Schematics Lite


Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


McCAD Schematics Lite (Scholastic Edition) is a sophisticated engineering database management system that allows the electronic designer to easily create and revise electronic circuit designs (digital or analog). It can access thousands of standard or custom on-line libraries in seconds, retrieving the necessary information to support the current design task at hand. It is principally a live system that constructs the databases as the design is created.

This process differs from many other CAE systems that require the user to first create the complete schematic and then use post-processing utilities to describe the circuit. As a result, McCAD Schematics Lite makes editing easy and provides absolute data extraction.

The user has at his disposal a large work surface that allows the creation of designs up to engineering "A" size. A sophisticated auto-interconnect routing engine facilitates rapid schematic interconnects. McCAD Schematics Lite generates a variety of output formats which also includes a standard SPICE list output which can be used with our McCAD 3-SPICE mixed mode simulation package (available separately). McCAD Schematics Lite fully integrates with our McCAD PCB-ST layout modules (available separately).

Whether your designs are analog or digital, if your looking for a quality design application that provides flexibility and productivity with ease of use and high-powered, interactive automation, McCAD Schematics series is the answer.

This FREE download version is fully functional for small projects. Schematics Lite project limits are controlled by the memory allocations available to the editing buffers. For the Schematics Lite series this means up to about 150 pins depending upon the design complexity. Larger design capacity is also available through the SE500 series available separately on the Apple Store.
