Learning KiCad with a Udemy Course

September 4, 2022

I learned Schematic and PCB design using Altium Designer at BCIT. My plan was to do some more practice over the Summer. To my surprise, a few weeks after the end of the course our accounts were disabled even though I thought we had access to the license/subscription for one year. So I decided to learn KiCad as it is free, open-source, and has a huge community behind it. I purchased this course, KiCad Like a Pro 3rd Ed on Udemy. This post is a showcase of the 3 projects I completed during the course. I only designed the schematics and PCB, at this time I am not going to order manufactured PCBs for these projects.


Project #1, Breadboard Power Supply

Project #2, ATMEGA328P based data logger

Project #3, ESP32 Development Board Clone

Udemy Certificate
