CadSoft Computer, a part of global electronics distributor Premier Farnell, has revealed a series of new interoperability features and improved design simulation and modelling aimed at enhancing its Eagle PCB software for professional board design.
The features of version 6.4 of the software focus on design simulation and modelling and additions include an LT-Spice connection, allowing engineers to import and simulate LT-Spice schematics into Eagle and vice versa. Drawings from P-CAD, Altium and Protel can also now be imported via the intermediate format Accel ASCII to enhance interoperability and flexibility.
Cadsoft says version 6.4 offers an improved user interface, control panel and display and search function making the software easier to use and increasing design productivity. V6.4 also provides extended support for Mac OSX 10.8.
