People that work in the electronics field will really be able to make the most of applications like KiCad, that make it much easier to design electronic schematics and printed circuit boards (PCBs), which are really important elements in the electronics world.
The program is made up by four modules, that are perfectly integrated into the program's main interface:
- Cvpcb: To select the footprints of the components on a schematic.
- PcbNew: That allows you to design full PCBs, even including a 3D view.
- Eesschema: Essential block to develop schematics.
- Gerbview: Created to be able to view files created with GERBER.
The interface has several menus that will allow us to access each of the functions, from the component creator to the visualization of the project in 3D.
If you're a student or a professional electrical engineer, you may find KiCad a really interesting tool.
KiCad allows you to develop electronic circuits and schematics, and is ideal both for students as well as for professionals. Download KiCad for free
