ELECTRA is a new generation of shape-based and automated routing software for PC boards, developed by KONEKT from Belgium. It can provide high completion rates for automated routing on the most densely populated multi-layer PCB designs. Compared with traditional grid-maze autorouters, the shape-based approach makes more efficient use of routing areas, and is better suited to deal with the complex design rules and requirements of high density SMD or through hole boards, thus achieving the highest routing completion rate.

KiCad – Cross-platform and open-source EDA suite

In the process of learning PCB design technology, many people may want to know what EDA design software is the most appropriate one? If it was several years ago, I would not hesitate to recommend Altium Designer to everyone. Because it was very popular, came with all kinds of supporting resources, and if you had any problem, you could always find someone familiar with this tool to ask for help. But today, KiCad has become a better choice.
