Review

Fritzing is a free and open source electronic automation designer software download filed under miscellaneous software and made available by University of Applied Sciences Potsdam for Windows.

The review for Fritzing has not been completed yet, but it was tested by an editor here on a PC and a list of features has been compiled; see below.


A tool for streamlining projects and prototyping for designers

Fritzing is an open-source initiative to support designers, artists, researchers and hobbyists to take the step from physical prototyping to actual product. We are creating this software in the spirit of Processing and Arduino, developing a tool that allows users to document their Arduino and other electronic-based prototypes, and to create a PCB layout for manufacturing. The complementing website helps users to share and discuss drafts and experiences as well as to reduce manufacturing costs.

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.

Physical prototyping tools have come a long way and already allow non-engineers to quickly turn their ideas into functional interactive prototypes.

Features and highlights

  • User-friendly interface for a quick and easy workflow
  • Breadboard View: Easily build your virtual circuit exactly the way your real circuit looks like, avoiding mistakes that might occur transitioning from physical breadboard to circuit schematic
  • Schematic View: Shows the circuit you built in breadboard view as a circuit diagram, and is handy for those of you who are used to or wish to learn about standard circuit symbols
  • PCB View: Lets you design and export the necessary documents for producing a Printed Circuit Board. The PCB view features an Autoroute function, which is a great time saver
  • Palette Windows: provide parts, tools and information
  • The Part Creator: a tool to modify parts or create new parts for Fritzing
