Bristol, UK, and Munich, Germany, September 20, 2022 – eCADSTAR, Zuken’s internet-connected PCB design product for small and medium businesses, is now available in a flexible subscription licensing model (TBL) that can be conveniently purchased in Zuken’s new European Online Store.

“We are seeing a growing trend towards time-based licensing in the market for professional engineering software and we are committed to evolving with the market”, commented Francesco De Cet, Head of European Business and Operations for Zuken. “As we go forward, we will add further products and services to our Online Store to provide customers easy access to our leading-edge technology.”


Jeroen Leinders, eCADSTAR Business Manager added: “With our online store and the eCADSTAR 365 subscription licensing model we are adding an attractive alternative to the PCB design user community, who can now decide between permanent licensing to be purchased through our established eCADSTAR reseller network and flexible time-based licensing provided through the eCADSTAR 365 web shop”

With monthly subscription rates starting at €59 per month, eCADSTAR 365 is available in 3 incremental bundles that are targeted at specific user profiles: eCADSTAR Engineer for engineers focused on schematic design and simulation, eCADSTAR GO for both schematic and PCB designers, and eCADSTAR GO Advanced for advanced PCB design needs such as automatic routing, rules by area, creepage and clearance checks and signal integrity analysis.
