The EAGLE Layout Editor is an easy to use, yet powerful tool for designing printed circuit boards PCBs. The name EAGLE is an acronym, which stands for Easily Applicable Graphical Layout Editor.
The program consists of three main modules

This is a Light Freeware Edition. It has the following limitations
o The useable board area is limited to 100 x 80 mm 4 x 3.2 inches. o Only two signal layers can be used Top and Bottom. o The schematic editor can only create one sheet. o Support is only available via email or through our forum no fax or phone support. o Use is limited to non-profit applications or evaluation purposes.
Apart from these limitations the EAGLE Light Edition can do anything the Professional Edition can do. You can even load, view and print drawings that exceed these limits!
