    Hi All,
    Linear Technology Corp is an IC design and manufacturing firm that has an absolutely free Spice simulator with a free schematic capture tool. There are no limitations on the number of nodes nor any time limits. They improve it with free upgrades all the time and they have all of their IC's modelled and ready to use in their LTSPICE. This is by far the best SPICE simulator and set of acompanying tools that I've ever used. Better than PSPICE. There is an active user group on Yahoo, they have a great user guide, tutorial, and other helpful documentation. And the people in the users group are always willing to help. Why pay for a 2nd rate set of tools, even for a schematic capture tool when you can have a better one for free with a free circuit simulator and post processing graphics tool to see the output any way you want, including the ability to do arithmetic on any node voltage or branch current, FFT's, and more. Do a google search on LTSPICE or go to the Linear Technology corp homepage and type LTSPICE in the search bar. Also, don't forget to go to the Yahoo site and search for the free LTSPICE user's group. I've used many Spice simulators, most were very expensive and the LTSPICE is the best of them all.

    Clearly your use of a code cracker to violate CadSoft's license is software piracy and illegal. I fully support CadSoft's response. It could be a lot worse, it you were in a country that respected copyright.

    If you must use Eagle, then I suggest contacting CadSoft and trying to negotiate a payment to unlock your work. Although, the company may rightfully refuse to help you.

    It is clearly against the policy of this site (AAC) to facilitate or advise you on continuing the illegal activity or on how to get around the block.

    If your project can't be finished legally in the time limit, why did you let it get to that point? Too lazy to work or plan ahead is not a good excuse for robbery.

    You also had a legal alternative, which was to buy a version with the features you needed. Were you using the educational/non-commercial version and found it deficient? If so, what features of that version were deficient?

    At this point, perhaps you should accept an incomplete, reduction in grade, and continue on legal.
