Welcome to KiCad Like a Pro, 2nd Edition, from Tech Explorations, a course that can help you learn to design custom circuit boards using KiCad version 5.1.

KiCad is a free, open source 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 PCB manufacturing.

It is the perfect tool for electronics engineers and hobbyists.

PCBs are perhaps the most undervalued component in modern electronics. We use PCBs to hold in place and interconnect the various components that power virtually all electronic devices.

This course will teach you how to use KiCad.

It takes a hands-on approach to learning. All learning takes place in the form of projects of progressive difficulty.

Whether you’re a hobbyist or an electronics technician, this book will help you quickly get productive and start designing your own boards.

The only prerequisites are a computer, an Internet connection and the willingness to learn.

At the end of the course, you will be able to use KiCad to design and manufacture multi-layer circuit boards with highly integrated components and a professional-looking finish.

The course contains four projects that provide plenty of opportunities to learn and practice all of the important features of KiCad.

In addition to projects, the course contains comprehensive sections dedicated to PCB and design principles and concepts. These ensure that you will master the fundamentals to make your PCB project great.

The course includes repositories for each of the projects that you can download and edit on your computer.

If you are interested in designing PCBs using KiCad or switching to KiCad from another CAD application, then this course is for you.

You will learn:

Covers KiCad version 5.1
PCB design with KiCad
Single, double and multi-layered card design
The PCB Design Process
The schematic design process
The layout design process
How to create a schematic design
How to associate schematic symbols with footprints
How to create a PCB layout
Basic PCB concepts, such as edge cuts, copper fillings, mounting holes, solder mask, silkscreen, traces, etc.
Detailed knowledge of the KiCad CAD application (its applications, configuration, toolbars, menus, project files, etc.)
Project-based learning through four projects to ensure mastery of the subjects taught
