Are there any programs that can turn an electronic schematic into a layout that you can use on a breadboard? This would be increadably useful since I wouldn't have to give myself extreme headackes and/or carefully look at the schematic as I build the circuit.

So does any one know any programs that can do this? Rolling Eyes

Well, it's not original because I did this search awhile ago and I'm not the first to ask it. Sadly, I failed to find a program that could do it Crying or Very sad

LOL Shocked Someone posted Stripboard Magic for free online, I knew that it was stopped in manufacting and that it could do these tasks, but I couldn't find a copy when I did my original search a few years ago. Appearantly some nice guy decided to post the program after I did my original search Very Happy

The link is here:

It souldn't be hard to change it to a breadboard since the layout is similar Twisted Evil

Nice find. I saw a program before that was able to convert a schematic into a diagram of physical components and wires. For example a transistor would look like a picture of a transistor with wires connected to the leads. Did you stumble on that program during your search? If so I would love to know where it is...

I have used ExpressPCB before, but I never found that it could make the layout for a protoboard or stipboard Rolling Eyes
