Zuken Launches CADSTAR Express

Zuken, the easy to use free web download of the desktop printed circuit board (PCB) design solution, CADSTAR.
This fully functional version of CADSTAR 8.0 features tools for design from schematics to manufacture, with a limit of 300 pins and 50 components. It provides an excellent means of evaluating the CADSTAR tool suite.

Improved functionality from CADSTAR 8.0 that CADSTAR Express users can now benefit from includes developments in schematic design and library management, lead free component technology and jumpers.

CADSTAR Express users can also view samples of the 140,000 component on-line component library, CADSTAR Exchange. This web-based source currently contains components from 17 manufacturers including Intel, National Semiconductors, Philips, ST Microelectronics and Xilinx and is part of the maintenance agreement.

To further assist in the evaluation of CADSTAR tools, CADSTAR Express includes a Do-It-Yourself manual in PDF, with tutorials and video files to illustrate key features.

This tool is also available for budding designers and hobbyists, enabling them to try out the latest desktop PCB design software functionality available from Zuken.
