Manufacturers & Services
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.
