Biased .. maybe.. but I have my resisters connected to the right power rail
.. so am biased correctly
But seriously.. I ran my own PCB company.. and did well out of it .. mainly
because there isn't any decent tools to cover my own handy work .. I've also
hand routed zero wait state dual 200MHz processors with high speed video as
well .. all in a days work. :-)
and you might be disappointed by the results of the Bartell software.. not
saying it isn't any good.. but it is a cheap affordable package.. and
routers are expensive .. at least the good ones are.. and after the router
has finished .. comes the long hard tidy-up slog.. even then the results may
not be what you want..
I have actually beaten the auto-router to route complex boards before.. I
wouldn't recommend trying that.. but you can do it without too much sweat..
and you end up with a better route and fewer vias.
