting netlists between schematics and layouts.
