    Circuit and PCB-Design

    There are many software packages that help with the creation and planing of schematics, as well as the translation of this schematic into a PCB that can be sent of to manufacturing. While this fabrication process might seem cumbersome and a bit luxurious, soldering a PCB is usually much less error prone and time efficient than wiring something by hand.

    Name Description
    Horizon-EDA A modern Open-Source Software that can be used to draw schematics, layout PCBs and export them in a format suitable for fabrication. In Comparison with KiCAD this offers a more streamlined UI and more modern features, while the parts library is still smaller. Prefered choice of the workshop.
    KiCAD The traditional Open-Source EDA (Electronic Design Automation) Software. Has a huge parts library, sadly parts managment and UI are anything but modern
    LibrePCB Another Open-Source EDA software worth looking into
    Fritzing A good software for beginners and people who don’t want to manufacture PCBs

    Electronics Simulation

    Often it makes sense to simulate a circuit before going of an buying the parts. This can help safe time, money and nerves.

    Name Description
    CircuitJS A simple realtime browser-based circuit simulator. While it might not be 100% accurate in all cases, it helps to get a quick feeling for most circuits
    LTSpice A free (but not open source) circuit simulator with a very old school interface. But it allows for very accurate simulations if the right models are used
