"As an electronic design services bureau we needed a tool to design embedded systems for our wide range of clients," says James Morrison of Stratford Digital. "We needed something that was fully capable for all kinds of designs. But we also needed a tool that would not burden our clients with an extraordinary licensing cost. If our clients need to simply change a resistor value then it's a rude awakening if the license cost for the CAD tool is greater than the cost of the entire design in the first place. So we found EAGLE to be a great fit. And the simple interface is a bonus since many of our clients only use the tool periodically and the learning curve is much less than other, more complicated CAD tools."
Morrison continues, "We liked EAGLE so much that we jumped at the chance to become a distributor. And now we're excited to see the added value that the imminent release of EAGLE V6 will add for our clients."
