Import Eagle Designs into PADS Today!

Eagle™ design tools have been popular for simple designs and in the Maker community for years. This has created a huge eco-system of reference designs and other boards.

If you are an Eagle user who is looking for more power in your design tools, or a current PADS customer who wants to take advantage of an existing Eagle reference design, an Eagle-to-PADS translator is now available with PADS VX.2.4. Simply “import” the Eagle design and the libraries, schematics, and layout will all be translated into PADS!
