Hi - I'm looking through these schematics: http://ww1.microchip.com/downloa... (they start on page 51)

and I noticed that they do not appear to have been made with any software that I have used before (Altium designer, OrCAD, Eagle).

Anybody know what designed them?

Mentor Graphics?

Somehow, I'd expect Leon to know...

I haven't a clue what they use, it could be anything. It's impossible to tell with large companies as they create their own libraries for all the parts they use.

Not true at all. Though they may create their own library, things like off page connectors, GND symbols, etc are typically defined by the capture program. So you can tell by looking at those. The strange off page connectors on this schematic are what stood out to me.

All those are user-definable with the Pulsonix software I use, although the default symbols might be recognisable. I could make a Pulsonix schematic look as though it was created by any other package with a bit of work, or give it a distinctive appearance unlike any other package. Some other packages are probably similar.

Sure, if somebody really wants to work at it they can be tricky. But I doubt that is the case here.

PSpice looks like that. We used it a fair bit at uni.
