Hey guys. I've the convenience of my last job with it's fully registered version of OrCAD 9.2

It's time I get my hands on some good software. I'd like something that can do it all (capture, simulation, and layout), but I'd settle for just a good simulation package now.

Circuitmaker seems like the most affordable choice at 1000$


Any suggestions? I've always just used company and school software, which were pretty expensive packages.

I know that Protel is a fully integrated CAD software, you can do nearly everything with it. But it may be a bit "heavy" for beginners, and it isn't free at all.

I'm currently "playing" with the latest Multisim 8 which is quiet good to me, more especially this kind of funny things:

(that really works !! )

I just started using the free OrCAD demo version. It's been good enough for me, but since you're used to the full version, it may be too limited.

And looks like easyest one to figure, fast enough, but not detailed like Microsim :thumb:
