This short course on KiCad 5 gives a basic idea about the usage of open-source software tool KiCad 5 for the creation of electronic schematic diagrams and PCB artwork. This course enables you to design your PCBs with its precise yet simple explanations for a beginner to understand the concepts and guidelines of PCB design.
The course introduces the KiCad tool for schematic entry and PCB layout design of single-layer and two-layer boards with examples for each. You will understand the various stages of design validation using ERC and DRC checks to result in more reliable PCBs. The method used in the course gives you a pleasant learning experience without beating around the bushes.
To the point, precise and effective instructions and yet short video lessons are the highlights of the course. The lessons on the schematic symbol, footprint creation, and differential pairs are added to give you an insight into the practical design challenges.
