The program allows for up to 16 copper layers, both metric and customary units, and export of designs in RS-274X Gerber format. Boards can be partially or fully autorouted with the FreeRouting[2] autorouter by using the FpcROUTE Specctra DSN design file translator.

FreePCB can run under Linux by using Wine and on Macintosh computers using Parallels Desktop for Mac, Virtual Box, or Wine via MacPorts.[3]
