This course is updated for KiCad 5.1 – January 2020
Welcome to KiCad Like a Pro, 2nd edition, from Tech Explorations, a course that can help you learn how to design custom Printed Circuit Boards using KiCad version 5.1.
KiCad is an open source and free tool that you can use to design your own PCBs. It is perhaps the world’s most popular (and, in my opinion, the best) computer-aided design tool for making printed circuit boards.
It’s the perfect tool for electronics engineers and hobbyists alike.
PCBs are, perhaps, the most undervalued component of modern electronics. We use PCBs to hold in place and interconnect the various components that make virtually all electronic devices work.
This course will teach you how to use KiCad.
It takes a practical approach to learning. All of the learning takes place in the form of projects of incremental difficulty.
Whether you are a hobbyist or an electronics engineer, this book will help you become productive quickly, and start designing your own boards.
The only prerequisites are a computer, an Internet connection, and the willingness to learn.
By the end of the course, you’ll be able to use KiCad to design and manufacture multi-layer PCBs with highly integrated components and a professional-looking finish.
The course contains four projects that give many opportunities to learn and practice all of KiCad’s important features.
Apart from the projects, the course contains full sections dedicated to PCB and design principles and concepts. These ensure that you will master the fundamentals so that your PCB project are awesome.
The course includes repositories for each of the projects which you can download and edit on your computer.
If you are someone who is interested in designing PCBs using KiCad, or moving to KiCad from another CAD application, then this course is for you.
