Schematic Design Software

The ExpressSCH schematic design program available with ExpressPCB Plus or ExpressPCB Classic. Here’s how simple it is to draw a schematic with ExpressSCH:

Step 1


Select the Components – Begin your schematic by placing the components. Select the parts from the Component Manager  dialog box.ExpressSCH includes a large library with hundreds of component symbols (ICs, resistors, capacitors…) that you can use to draw your electronic circuits.





Step 2


Position the Components – Drag each component to the desired location on the page. The Snap to grid feature makes it easy to neatly align the symbols.

If all of the components do not fit on a single page, add additional sheets. All the sheets of a schematic are linked together and saved in one file.






Step 3


Add the Wires – Now draw the wires to connect the parts together. Add each wire by clicking on a component’s pin, then dragging the wire to the pin it connects to.





Step 4


Edit the Schematic – Making changes to a schematic is simple using standard commands such as Copy, Cut and Paste. Rearranging the components is easy by dragging them with the mouse. Wires always stay connected to their pins, even when you move things around.
