Fritzing [Mac, Windows, Linux]



Fritzing is an open-source initiative to support designers, artists, researchers and hobbyists to take the step from physical prototyping to actual product. Fritzing software has been created as a developing a tool to help users document their Processing and Arduino and other electronic-based prototypes.

Fritzing is essentially an Electronic Design Automation software with a low entry barrier, suited for the needs of designers and artists. It uses the metaphor of the breadboard, so that it is easy to transfer your hardware sketch to the software. From there it is possible to create PCB layouts for turning it into a robust PCB yourself or by help of a manufacturer.

Fritzing is also about of sharing and learning. There are ways in which you can contribute and share your projects and self-made parts.

Currently in Alpha, Fritzing is available for Mac, Windows and Linux platforms. Download and try the latest Fritzing.

Fritzing is being developed by researchers in the Interaction Design Lab at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, Germany. Learn more about the growing team. Some pictures from their flickr stream.



  • Interesting! I have been looking for this info for the last few hours. Keep us updated I would like to hear more!

    Another great circuit design software I use all the time is EasyEDA which can run on on windows , mac , linux or android platform, as long as there is one browser on the OS and connecting to network.
    It is a free, zero-install and integrates powerful schematic capture, mixed-mode circuit simulation, PCB layout and low cost PCB order service.
    It can import Schematics and PCB Files form Eagle, Altium Designer, Kicad, LTspice.
    It provides SVG source to preview Schematic, PCB Layout and Gerber file
    It provides rich spice models to make simulation .
    It provides simulation viewform viewer .
    It provides easy PCB order which saves your time to make sample PCB .
    Every project you create on EasyEDA can be private, shared, or public.private, shared, or public.
