KiCAD feedback

Post by andrewjfox » Tue May 19, 2015 6:58 am


Sorry this post is not specific to FT products, but I noticed you guys are using KiCAD and I'm in the process of transitioning away from Protel 99. I just can't justify maintaining a Windows XP machine any longer just for this. I've tried Eagle but don't like the workflow of having to predefine schematic and pcb layout for components.

Are you happy with KiCAD and, if so, do you plan to move all designs to this platform? Do any other users have constructive feedback about KiCAD?

Depends on who you talk to here as we all have different opinions.
Angus uses KiCAD and really likes it, Jon uses EAGLE and KiCAD and I only use EAGLE.
In the future we haven't officially decided to go with one particular package at this point.
