A Well-Equipped Tool for Designing Electronic Schematic Diagrams

KiCad is an electronics design suite that helps design printed circuit and electronic schematic boards. This lightweight Windows application comes equipped with several dedicated parameters. The schematic editor offers you the option to configure existing page settings, carry out basic editing operations, redo or undo actions, and choose from the different library components. The tool lets you upload NET files, record macros, view chosen footprint, assign hotkeys, etc. Moreover, the program lets you access Gerber files’ contents to analyse copper layers, drill holes, solder mask, etc. of the circuit board image.


  • Easy to use
  • Open-source and lightweight
  • Built-in calculator is great
  • Supports various output formats


  • Not beginner-friendly
  • Looks unlike most CAD software
  • Pre-built components are tough to find
  • Working with libraries can be confusing
