Sprint-Layout you can design your PCB’s quick and easy. There is no
unnecessary “ballast” which makes it difficult to keep the overview or
which makes the usage almost impossible. Because of the logical and
understandable strucure of Sprint-Layout the usage is very easy to learn.
So finally, you can concentrate to the essential thing: Designing and
optimizing your PCB-layouts.

there are many PCB-manufacturer, which accept Sprint-Layout files. If
required, you can export your layout to the GERBER and EXCELLON format.
Sprint-Layout is also able to create HPGL files for

You can rotate all components or elements in any

The photoview lets you take a look at your board as
if it was already manufactured, with drillings, silk screen, etc.
This helps you to find typically mistakes like wrong mirrored
components or text.
You can select which board-side do you want
to view and display or hide the silk-screen. With the “x-ray”
feature you can make the board transparent, so that you can see the
other board-side shine through.
This function is very helpful to

connections, you can simplify the routing process. Straight
rubberband lines are used to indicate connections that have not yet
been routed. This may help you not to forget any tracks. The
rubberband lines are also helpful to find a suitable position for
components. You may use them to avoid crossing tracks when placing
the components on the board.
There is simple point-to-point autorouter
integrated in Sprint-Layout. This autorouter is able to connect two
points of your layout. These two points are defined with a
connection (rubberband). The autorouter was not designed, to
generate whole boards at once. This is usually not possible. To
create a proper layout, you have to design it mostly by
The autorouter in Sprint-Layout is designed as an easy
to use autorouter. You don't have to make obscure specifications and
options. The autorouter is as simple as the whole
Sprint Layout offers - for both sides of the
board - a copper- and a silk-screen-layer. Optional there are 2
inner layers (for multilayer PCB’s) and ab outline layer (for the
outline of your board) available. The layers can be switched on and
off whenever necessary.
A Sprint-Layout file can contains several boards. So
you can add all boards of a project to one file. With a single click
you get access to any board of your project.
The footprint-wizard helps you to create
special footprints for components. You can specify the
footprint-type and the parameters and the wizard creates your
Every footprint-type has different
parameters. These parameters are displayed and explained in a little
picture in the footprint-wizard.
All changes that you made will
be displayed in the preview immediately. If you have set all
parameters, the footprint-wizard creates the footprint and you can
place it on your layout.
The properties-panel offers the
possibility to edit all important properties of your layout-elements
without calling special dialogs. Besides you can edit here special
properties like positions, etc.
The properties-panel responds on
the current selection on your layout. If you select e.g. a single
pad, you can edit its properties directly here.
In the same
manner, you can edit all other elements like tracks, text labels,
Because of little
inaccuracies while a PCB will be produced, there are some tolerances
and limitations to keep, to get a usable Board. These values are
named "Design Rules". Sprint-Layout is able to check some important
design rules, e.g. the minimum clearance distance between 2 copper
After a DRC is finished, all detected problems are
listed in clear text and the problem-areas will be marked with a
white hatch. Now you can examine the problems one after the other
and correct them.
Scanned layouts (e.g. from magazines) may be used as a
copy for reproduction or for simple extensions. The layout must be
available as a bitmap file. The bitmap is displayed in the
background of the editor.
Various options are available to print
your layouts, solder masks, component-mounting-plans, silk-screens
