I am working on a design with some common components and multiple, identical, output channels. The hierarchical block worked pretty well for schematic capture. But I am wondering if I need to layout all individual channels and repeat the work, or if I can replicate the layout of one channel automatically?
Hello and welcome @tewaris
The above screen grab from https://docs.kicad.org/7.0/en/eeschema/eeschema.html#hierarchical-schematics should answer your question.
For the full documentation, go to Kicad Help > https://www.kicad.org/ > Documentation > Schematic Editor.
For the layout phase, look for the great ‘replicate layout’ plugin.
Thank you! I had good success with that in the schematic and it made the schematic drawing a lot simpler. However, I am looking for the same functionality in the board layout. I am going to try the plugin.
Thank you! I am downloading it now.
