Are you getting curious? Here you can tải về the freedemoversion of Sprint-Layout 6.0.


Sprint-Layout is equipped with tools lớn draw pads, tracks, copper areas, labels & so on. Just select the corresponding mode & place your elements. All parameter lượt thích track-width, pad-kích thước, etc. are always visible at a glance, and can be edited every time. The active sầu grid-capture lets you easily place your elements exactly.

You can edit existing layout-elements very easy. For example if you adjust the width of a traông xã, you will see the result immediately on your layout. Additional functions like copy, move sầu, rotate, mirror, etc. are self evident.


The component-library is already filled with many comtháng used components, either in SMD or in conventional through-hole-giải pháp công nghệ. The library is displayed in a well sorted treeview, so you don’t have sầu khổng lồ spkết thúc much time for searching a component.

If a special component is missing, you can easily draw it by yourself just on your layout. After that you can add this component to the library. So this new component is always available.

To use a component from the library, just drag&drop it lớn your layout. After that you can move, rotate or label the component like you want.



The unique of the screen presentation iis strongly improved with the anti-aliasing-công nghệ.

Edges are smoothed & the layout is looking much more realistic, even in small zoom modes.


Reticule with automatic-capture mode

The automatic-capture mode makes it easier lớn place pads or tracks. Whenever the reticule gets cthua kém lớn a capture-point, it will be captured khổng lồ this point, & helps you to connect exactly. This is particularly very helpful, if some connections are lying out of the grid.

The reticule also has a numeric display of the current coordinates. So you don’t have to lớn wander with your eyes to another position và you have always the view on your layout.


Components and component-lists

Sprint-Layout can display and manage the components including identifier và value. Of course there is also the possibility to show the component menu.

Eabít component can manage some additional data, so called “Pick+Place” data. With these additional data, Sprint-Layout can export Pick+Place files, which are necessary for the automated placement of SMD components on a board.


Free rotating

You can rotate all components or elements in any angle. This makes it possible to lớn place your components in the best manner.


Automatic Ground-Plane

This function fills unused areas of a layout with copper automatically. This accelerates the corroding process và saves corroding material. You may also use this function to lớn create a screen for HF-boards.

You can also define thermal-pads on the automatic ground-plane.


The Photoview

The photoview lets you take a look at your board as if it was already manufactured, with drillings, silk screen, etc. This helps you lớn find typically mistakes like wrong mirrored components or text.

You can select which board-side vị you want to view và display or hide the silk-screen. With the “x-ray” feature you can make the board transparent, so that you can see the other board-side shine through.



This function is very helpful to kiểm tra your layout. You can click on any position of your layout, and Sprint-Layout will find all connected layout-elements, & light them up. This makes it very easy khổng lồ check the signal flow of the layout.


Connections (Rubberbands)

With the help of the connections, you can simplify the routing process. Straight rubberbvà lines are used to lớn indicate connections that have sầu not yet been routed. This may help you not lớn forget any tracks. The rubberbvà lines are also helpful lớn find a suitable position for components. You may use them to avoid crossing tracks when placing the components on the board.


The Autorouter

There is simple point-to-point autorouter integrated in Sprint-Layout. This autorouter is able to connect two points of your layout. These two points are defined with a connection (rubberband). The autorouter was not designed, lớn generate whole boards at once. This is usually not possible. To create a proper layout, you have sầu to lớn thiết kế it mostly by yourself.

The autorouter in Sprint-Layout is designed as an easy to lớn use autorouter. You don"t have sầu lớn make obscure specifications and options. The autorouter is as simple as the whole software.


High resolution & accuracy

The resolution và the accuracy of Sprint-Layout was increased substantially. This concerns also the grid settings & the maximum zoom factor. It is now possible khổng lồ define a grid-value up to 1µm. So it is no problem khổng lồ design even very fine layout structures.

Also the selection of a special grid-value with the grid-menu is very easy. Just select the desired value from the popup-menu, which is filled with all default grid-values, either in inch or metric values. Of course you can easily extend this grid-thực đơn with your own-defined grid-values.

