RS Components added new features to DesignSpark PCB Pro and introduced an RS stock number to make it easier to purchase. The free-of-charge version of DesignSpark PCB, part of the award-winning RS DesignSpark range, offers a no-cost way for anyone to design their own printed circuit board. With many features only found in commercial software, it remains popular with individual users and smaller teams.
DesignSpark PCB Pro takes this to the next level by providing more advanced features that can really only be supported in professional PCB design software. The Pro version, which was introduced in 2019, offers organisations with larger engineering teams or more demanding requirements a low-cost, seamless migration path to advanced PCB design and manufacturing features.
New users can purchase a perpetual licence for DesignSpark PCB Pro directly through their RS Components account, using the dedicated stock number (220-5326). Existing Pro v9 customers can upgrade to v10 using the RS stock number 220-5327. This provides a simpler purchasing experience for registered users, as they no longer have to enter payment details or complete an additional financial transaction.
In step with the Pro version, DesignSpark PCB V10.0 features many additional capabilities, including:
• New ‘disconnect from signal nets’ option.
• Component-to-component SMT check.
• Output drill data to Gerber.
• Library item time stamps.
• Improvements to new component wizard.
The latest version of DesignSpark PCB Pro, V10.0, adds these plus a number of other features requested by existing customers. These include:
