pcb-rnd is a modular[7] and compact (core under 60k SLOC, plugins at 100k SLOC)[7] software application used for layout design of electrical circuits.[8] Pcb-rnd is used professionally as well as in universities.[9] Pre-built packages are available on multiple operating systems.[10][11][12][13] The software focuses on multiple file format support,[14][15] scripting, multiple font support,[16] a query language and command line support for batch processing and automation.[17] The software provides user interfaces for command line, gtk2+gdk, gtk2+gl, and motif [18] supporting multiple GUIs with the same thing for every interface.[19]

History[edit]

pcb-rnd was originally developed from a friendly fork of the geda PCB project. In 2020 pcb-rnd was funded through NGI0 PET as a part of the European Commission's Next Generation Internet program.[8]
