KiCad product daily packages for openSUSE

KiCad is an EDA software suiteĀ for the creation of professional schematics and printed circuit boards.

There are two branches: stable version and product. Stable version can be used for everyday work, but currently it’s frozen for changes, only critical bug fixes. Product version is a development branch. It has many interesting and useful innovations, but can be not very stable sometimes.

Stable version of KiCad is available from main OSS repository. KiCad product daily packages, named kicad-unstable, are available from electronics repository. See openSUSE wiki for information how to add new repository. Or just use 1-click install!

Happy engineering!


Electronics OBS project

We are happy to announce reviving of electronics OBS project. It contains software for developing electronic circuits and firmware for microcontrollers: EDA, programmers, flashers, simulation tools and other.

Some software will be moved from science project to electronics, at least:

  • dinotrace
  • gEDA
  • gerbv
  • gnucap
  • gtkwave
  • iverilog
  • KiCad
  • ngspice
  • PCB
  • Qucs

So this packages can be deleted from science repository in future.
