capture, layout, block diagram software listed here is used not for simulating circuit and/or system performance,
but for documentation and publication. The software can take the form of specialized packages for documenting electrical
and mechanical assemblies, to simple graphics drawing software. All modern word processing programs even have pretty
good drawing features. Generally, price correlates directly to the capability of the software.
