Out of Stock? We've received a lot of emails asking about out of stock items, and sad to say, but CI is downsizing to a much smaller product offering. All of our guides, schematics and blog entries will stay available forever. Our new project is VMeter--a USB MIDI Controller Touch Strip & Display.
This set of tutorials will cover some essentials to designing circuits and pcb layouts using kicad (link goes to author's site + download), an open-source tool for circuit (board) design that's free and has no restrictions on number of layers or size (like Eagle). We'll focus more on the unintuitive things as well as tips & tricks rather than re-write the manual.
