Compare directories and files

A simple but powerful utility to compare the contents of files, directories and entire directory hierarchies. Useful when time and date stamps get changed by file compression, file copy and web site synchronisation programs. Works with both text and binary files. Examines the contents of files rather than checking file attributes. This program requires Microsoft .NET

A stunningly good PCB layout tool which is genuinely free. Support is excellent via the User Forum - the designer of the software frequently responds himself. Very highly recommended - we use it ourselves in preference to other professional tools. No auto router.

TinyCAD is a program to help you draw circuit diagrams. It comes complete with symbol libraries to get you started straight away. As well as being able to simply print your designs, you can use TinyCAD to publish your drawings by copying and pasting into a Word document, or saving as a PNG bitmap for the web.

You can use TinyCAD as a front end to a PCB layout program (see the links), by getting TinyCAD to create a netlist of your circuit.

GCPreview - a high quality Gerber and Drill file viewer. Comes in two versions. The free version is a viewer - you can't edit anything. GCPreviewPlus includes many comprehensive editing and other functions - although you still have to purchase an additional add-in if you want to perform DRC checks on your Gerber's. Highly recommended.

Pentalogix ViewMate - another high quality Gerber and Drill file viewer. Like GCPreview, it comes in two versions. The free version is called ViewMate and is just a viewer - you can't edit anything. ViewMasterEZ is a more capable version costing USD49 which includes Gerber editing and DRC checking as standard. Highly recommended.

GCPreview or ViewMate? GCPreview is a simpler product and easier to learn. Viewmate is much more capable and ViewMasterEZ offers remarkable value for money.

jZip file compression utility

A great totally free alternative to WinZip for both creating and extracting compressed files in Zip format as well as TAR, GZip, RAR and ISO. Unlike much so-called free software, there is no addware, spyware or other nasties - in fact there are no catches at all. Easier and more logical than WinZip.

Adobe Acrobat Reader

The de-facto standard in .PDF file readers. Somewhat bloated and heavyweight these days. See also the free reader from Foxit

Foxit .PDF File Reader

Stunningly fast and capable .PDF file reader. The free version does many things you have to pay for from Adobe Acrobat. The full versions are also a lot cheaper than the equivalent Adobe Acrobat. If you are constantly in a work frenzy and get irritated with waiting for applications to load, this is a 'must have'
