McCAD Schematics SE500 (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 an on -line 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 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 "C" size. A sophisticated auto-interconnect routing engine facilitates rapid schematic interconnects. McCAD Schematics SE500 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 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 SE500 is the answer.
SE500 project limits are controlled by the memory allocations available to the editing buffers. For the SE 500 series this means up to about 450 pins depending upon the design complexity.
Information and documents are included for those who wish to construct the Apple I Replica computer.
Ratings and Reviews
What a scam.
Tried the “Lite” version that stated there was a memory size lock in the “Lite” version. Upgraded, and there is still a memory lock. It can’t find its own Libraries in it own directory. What a heap of garbage. We had to suffers years until Mac had AutoCAD. How much longer wil be have to wait for a usable schematic system that can export and plot full sized designs?
Poorly designed solution
Was hoping for a lot more for $24. This app drops you into a non-intuitive UI with zero instructions. Its basically an attempt to reverse engineer what you need to do through trial and error. Wast of money.
Confusing. I should know better for only $24.99.
Why do I keep hoping a decent schematic drawing program will come to the Mac?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
