Any new or experienced PCB designer with a great idea for a new product will have plenty of challenges to overcome, and they need a number of tools to create a high quality design that is manufacturable. From schematic design tools to layout tools and component libraries, the best PCB design programs and platforms offer designers a large number of features for creating advanced PCBs.

Collaboration is another pain point that designers experience when working on complex products. Some design platforms make collaboration easier than others, and the price points and functionality in different programs can vary wildly. Thankfully, there is an easier way to collaborate with your design team and create high quality boards on a budget.

Why Should I Use a Circuit Builder Online?

Using a circuit builder online can help ease your collaboration pains and provide you with the tools you need to create boards that are actually manufacturable. The right online design tools will also give you access to a huge library of components and datasheets. Your team will be able to track changes to projects within a single interface, as well as prepare designs for full-scale production.

What Makes a Great Online Circuit Builder?

A great online circuit builder will include many of the same tools that are present in desktop PCB design applications. If you take a look at most online design tools, you will see that they offer limited functionality, forcing you to choose multiple tools just to create a new design. Desktop design programs have a chance of reading between data formats, but separated online tools do not have this capability.

The best online circuit design software will include the features you need to take a design all the way to production in a single program. You shouldn’t have to cobble together multiple online design programs just to finish an important project, and designers on your team should have full access to the design features required to build great PCBs. This improves productivity and eases collaboration across design teams.

  • Other online design platforms give you little to no control over your design rules, and most do not enforce any design rules at all. Upverter allows you to tailor your design rules and constraints to your specific application. This helps you meet your performance requirements. Learn more about working with constraints in Upverter.
  • Upverter’s browser-based design interface is built for collaboration. Your work is stored in a secure database and can be easily shared with your team members. Learn more about collaboration in Upverter.

Completing Your Designs with an Online Circuit Builder

There is no reason you should be forced to work with multiple design tools that enforce inconsistent workflows just to finish your design. If you’re considering using a circuit builder online, your browser-based design software should include all the tools you need to turn your idea into a finished layout and plan for production. Even more important, your online design tools should be accessible in a single interface with consistent workflow among design features.

Preparing for Manufacturing with a Circuit Builder Online

When you’re ready to plan for manufacturing, you’ll need tools in your design software that generate deliverables for your manufacturer directly from your design data. There is no reason you should have to manually copy design information into a word processor, browse distributor websites for components, and generate Gerber files in a separate program. With Upverter, you’ll have the tools you need to prepare a complete package of deliverables for your manufacturer.
