Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design allows for the creation of the modern-day electronic systems. Open-source PCB design software allows people to easily access, modify, share, and collaborate on electronic projects. This project created several designs demonstrating various PCB design techniques for a keyboard interface, a transmission line test card, and a 2.4 GHz antenna.
KiCad EDA is a cross-platform and open-source electronics design automation suite and was used for creating the boards in this project. Open-source software has few restrictions and no licensing costs, other commercial PCB design packages include Altium Designer.
