Interesting Eagle V8 & KiCAD Seminars

KiCad seminar

KiCAD is a free & open-source software suite for EDA. For a while now the layout engine of KiCAD has been more powerful than similar layout engines of some commercial EDA suites. KiCAD is available for Windows, OSX and Linux – in binary and source code.

Apart from schematics captures and the layout editor KiCAD also offers a built-in 3D viewer that can be used to verify the layout and component placement.

The open data formats and the availability of the source code make KiCAD a future-proof choice when it comes to EDA software. Further development doesn’t rest on the shoulders of a single company but on a large international community. The nuclear research center CERN uses KiCAD for many of their own designs and continues to contribute new features again and again.

This workshop covers schematics capture and layouts using KiCAD. Creating new symbols and footprints will also be explained. In the workshop, Mr. Benedikt Heinz will also shine some light on the pros and cons when comparing KiCAD to other software like Eagle. In the workshop all participants will try KiCAD and all of the important features themselves. We will also create a tiny example project. Because of this you should bring a notebook.

This seminar will be given in ENGLISH.

Participation fee : 375 € (incl. VAT)

This participation fee includes the necessary material, seminar documentation, lunch and a participation certificate.

Interesting EAGLE V8 Seminar

Since EAGLE V8 Autodesk brought a lot of new functionality into EAGLE, there are some significant improvements that definitely help the design engineer to get his work done. Electronic design is no longer a stand-alone task. Most electronics is part of a complex product and this development needs interaction with for example mechanical design.

EAGLE now offers a seamless connection between ECAD and MCAD. Part of this process is the assignment of 3D models to the EAGLE packages. Schematics now can be simulated with the built-in “ngspice” simulator. Simulation results and plots are visible immediately. Export for manufacturing data is much easier and comprehensive.

Including new data export options. Component libraries are now managed. You will always be up-to-date with newest libraries available from our content server.

This workshop given by Mr Richard Hammerl from Autodesk, offers you a quick start into EAGLE. You learn the basics of EAGLE so you will be able to start your own projects.

This seminar will be given in ENGLISH.
