49 Free Software On Electronics!


Software is the base of all innovation nowadays. Before an engineer or scientist starts off with real world development, there is always a software used for simulation. Moreover, software are also used in order to help during the development process and optimise productivity. Here are 49 free or free and open source software that would be interesting for electronics engineers.
