.SCH File Extension
File Type 1gEDA Schematic File
What is an SCH file?
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 2SuperCard Help Project File
.SCH File Association 2
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 3EAGLE Schematics File
.SCH File Association 3
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 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.
