I’m putting this under “Manufacturing” but also “Layout/Footprints” might be a sensible group.
I am thinking about the “best” way to design boards that use plug-in modules like this:
From the point of view of the schematic and layout, this is treated as a single component.
But from the point of view of the BOM, it’s two completely separate connectors. An assembler will not know or care that they happen to be for the same part.
How should this be handled? AFAIK there’s no way of specifying this within KiCAD, so I’m thinking that I manually post-process the BOM and pick-and-place file to correctly specify the connectors after generation.
What do people think? Is there a better way?
