KiCad EDA Software Suite - Kicad EDA - KiCad EDA
KiCad is an EDA software suite for the creation of professional schematics and printed circuit boards up to 32 copper layers with additional technical layers. KiCad runs on Windows, Linux and Apple OS X and is released under the open-source GNU GPL v2 free of charge. If you like KiCad or are making a good living using KiCad in your toolset, you should consider donating funds used for development. CERN has put up a place to collect donations which will be used directly to support a developer. With KiCad you can create schematic diagrams and printed circuit board up to 32 copper layers. KiCad comes with a rich set of libraries with 3D models as well.KiCad is a mature EDA software tool under active development by a team of developers and a vibrant user group. Eeschema, schematic editor.Pcbnew, printed circuit board editor, with a 3D viewer.Gerbview, Gerber file viewer. And then some other auxiliary tools: KiCad is under heavy development. STEP 1, schematic capture. STEP 3, PCB layout. Related:  Free or Opensource Software

KiCadLib: Device and Footprint Library for KiCad | open-project.ch This is a collection of electronic device symbols and footprints for KiCad which is used by other projects on open-project.ch. Please leave a comment, if you find this library useful! Download The library can be downloaded from github at Be aware that the latest version of KiCad uses different internal units (mm instead of deci-mills) and thus footprints designed in the latest version are incompatible with older versions. By default you clone the master branch. 1) clone the branch that you want directly (e.g. when you clone the repo for the first time): git clone -b deci-mills 2) clone the master branch and then switch to the branch you want (e.g. when you have cloned the repo before): git clone cd kicadlibrary git checkout deci-mills git pull Device List Footprint List Device Design Rules License This library was made by <tobs@open-project.ch>.

Pourquoi Thomson Computing relocalise l’assemblage de ses PC en France La marque française de micro-informatique Thomson Computing a décidé de transférer l’assemblage de ses PC fixes en forme de mini-tour ou de boîtier compact en France. Et elle envisage d’étendre sa démarche de relocalisation à l’ensemble de ses produits. Thomson Computing joue la carte du made in France. La marque française de micro-informatique -qui réalise et vend depuis deux ans des tablettes, PC portables et périphériques sous la marque Thomson — a décidé de relocaliser en France l’assemblage de deux produits : les PC en forme de mini-tour et les NUC (Next unit of computing), ces mini PC en forme de boîtier compact. L’objectif de patron-fondateur Stéphan Français est d’entrer plus facilement sur le marché des entreprises, des administrations, des collectivités locales ou encore de l’éducation nationale. Fondée en 2013, Thomson Computing mise sur la légitimité de la marque Thomson en France pour se faire une place sur le marché, ô combien difficile, de la micro-informatique.

Designator | Online Documentation for Altium Products The Designator uniquely identifies each component in the design. Summary The designator field is a child parameter object of a schematic component (part). It is used to uniquely identify each placed part, distinguishing it from all other parts placed in all the schematic sheets in the project. Availability The designator is automatically placed when the parent component part object is placed. Non-Graphical Editing There are 2 aspects to consider in relation to editing the designator: editing the value of the designator; and editing the display properties of the designator. Rather than manually editing each component designator, it is more practical to leave the assignment of the designators until the schematic is complete. ...via the Schematic Library Editor By default, the designator is not visible in the Schematic Library Editor. Double click on the component name, or click the Edit button, to open the dialog and defined the value of the Designator string. ...via the Schematic Editor Notes

Reconstruct your world with ReconstructMe SqueezePlug Verifying Your Design in Altium Designer | Online Documentation for Altium Products What do designers use as part of their daily arsenal in their approaches to design verification in order to be confident that their design is ready for PCB layout? Verifying that a design is correct is often the most difficult and yet also the most important aspect during this phase. The focus of this article will be on a discussion of issues that typically cause problems for designers before the PCB layout phase, reveal strategies that can be used by the designer to avoid these pitfalls, and how Altium Designer can be leveraged to work for them. Design Verification Strategies A good strategy for design checking and debugging integrates test case design techniques into a set of well-planned series of steps that result in the successful completion of designs and delivery to market. The best way to approach verifying your design is to have software that gives you as much help as possible! Verification - are we building the product right? Verification - "Are we building the product right?"

Linking Existing Components to Your Company Database | Online Documentation for Altium Products This document provides detailed information on linking existing Altium Designer components to an external database using Altium Designer's database link feature. Tip: Linking between schematic library components and an external database can only be achieved if the library is part of a library package (*.LibPkg). Choose File » New » Project » Integrated Library to create a new library package and then add the source schematic libraries to it. A common requirement for many organizations is to link from the electronic CAD components to the company's central component database. Once linked, you can transfer mapped information from the database records to design parameters in the components using the Update Parameters From Database command. A Word About Linking Choices... You can also link to a database using an SVN Database Library file (*.SVNDBLib).
