Use a real picture of a circuit board and trace out connections

josiahw 4 years, 5 months ago

What I'd like to do (with Fritzing, or a program I write myself):


Take a high resolution picture of a circuit board.

Select a connection (such as an IC pin) on the circuit board and then select all points connected to it.

After tracing out the entire circuit board, save this info for later.


I'd like to use this info as a diagnostic tool for similar circuit boards. I'd like to display one connection at a time. For example, I want to make sure an IC pin has continuity to where it needs to go. I'd imagine that this would speed up diagnosing problems with a board.


Can Fritzing do something like this? Is it possible to write a mod for it? Thank you!

Nope... I've not seen this feature..... You'll have to take a different approach.
