    I am looking for a cheap circuit diagram drawing program.
    so that I can store diagrams on my computer.

    Does anyone know of a Free / Shareware program that will
    enable me to draw simple circuit diagrams with resister, capacitor.
    and transistor symbols etc. ?

    Thank you Mike S.

    See my notes and links to some 60 ECAD programs at

    And/or read the past few weeks posts in these groups, as the question
    is asked several times a week.

    you could download free ltspice from which has a library of parts
    in a nice schematic editor and will even simulate your circuit to boot!
  4. My gonzo utilities do ultra high quality schematics, but require
    considerable learning and are not quite WYSIWIG.

    Numerous examples in most of our .psp files, especially those in the
    Tech Musings library.

    Many thanks,

    Free/Shareware program to draw simple circuit diagrams
    As Terry has said, this is one of the most commonly asked questions.
    We advise a visit to his page 1st.

    The selection of the most applicable newsgroup is also a good step:

    Learning the effective use of google (which archives many groups)
    is also a good step. You will get advocacy and critique here.

    For quick & easy I'd certainly recommend CircuitMaker Student (freeware)

    Not the largest parts library in the world, but most common parts are
    covered, and labels can be easily edited or moved about.

    I find the programs that can also produce a pcb design (such as Eagle) far
    slower to use, as instead of just picking a capacitor or resistor you have
    to select a particular maker's part & part number (to get the pcb hole pitch
    correct) :(
