Kicad PCB By Thickness of Copper
What is a Kicad PCB?
As mentioned previously, a Kicad PCB is an output generated by a software known as KiCad. It is a software that is free and open-source that is utilized as a means of designing electronic schematic diagrams and performing PCB layouts.
KiCad is a trustworthy and cutting-edge program for designing and maintaining electronic circuit boards. It has no limitations on board structure and can accommodate up to four (4) additional layers, fourteen (14) technical layers, and thirty-two (32) copper layers.
Additionally, this software application can produce the Gerber files necessary for PCB creation, drilling, and component positioning files.

How to Use Kicad Software?
Generally, using Kicad software is simple; it comprises two sets of shortcut keys, allowing one to enter commands more quickly while shifting from the mouse to the keyboard.
- First – They’re called accelerator keys, and they work similarly to tabling a menu. Press the left mouse button to initiate an operation after inputting the command; use these buttons to enter orders with delayed responses.
- Second – It is referred to as hotkeys. It has the same function as pressing the accelerator key and using the left mouse button; a command is instantaneously activated at the current point as you press it. This key should be used to swiftly enter commands without disrupting your operations.
Kindly message us for any inquiries you may have.
Advantages of Kicad PCB
As we all know, Kicad PCBs are crafted using free software; hence, we can deduce that they are excellent for designing PCBs. Some of its primary benefits are as follows:
- It is accessible since it is open-source software.
- It has unlimited usage capacity.

Kicad PCB Fabrication
In drawing schematics of a Kicad PCB, it is crucial to download the Kicad software firsthand. After that, you can create a new project.
Third, open the schematic layout editor. Then, add some components, such as resistors, an LED, and a battery. After that, you can add some wires.
Fifth, add some symbol values; 470 for resistor, 9V for battery, and 2V Red for LED. Then, annotate the schematic; provide a unique identifier to components.
Seventh, add footprints for the resistor, LED, and battery. Finally, run the electrical rules checker to identify and correct faults and errors in the schematics.
If you’d like further details about this, kindly contact us directly.
One of the crucial factors for a successful Kicad PCB is a perfect layout; hence, we’d like to discuss with you the basic structure required.
First, open the editor. Then, conduct panning and zooming to the schematic. After that, obtain the necessary information in the schematic.
Fourth, check for item visibility and handling layers. Then, check the rat’s nest lines. Sixth, check and verify the appropriate placement of the footprints.
Seventh, outlining the board. Then, add some traces if needed. After that, thoroughly check the board. Finally, inspect the board from a 3D perspective.
Feel free to contact us for any PCB inquiries you may have.

“As of the moment, I am very thankful to PCBTok for the quality performing PCBs they delivered to me. I made a huge step in my career because of their top-tier service; they spotted some design flaws and notified me immediately. Along with that heads-up, they provided me with their insights as well to make it far better. Thankfully, I followed it without any doubt, and it significantly impacted my final output, which greatly impressed my superiors. If you doubt, you can inquire with them about your PCB specifications; you’ll see how skilled and experienced they are in this field.”Isaiah Sherman, Design Engineer from Tallahassee, Florida
“PCBTok did a really great job in following my specifications; they exceeded my standards and expectations big time. It was very professional of them to follow up on my needs; they constantly ensure that you feel very comfortable with their service. As for the quality of the products I received feels very premium; it clearly shows that they used high-grade materials on them. Thanks, PCBTok; I’ll be sure to make another set of purchases.”Jordan Owens, Electronics Technologist from Wollongong, Australia
“I’m glad that my ex-colleague recommended PCBTok to me; they are definitely the best in this industry. I directly ordered in bulk for my projects, and I am thankful they provided me with some sample pieces of my purchases before they entirely produced them in bulk; I can spot flaws in them. There aren’t enough words to say how satisfied I am with their service and products; it was incomparable to other manufacturers. Thank you so much, PCBTok. I’ll be more than happy to share your greatness with everyone in my field.”Timothy Woodard, Project Engineer from Belfast, Northern Ireland
Before discussing the difference between Kicad Software and Eagle Software, let us first distinguish their similarities to understand these two programs better.
In essence, Both KiCAD and Eagle may be used on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems. Whereas KiCAD may be used with a system having 2 to 3GB RAM and either 32-bit or 64-bit CPUs, Easily Applicable Graphical Layout Editor (EAGLE) is far more common software. It needs 3 to 4GB RAM with a 64-bit processor. Either of these software platforms gives the user access to designing and touring options, schematic capturing, and creating electrical rule checking.
One of their vast distinctions is the cost; KiCad is free software, and EAGLE has an annual maintenance cost. However, they have almost the same features, with EAGLE possessing certain advanced specifications.
Here are some of their dissimilarities:
- KiCad has a significantly lower training time. In comparison to EAGLE, the interface design is indeed easier to comprehend and operate.
- Designers may efficiently process and work with multi-sheet schematics by converting them into a hierarchical structure using KiCad.
- Designing high-speed elements for complicated boards is doable with EAGLE; KiCad does not have the necessary capabilities.
- EAGLE offers tools for BGA fan arrangement and other similar capabilities for HDI organized and trim boards. Such tasks cannot be accomplished with KiCad’s current functionality.
