.SCH File Extension
File Type 1SuperCard Help Project File
What is an SCH file?
Project file created by SuperCard, a visual authoring tool for Mac OS X; stores data for a help project, which contains indexable help content; used for extending the SuperCard Help System.
File Type 2EAGLE Schematics File
.SCH File Association 2
An SCH file contains a schematic, or visual diagram, of a PCB (printed circuit board), created with EAGLE PCB design software. It stores symbols (for logic gates) connected by lines, which represent buses. SCH files are used for creating actual circuit board (.BRD) files.
NOTE: Autodesk EAGLE was formerly known as CadSoft EAGLE. The software was acquired by Autodesk in 2016. EAGLE stands for "Easily Applicable Graphical Layout Editor."
File Type 3gEDA Schematic File
.SCH File Association 3
Schematic file created and used by gEDA, a collection of tools used to design PCB layouts and electronic schematics; contains data that makes up the schematic; includes the gEDA/gaf format version, pictures, and XY coordinates for nets, buses, and components.
Electronic schematics consist of a collection of symbols, or components, nets, and buses. They are used during the schematics capture process in circuit design and once it has been created, it can then be passed to the printed circuit board design process.
File Type 4Strater Scheme File
.SCH File Association 4
File used by Strater, a program used for visualizing subsurface borehole and well log data; specifies the nomenclature (keywords, data range, lithology, etc.) and the display properties (line, text, symbol, fill, etc.) for design elements that use the nomenclature; enables designs to be created according to standards.
Strater schemes can be created and edited in the Scheme Editor, which is accessed by selectingfrom the application menu.
File Type 5KiCad Schematic File
.SCH File Association 5
File created by the Shematic Capture Editor program included in KiCad, a tool suite used for designing PCB layouts and electronic schematics; saves an electronic schematic as it is laid out on the program's drawing canvas.
Electronic schematics are used during the schematics capture process in circuit design. Once the electronic schematic has been created, it can then be passed to the printed circuit board design process.
File Type 6ExpressSCH Schematics File
.SCH File Association 6
An SCH file contains a schematic, or visual diagram, of a printed circuit board PCB created with ExpressSCH design software. It stores an electronic schematic as it is laid out on the program's drawing canvas and includes symbols (for logic gates) connected by lines, which represent buses.
The ExpressSCH Schematics (SCH) file type is one of several schematic file types that use the .sch file extension. The ExpressSCH file type is a proprietary file format that is not supported by other Schematics programs. You can only open an ExpressSCH file with ExpressSCH software.
To open an SCH file with ExpressSCH, select .BMP file with ExpressSCH, select .. To export an SCH file to a
Once a user finishes designing an electronic schematic, he passes it to the PCB design process. After the PCB is created, it is passed on to the manufacturing process to be assembled and put to use in various electronic products.
NOTE: ExpressSCH is included with the ExpressPCB software package.
