Getting ready for a vid on tommorow. Nothing spectacular just a beginner vid to help noobs like me get passed some of the normal stumbling blocks. Simple electronic design an production is here. Designed to plug right into so you can get coding.

Does anybody have experience with making PCB badges with Inkscape --> KiCAD? I'm stuck on putting the circuitry and layers together in the PCB layout editor in KiCAD :(

【Is this a bug in 5?】 Two small circles are displayed in the center of the image. These are power pins that are combined by name and set to hidden. When the circuit diagram created with kicad4 is displayed with kicad5 (Eeschema 5.1.4), it appears and is very disturbing.

I have been playing with 5. Quite the improvement over the last version I tried.

KiCAD with FreeRouter already does this FOR FREE. The HackRF One is just one example of KiCAD's capabilities, which is why I wean my engineers of their Altium addictions. Even though we're at a Fortune 500 company, Altium's license fees still raise eyebrows.

Is that common practice/best practice, or just taking best advantage of the situation with vias and 4? Is placing a via under a 10-pin TTSOP a good practice? I really don't know as I am a newbie at this level of PCB sophistication (or maybe I'm overthinking)

Electronic CAD does actually work on Pi4, in the form of . This little machine continues to astonish and delight all

Yeah! on the master branch+my patches. works altough without acceleration, but this is enough for now. It remains to check the . If everything is fine with it, then I will switch to the master+ branch! For the first time since the March🍾

Okay, here is how to do nice routing on radial petals in : 1: set local center; 2: select all; 3: rotate 360/N degrees so N-th petal orientation will be straight; 4: do routing job on the petal; 5: until done go to 2. Tip: use vias to cleanly separate all petals.

While anyone can do a prototype on a breadboard without any special skill, creating a printed circuit board has a steep learning curve.

Toying with the idea of organizing a focus session/workshop on using open-source tools for RF/microwave work at a major microwave conference (IMS or EuMW)

oops, draws artifacts on the screen, it's too early to say goodbye to the March version of the kernel.

I am also hoping that I can learn to use . Coming from a purely hobbyist background with NO formal training in electronics or CAD, is there some good KiCad-for-dummies books and/or videos to help with learning it?

Got some fresh boards in last week. Simple drop-in MCU with CAN and a few other goodies.👏

【教えて、 5 に詳しい人】   チップの中央に意味不明な円が2つ。 これ、名前で結合し、回路図上では非表示となるはずの電源ピン。 kicad4で作成した回路図をkicad5(Eeschema 5.1.4)で表示したら現れる様になり、とても目障り。 これってバグ? それとも設定で表示抑制できるの? \^o^/

【突然、基板を作り始めた(18)】 お早う御座います。 何かと「ノンマスカブルインタラプト」が多く、進捗は1週間ほど遅れてます。残り配線40本。 ちなみに、KiCad4からKiCad5に移行しました。「配線経路の修正方法」と「ICの電源ピンの定義方法」の改変にちょっと戸惑ってます。 \^o^/
