KiCad Boot Camp – Learn To Design Your Own Circuit Boards
May 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT
KiCad is an amazing Open Source (free as in freedom!) program that allows you to design your own printed circuit board without arbitrary limitations on board size. KiCad offers an all-in-one solution:
- Full featured EDA suite, GNU GPL license
- Cross-platform – Linux, Windows, Mac OSX
- Large, dedicated support community.
- Extensive Documentation, FAQ’s, Mailing List, Tutorials, IRC
This workshop is tailored for the electronic enthusiast who has just started off using KiCad or wants to switch to it from other tools. Anool will quickly walk through a design from Schematic to Gerbers and answer your “how-to” questions.
Participants must bring their own laptop and have KiCad already installed. An external mouse with a scroll wheel is highly advisable (but not required) to help make navigation with the application much easier.
