It is the first board we ever designed completely in KiCad. The learning curve wasn’t that steep. I’ll put my KiCad experiences together in a tutorial series soon. This is […]

The online DRC feature itself making the switch worth because we are completely out the DRC->FIX ERROR->DRC… cycle in Eagle. Yeh, […]
