Everyone who ever been through a component-level motherboard repair is familiar with a boardview software. And everyone knows it sucks.

Meet NeoBoardView, the only non-crap tool capable of viewing BRD and BDV 'board view' files.

Now you can have your cake, and eat it, too!

See how it works with Apple boardviews:

And Lenovo's are fine too:

NeoBoardView can also guess component shapes:

Version: 0.2.3, Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP
File size: 658 KB


Which formats are supported?

Why are some component shapes on board view are completely different from the real ones?

Board view files don't contain information that could help deducing component shapes. All shapes are defined by pins — that's the way board views have been designed.
Starting from version 0.2.3, NeoBoardView can guess shapes heuristically (press G to switch between default and guessed shapes).

Is there any keyboard shortcuts?

Yes! Some shortcuts are similar to Landrex TastLink, which you are probably familiar with.
Keep in mind that you can navigate using the mouse: hold and drag with the left mouse button to move around the board and use mouse wheel to zoom.
