Is a new category required for needs such as schematic connections, hardware, electrical questions, programmer, new component etc?
For the sample messages below and the like.
If necessary, what should the name of this category be?

I think that the good old fidocadj, may be a tool to help member to share little sketches over the forum discussions.

I tested and it didn't fail. Anyways you may search for for that.
The simple description is:
We may paste a diagram which is a plain test of a circuit diagram. Whom downloads the offline program can visualize the schematics and or modify it. For the site, there should be a script that will convert the text description in a picture so all members can see what it look like.

OK, link now works.

Should we add a PCB category?
What else could it be?

It may be something that will work for the site, to represent simple schematics.

Hello everyone

There is a PCB and Schematic drawing program called EXPRESSPCB the location of the actual business is in the state of Oregon, U.S.  They produce high quality PCB's.
Take a look at  https://www.expresspcb.com/pcb-cad-software/    I recommend downloading ExpressPCB Plus.   Their software is free to download, free to use, and easy to learn.  I have no idea what shipping would be, but they have a shipping calculator. I have been using them for about 10 years - have never had a problem....

It does electr(on)ics schematics an PCB layouts as well. Platform independent, written in Java, plain text files that can be embedded on the web pages.
