VisualPlace assists in (manual or automated) PCB assembly. Component
placement is extracted from files generated from the EDA suite —notably
the Gerber files, the centroid file(s) and the bill-of-materials.
The application visualizes the component placement and converts the files (with corrections, where applicable) for further automated processing. Creating placement information (with semi-automatic centre-finding for the centroid markers) is also possible.
Due to a plug-in architecture, VisualPlace works with many EDA suites, and more can be added.
- Packages is a tool to maintain a repository of packages of electronic components. It is developed with the goal that various applications use one and the same repository as a basis for their handling of packages.
- KiCad Librarian
A utility to move & copy footprints or schematic symbols from one library to
another, and to optionally adjust the parameters of these footprint/symbols.
This program supports the KiCad EDA suite.
