1Making Hardware with KiCad and Friends
2
3KiCad is a well-established Open Source EDA suite that provides tools
4for most of the basic tasks in circuit design. In larger projects,
5and especially those of an open and collaborative nature, additional
6requirements appear that KiCad can only partially satisfy.
7
8Specifically, collaborative projects benefit from visualization that
9helps to quickly follow the work of others and to track a project's
10revision history. Furthermore, an automated and thus easily
11reproducible workflow lowers the barrier of entry and avoids costly
12mistakes.
13
14In the Qi-Hardware project, we use KiCad as the centerpiece for various
15hardware designs and enhance its functionality with patches or external
16programs. This presentation will describe the complete workflow from
17design to fabrication, introduce the various tools we use to complement
18KiCad, and also briefly address common design rules.
