Advanced Circuits, the third largest PCB manufacturer in the United States, created PCB Artist to provide a free design solution that makes the process faster and helps customers find potential mistakes before moving onto prototyping or production.
Designing a brand new PCB for your next project is exciting, but can be challenging if you do not have the right tools, which is why Advanced Circuits wants to make it easy with their high tech free PCB design layout software, PCB Artist. PCB Artist is very well rated and will not cost users a thing.
How Quality Design Software Helps the PCB Production Process
Using quality, professional-grade software like PCB Artist helps designers turn their new idea into a tangible product. The FREE PCB Design Software has helped facilitate a faster and simpler process for all design engineers creating their PCB Designs. PCB Artist includes a Multi-Page Schematics, a configurable Auto Router, and other great features found in other expensive PCB Design software options on the market.
The free library for PCB Artist has more than half a million parts and allows users to create PCB Designs up to 28 layers. It also includes a powerful Part Creation Wizard, as well as design rule checks and reports. This helps spot errors, ensuring customers will not waste their time and money with designs that ultimately will not work.
Users Enjoy an Intuitive Design Interface
A stand out feature of PCB Artist from Advanced Circuits is how intuitive and easy-to-use it is for customers. It can be used by those with experience in designing printed circuit boards, as well as someone who is still learning. The interface is easy to understand and it includes a user’s guide that is available for download with a variety of tips, tools, and video tutorials.

This week we have quite a variety of articles for you. There has been so much electronics industry news coming out of Washington, D.C., that it can be hard to keep track of what’s going on. So, Editor Michelle Te compiled a handy-dandy reference guide to recent legislation news, including our exclusive coverage. We need to keep an eye on these senators and representatives. They’ve been talking about the importance of our industry for the past year, but this is an election year, after all. They’ve been known to say one thing and do another.

Can it be Friday already? Seems like I’ve just barely put away my Tuesday dishes. Some weeks, I wonder where my days went as they fly by so fast I hardly even realize it. As I looked back through the news for the week, it was clear why everything went so fast: There was a lot going on. The news this week had a nice feel to it. It seems like the industry is starting to gain some traction again with shows, mergers and acquisitions, and companies getting to do those “extras” that they wanted to do before the pandemic reared its ugly head. It had a little of that “back to normal” feel, even if we aren’t quite there yet. What do you think? Are we normal yet?

I’m getting a lot of out-of-office replies. Are you all on the beach now? It’s 91 degrees every day here in Atlanta lately, but each afternoon it rains like we’re in a horror movie, and that drops the temperature down to the subtropical arena. Still, I’ll take heat over freezing any day. Things are heating up in our industry too, as we see from my top five choices this week. First-quarter electronic design revenue is up year-on-year, but PCB revenue barely moved the needle YOY. Editor Nolan Johnson spent the week at SEMICON West and the FLEX Conference, and he brings us a review of these conferences, co-located at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. As he notes, printed electronic circuits are beginning to gain a foothold in the market.
