Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone knows of any freeware software programs for doing stripboard/perfboard layouts. For the time being, I've been sticking with breadboards (which work great), but I'm ready to make circuits that are more robust, compact, and permanent. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Jason O

Do you mean PCB layouts? Or some tool to help you document how you are going to hand-wire ICs and components that you are soldering onto 0.100" prototype boards with plated-through holes?

For PCB layouts, there are some PCB fab companies that offer free software to do simple layouts that they will fab in small numbers for you for a reasonable cost. For 0.100" perfboard layouts, I usually just do a floorplan by hand, and use the schematic for documenting the interconnects. Highlight each connection on the schematic as you make each connection, and you'll be okay staying organized.
