KiCad is a free utility for designing and laying out printed circuit boards. Printed circuit boards connect your circuits together without the need for breadboards and jumper wires. With circuit prototyping services cheaper than ever, it’s simple to turn your design into a real, working board.
This workshop will cover the basics of KiCad, from Schematic Capture, to Board Layout, you’ll walk out of the workshop with the knowledge necessary to take your circuit ideas from dream to reality.
If you’re already familiary with Eagle, KiCad has a number of advantages, including unlimited board size, up to 16 copper layers on your board, multiple sheets of schematic, and more.