You can change the current grid also with the numeric keys 1-9 on your keyboard. Thes keys are working as hotkeys with predefined grid-values.


Layer administration

Sprint Layout offers - for both sides of the board - a copper- và a silk-screen-layer. Optional there are 2 inner layers (for multilayer PCB’s) và an outline layer (for the outline of your board) available. The layers can be switched on and off whenever necessary.


Several boards

A Sprint-Layout tệp tin can contains several boards. So you can add all boards of a project to lớn one tệp tin. With a single cliông xã you get access khổng lồ any board of your project.


The Footprint-Wizard

The footprint-wizard helps you lớn create special footprints for components. You can specify the footprint-type and the parameters and the wizard creates your footprint automatically.

Every footprint-type has different parameters. These parameters are displayed and explained in a little picture in the footprint-wizard.

All changes that you made will be displayed in the pReview immediately. If you have sầu set all parameters, the footprint-wizard creates the footprint và you can place it on your layout.



The properties-panel offers the possibility lớn edit all important properties of your layout-elements without calling special dialogs. Besides you can edit here special properties like positions, etc.

The properties-panel responds on the current selection on your layout. Just select the desired element & edit its properties directly in this panel. All changes that you make in this panel will be displayed on your layout immediately, so you can always see the result of your changes.

With the help of themulti-selectionpossibilty, you can even change properties of as many elements as you like at one go.


The Selector

The Selector is a mighty tool. You can use it to tìm kiếm and select special elements on your layout. So it is possible to lớn tìm kiếm and select all pads with a special shape or kích cỡ. If the desired elements are selected, they can be changed in comtháng with the properties-panel.

The Selector can also help khổng lồ analyze your layout. So you can danh mục e.g. all tracks sorted by their widths. Such lists can help you khổng lồ find unwanted elements.


Design-Rule-Check (DRC)

Because of little inaccuracies while a PCB will be produced, there are some tolerances và limitations lớn keep, to get a usable Board. These values are named "Design Rules". Sprint-Layout is able to kiểm tra some important thiết kế rules, e.g. the minimum clearance distance between 2 copper tracks, etc.

After a DRC is finished, all detected problems are listed in clear text and the problem-areas will be marked with a Trắng hatch. Now you can examine the problems one after the other & correct them.


Scanned copies

You can load a bitmaps in the background of your layout. This bitbản đồ can be a scanned-copy from an existing layout. You can use this bitmap as an original to lớn trace the layout. The bitmaps must be available as a bitbản đồ file (BMP.. or JPG). The resolution should be between 300-600 dpi. A pure B/W color depth is recommended, but not absolutely necessary.



Various options are available khổng lồ print your layouts, solder masks, component-mounting-plans, silk-screens or drilling-plans on paper sheets or transparent film.

The printout position is adjustable và the tile-option allows you khổng lồ repeat the printout of small designs in x- và y-direction, khổng lồ save sầu film và material.

The printout can be scaled.

All changes you make will be displayed in the pReview immediately.


Gerber / Excellon export

Sprint Layout produces GERBER files (RS-274X) that are used khổng lồ exchange layout data with PCB manufacturers. Gerber files are supported by (almost) all manufacturers. So you don’t need films or something else to lớn produce your boards.

The drillings can be exported in the comtháng EXCELLON format. With this feature you can drill your board automatically.

There are many PCB-manufacturer, which accept Sprint-Layout files (*.LAY) in a direct way, so you don’t have khổng lồ create Gerber or Excellon files by yourself.


Sprint-Layout supports also the isolation-milling. In this case, the PCB will be produced using a CNC-milling machine. Sprint-layout is able to calculate all necessary isolation-channels. The output tệp tin will be exported in the HPGL format. You can use these files lớn load them inkhổng lồ your milling-application & produce the board.

Additional functions lượt thích drilling-outputs, mirroring or the option khổng lồ define texts as singleline or outline, give you numerous possibilities.


The Sprint-Layout-Viewer With this Viewer it is possible for any user to lớn view và to print Sprint-Layout files. The Viewer is a không tính phí software. You can tải về the Viewer directly from this homepage
