In the same style as Processing and Arduino, “Fritzing” is an open source PCB layout tool that attempts to help designers move from physical prototypes to building actual products. In particular in the area of PCB prototyping, the freely downloadable cross-platform software allows for basic layout and design of projects like Arduino shields and other projects and can also be used to document PCB designs for later publishing on the web, etc… Lots of very good introductory information at the link below.

Hi Jonah, thanks a lot for the recognition and the good summary!
We’re working intensively on Fritzing right now, and have just release a new version. We hope that it has even more appeal than the previous one, here’s a new screenshot.
We welcome everybody to give it a spin and let us know how useful it is and what they might be missing.
