cad/kicad - The NetBSD Packages Collection

Schematic and PCB CAD software (stable branch)

Kicad is an open source (GPL) software for the creation of electronic schematic
diagrams and printed circuit board artwork.

Designed and written by Jean-Pierre Charras, a researcher at LIS (Laboratoire
des Images et des Signaux) and a teacher in IUT de Saint Martin d'Heres
(France), in the field of electrical engineering and image processing.

Kicad is a set of four softwares and a project manager:

    * Eeschema: Schematic entry.
    * Pcbnew: Board editor.
    * Gerbview: GERBER viewer (photoplotter documents).
    * Cvpcb: footprint selector for components used in the circuit design.
    * Kicad: project manager.

This is from the stable branch.
