CHICAGO, MAY 17, 2010

Affordable CAD software offers "simplicity with just enough sophistication"

Newark element14 a leading multi-channel, high-service electronics distributor in the Americas and part of the global Premier Farnell Group is offering a complimentary 30-minute webinar and 60 day free trial of EAGLE 5.9.0 software, a powerful, yet affordable schematic capture and printed circuit design tool, on May 19 at 12noon CST. Design engineers are invited to register at http://www.element-14.com/community/events/2584.

EAGLE has 3 main modules: schematic, layout and autorouter. The tool also comes with many advanced features including an unlimited "undo/redo" function and "follow me router", which allows the user to accept or overwrite what the router recommends.

"As higher end tools become more complicated with steeper learning curves, more and more engineers are investing time to pick up easy-to-use, yet powerful EDA packages like EAGLE," comments Vandana Lokeshwar, Technical Marketing Manager, Newark element14, who will conduct the webinar. "As one NASA engineer put it, EAGLE offers 'simplicity with just enough sophistication, and at a reasonable price'.

EAGLE has been developed and marketed for more than 20 years by CadSoft and has been the best selling software of its kind in Europe since the early nineties. In 2009 it was acquired by Premier Farnell, who has since introduced a new more powerful 60 day trial version. It was named the winner of the 2010 Product of the Year from Elektronik Magazine, the sixth time is has won that honor.

Technical support for EAGLE is available at element14 or at www.cadsoftusa.com
