  1. Gudday all,

    I am a new ( well sort of ) electronics enthusiast and I would like to start
    getting into the design and building of my own circuits. I would like to
    fisrt construct them on my computer and test them there as well.

    Is there any software, specifically freeware, out there wich can run under
    Windows 2000?

    Thanks to everybody who choses to reply.

    Hi TDW,
    if you are looking at circuit design and simulation then I would recommend
    the student or freeware edition of Pspice. You can download the demo or
    student version from
    http://www.cadencepcb.com/products/downloads/PSpicestudent/default.asp OR
    www.orcadpcb.com

    it has node limitiations but useful nonetheless.

    It also has pcb design built in however I'd recommend the protel freeware
    for that. Their autotrax product is still available for download. from
    http://www.protel.com/resources/downloads/index.html

    Everyone will recommend their favourite tools no doubt.

    If there is a freeware product which has easy schematic capture which can be
    used for both simulation and pcb layout that would be the one to go for.

    Cheers
    Greg
