Any Circuit Design Comapanies using EAGLE?
« on: July 14, 2012, 10:47:47 am »
I'm after a electronic design company that uses EAGLE to assist me with some low-quantity, simple design work.

So far all of the local design companies I have contacted don't use EAGLE.

Does anyone here know or work for such a company?

I had to use it once to fix up a customers design, but there'd have to be a serious reason for me to do that again.
It really isn't suitable for "professional" design houses. Of the dozens of R+D companies I've dealt with over many
years, I've never come across any that use it. Maybe your best bet is to check what uni's, colleges, schools?
There are many that use it on this forum, so hopefully you'll get a better response. Good hunting.

Thanks for taking the time to reply digsys.

I've posted on the EAGLE forum now too - hopefully someone there sees it :).

Good news. The things with forums, or any "public" place, is LUCK. Sometimes, you'll put up a post and receive dozens+
replies, or it gets hijacked :-) and then you'll put up the same post again 2-3 times and get nothing. It's pure luck.
The probability that enough "suitable" people just happen to be on-line at that time. Few people will scroll back days
to see what's been posted, and there's nothing bad about that, so it gets lost. Motto: if you don't succeed try again

low-quantity, simple design work.
So why are looking for a "company" rather than an individual ("consultant")?
I'm inclined to agree than a "company" implies a level of capability and expertise that is beyond what EAGLE provides...

westfw,

You have a good point. Perhaps I should have worded my question differently.

In any case, I had success on the EAGLE forum.
