There are many programs for making Schematic designs and PCB layouts. They all have something different and many people have compared them in the past and are still comparing them. We have worked in the past with the best programs for designing PCB's and schematics and surprisingly KiCad is (by our opinion) the closest thing to a professional software. There are many reasons on why we think so but when it comes to fast prototyping and error management as well as Layered design then even among Commercially affordable software there are very few that do the job as we would like them to. Also KiCad is free and Open Source, that makes us like it even more.
