Event description

Description

Learn to design a printed circuit board (PCB) with KiCad, a free open source program. Great for when you've gone though prototyping on a breadboard, a protoboard, and want to move to the next step and make a proper circuit board.

Using two example circuits, we'll go through:

  • creating a schematic diagram

  • creating and assigning electronic component footprints

  • designing and laying out

  • exporting files that can be prepared for various fabrication methods

A basic understanding of common schematic symbols/diagrams can be helpful going in to the workshop, but can be picked up along the way.

Please Bring a laptop with KiCad (free) installed (latest version is 5.1.2 at http://kicad-pcb.org/download/) with a mouse. There will be a 30 minute lunch break part way through the class.

Taught by Tim Kong.


About the Instructor:

Tim has been a part the makerspace community for the last few years picking up various fabrication skills with a current focus on microcontrollers and digital electronics. In that time he's designed many circuit boards for clients as well as for personal and collaborative projects with a variety of applications.
