I would like to make a simple diagram showing the pin outs of all of the pins on a board that I have. I would like to do something like the image in this post.

Do you know what a CAD package is?

Any one of number of computer aided design (CAD) software packages would allow you to create the type of thing that you showed in the picture. The names of a few of these packages that pop into mind are:

  2. DraftSight
  3. Visio

If your tables are limited to looking pretty much like your snippet diagram then even Excel spreadsheet software can be used to show such diagrams.
