I have been trying to get into PCB design lately. To design pcb or schematic, you need to know pcb design tools. There are few which can be used for this purpose.

  1. kicad
  2. eagle cad
  3. Fritzing


I chose Fritzing since I am a beginner in pcb design. I think Fritzing is pretty easy to learn for a beginner. Learning kicad is in my todo though since its more powerful.

I made a very simple avr board schematic.
