Discussion session on PCB development tools

Software developers have a much easier time sharing their developments than hardware designers. When you put a piece of code on the Web, you don't ask yourself if others will have the freedom and resources to access a text editor to look at it and modify it, or a compiler or interpreter to have the code do something useful. The landscape for hardware designs is more complicated. The dominant design and simulation tools are proprietary, and there is not even a de-facto proprietary standard format to share designs. The Electronic Design Automation (EDA) devroom looks at recent progress in Free tools for hardware design and simulation, and serves as a meeting place for discussion about future collaborations and developments. Come and see how some of these tools are actually catching up, and sometimes even more, in terms of features and quality.
