Designing PCBs with code - Kaspar
34c3 - Hardware & Making - 12/29/2017
An overview and history of various tools and languages that allow you to use code rather than CAD software to design circuits.
For anyone used to expressing their ideas with code using a CAD tool to design electronics can be an even more frustrating exercise than normal. If you are a programmer thinking about getting into designing circuits or if you have ever thought "I could easily solve this with a for-loop" when using KiCad then this talk is for you.
We will cover the short history of ideas of using code to describe electronic circuits and culminate in some of the presenter's own experiments in this area.
