XL Designer PCB CAD Software Overview

XL Designer PCB CAD Software

Seetrax CAE Ltd established Ranger, one of the early printed circuit board (PCB) computer aided design (CAD) systems on the market in the 1980's, and is re-knowned for providing excellent value for money, flexible tools for integrated schematic capture and PCB design.

Seetrax CAE Ltd specialises in CAD software for the PCB designer, having developed the Ranger PCB CAD product for their own design bureau.

Seetrax Ranger and now XL Designer PCB CAD software, will be found in large, medium and small companies around the world.

Dedicated to the development, supply and support of high performance software solutions for the electronics industry, Seetrax has a product available to suit hobbyists through to dedicated PCB designers. Their products have always been geared to the fast throughput of designs, whether for original design or re-work. The software can handle single-sided, double-sided and complex multi-layer designs containing conventional, through hole plated parts or surface mounted technology parts.

XL Designer handles complex printed circuit board designs of unlimited size including support for blind/buried vias, cross-probing, 3D output files, split internal power planes, hierarchical schematic editor, etc. The user-interface is Windows based allowing drag/drop operations, multiple, active open windows, etc.

Cut-down versions of XL Designer, XL Designer Lite are available for the price conscious user who doesn't require features such as blind/buried via support, split internal planes, etc., but still requires the ability to design complex printed circuit boards with full support for surface mount technology.

Extensive libraries of schematic symbols and PCB footprints are provided as standard, as are outputs to DXF, gerber photoplotters (RS-274X) and CNC drilling/routing machines. The Seetrax auto-router comes as standard along with .dsn outputs for the Specctra and Electra auto-routers.

Upgrading Seetrax software is easy, all designs and libraries are always fully upwards comaptible so you never lose any work.
