I hereby certify that I am not simply asking someone else to design a footprint for me.
This is an auto-generated message that is in place on the “footprints” section of the KiCad.info forum. If I remove it and ask for a footprint to be designed anyway, I understand that I will be subject to forum members telling me to go design my own footprint or referring me to a 3rd party footprint site.
Hi everybody !
I am switching from Eagle (I have been hating since the begining…) to KiCad, and I’m re-disigning my entire symbols/footprints libraries from scratch + adding self made 3D models. As a training and because I like it. (I konw of utilities that do it, but no !)
I have a problem I can’t get much information about. I mostly play with arduino’s and STM32’s (Nano’s, ProMini’s BluePill’s, BlackPill’s). I made 3D models, footpints, etc. But I have a problem with power pins. On such modules some power pins can be inputs, and/or outputs. For example RAW/5V/3V3. What attribute should I use ? Bidirectionnal ? Power could come from RAW, 5V or 3V3, or RAW, go to 5V and 3V3 and be used by other components in the schematics… ERC is not happy !
What is the best way to design the components ? Google didn’t help that much with keywords such as "KiCad, power, pins, output, input, and so on…)
I know of the KLC, and it is in my fovourites.
