Contents • • • • • • • • • Features [ ] EAGLE contains a, for designing. Schematics are stored in files with.SCH extension, parts are defined in device libraries with.LBR extension. Parts can be placed on many sheets and connected together through ports. The layout editor stores board files with the extension.BRD.
It allows to the schematic and auto-routing to automatically connect traces based on the connections defined in the schematic. EAGLE saves and layout files as well as and drill files. These are standard file formats accepted by companies, but given EAGLE's typical user base of small design firms and hobbyists, many PCB fabricators and also accept EAGLE board files (with extension.BRD) directly to export optimized production files and data themselves.

EAGLE provides a multi-window graphical user interface and menu system for editing, project management and to customize the interface and design parameters. The system can be controlled via mouse, keyboard hotkeys or by entering specific commands at an embedded. Multiple repeating commands can be combined into (with file extension.SCR). It is also possible to explore design files utilizing an EAGLE-specific object-oriented programming language (with extension.ULP). History [ ] The German CadSoft Computer GmbH was founded by Rudolf Hofer and Klaus-Peter Schmidinger in 1988 to develop EAGLE, a 16-bit PCB design application for. Originally, the software consisted of a layout editor with part libraries only.
An auto-router module became available as optional component later on. With EAGLE 2.0 a schematics editor was added in 1991. The software used video drivers, and XPLOT to print. In 1992, version 2.6 changed the definition of layers, but designs created under older versions (up to 2.05) could be converted into the new format using the provided UPDATE26.EXE utility. EAGLE 3.0 was changed to be a 32-bit application in 1994. Support for was added with version 3.5 in April 1996. This version also introduced multi-window support with forward-/backward-annotation, user-definable copper areas, and a built-in programming language with ULPs.
It was also the first to no longer require a. In 2000 EAGLE version 4.0 officially dropped support for DOS and OS/2, but now being based on it added native support for and was among the first professional electronic CAD tools available for. A 32-bit version of EAGLE 4.0 running under DOS was still available on special request in order to help support existing customers, but it was not released commercially. Much later in 2015, a special version of EAGLE 4.09r2 was made available by CadSoft to ease installation under. Starting with version 4.13, EAGLE became available for, with versions before 5.0.0 still requiring. Version 5.0.0 officially dropped support for and 3.x/4.x. This version was based on and introduced user-definable attributes.
