Screen Shot Create an electrical design from your PC or hand-held's web browser using eightolives' finger-friendly Schematic Mobile. This schematic entry tool lets you capture a design and output netlists for printed circuit layout tools or VHDL for analysis and simulation. Schematic Mobile communicates with a companion networked server to provide file services and processing support. The tool is compatible with gEDA tools, symbols and files. You can easily create schematics and block diagrams using the on-line eightolives' symbol libraries, vendor imported symbols or symbols you create using the tool's various symbol wizards. You can also use gEDA symbols that are indirectly accessed through a supporting server.

Your browser displays the user interface making it suitable for most browsers capable of HTML5 and javascript support. This includes Firefox, Chrome and Safari. See the overview Using eightolives' Schematic Mobile for screenshots, menus and more information on how to use the tool.

Limited memory and capabilities of hand-helds and web browsers are addressed by communicating with an external web server. The server can provide file storage services, symbol libraries and other processing. An eightolives Microserver with Schematic support can be used on your local network to provide these additional services.

You can also store and retrieve your files from your Google Drive account letting you access files wherever you go. Read the app note Using Schematic Mobile with Google Drive for more information.
