New product segmentation also introduced to simplify range
CHICAGO, Sept. 2, 2015 -- CadSoft Computer, part of the Premier Farnell Group, has extended its software portfolio with the new ‘EAGLE Make’ line launched today, along with its new product segmentation for the whole EAGLE range.
The ‘EAGLE Make’ product line was created to respond to the requirements of the emerging Maker segment by providing two different license types: ‘EAGLE Make Personal’ (previously EAGLE Hobbyist), and the brand new ‘EAGLE Make Pro’. The two license types mainly differ in terms of usability (non-commercial vs. commercial) and board size flexibility.
“It is our belief that there is an increasing demand for a product which supports engineers getting started with PCB design at a professional or personal level,” said Robin Colman, general manager at CadSoft. “EAGLE Make Pro is a design package that provides full functionality for commercial use at great value. The annual licensing for EAGLE Make Pro provides lower barrier to entry for those starting out in the commercial space, while also providing a neat upgrade path to one of the more professional licenses if the customer need is there.”
The ‘EAGLE Make’ product line forms part of the new product segmentation CadSoft has introduced, which includes ‘EAGLE Business,’ clearly targeted to commercial customers and larger companies, as well as ‘EAGLE Learn,’ which focuses on the educational segment.
“As the EAGLE portfolio expands it is important we make it easy for our customers to identify the right EAGLE product to suit their needs,” said Colman. “We want to make it easier for people to understand at first sight what EAGLE is about and the options and different editions available. Our new product lines, EAGLE Business, EAGLE Make and EAGLE Learn do this perfectly.”
