  • Mentor tries the low end, again, with PADS Maker
  • The article was worth it just for the introduction to KiCad - a real contender, although the schematic interface is just dreadful - too many mouse-miles, and dragging the design elements results in hopeless diagonal nets. Doomed to disappear :-( I really like the original circuitmaker6 schematic engine (cirmaker, for disambiguation) - this is available free of charge in its 50-node limited version, and it is ever so quick to use. Given it is more than ten years obsolete, it would be nice if it were open-sourced, allowing others to improve the functionality on the already excellent UI. FreeCAD is its natural partner, again really simple to use with keyboard shortcuts controlling most of what you need - avoiding the "pick -up tool, select sub option, pick up original tool... "

  • Is iPad scope worth professional pricetag?
  • The fact that it is tied to an Ipad tells it all - try getting the waveforms onto a USB stick?.. Given there are so many Android tablets, might be an easier and much cheaper choice. The facilities are pretty woeful as you point out in the article. I have to agree with your summary, it's a good idea, and given an extra year of development and some serious cost reduction, it would be a thing I might buy.
