I use Pulsonix, and it's excellent - very easy to use with a good
autorouter. However, it is a professional product with a price to match
($4,000). Have a look at Easy-PC, I used it for years, and a new version has
just been released with lots of new features. It's ideal for your purposes.
I find Eagle very difficult to use, although lots of people like it. It's
cheap, and capable of good results, with a lot of work.
