Sprint-Layout can help you to design your PCB's quick and easy. There is no unnecessary "ballast" which makes it difficult to keep the overview or which makes the usage almost impossible. Because of the logical and understandable structure of Sprint-Layout the usage is very easy to learn. So finally, you can concentrate to the essential thing: Designing and optimizing your PCB-layouts.
Sprint-Layout offers all needed functions to design your own layouts. Of course, there is an extensive library with all common components included.
For manufacturing your PCB's by hand, there is an excellent printout-procedure with many options available. If you want to produce professional boards, there are many PCB-manufacturer, which accept Sprint-Layout files. If required, you can export your layout to the GERBER and EXCELLON format. Sprint-Layout is also able to create HPGL files for isolation-milling.
Sprint-Layout offers 2 additional (inner) layer to create multilayer PCB's.
A new layer is available especially for the outline of your board.
3. Free rotating
You can rotate all elements and macros in a free angle.
Sprint-Layout is now using the mousewheel best possible to zoom and navigate your layout. You won't use the "zoom-mode" or the scrollbars anymore.
The new properties-panel makes the properties of any element available. You don't have to call special dialogs to edit these properties. Besides there are new properties editable, e.g. a numeric input of positions etc.
The DRC (Design-Rule-Check) is able to inspect your layout. You can check it for minimum distances, double or overlapped drillings, min/max limitations, etc.
The footprint-wizard helps you to create special footprints for components. You can specify the footprint with special parameters and the wizard creates your footprint automatically.
8. Editable solder masks
The solder mask is now editable. You can exclude pads or include tracks to your solder mask.
Sprint-Layout is able to create special SMD (paste) masks for manufacturing.
10. Base unit in "mm" or "mil"
You can set the base unit in Sprint-Layout to mm or mil (1 mil = 1/1000 inch).
You can reach the different modes in Sprint-Layout now with free defined hotkeys. This saves time for experienced users.
Sprint-Layout is now able to create simple spirals. These spirals are mostly used on hf boards.
13. Vitual nodes
These nodes are located in the middle of each track. Just drag them to a new position to create new nodes. This simplifies the editing of tracks.
Sprint-Layout is now able to create thermal pads on the ground-plane.
The calculating of the isolation-milling data is now much faster.
The test-function considers the ground-plane now much better, even if the ground-plane is splitted into different potentials.
