KiCad 7.0 ECAD Software

KiCad 7.0.0 features custom font support in the schematic, PCB and worksheet editors, as well as text box support was added in both the schematic and PCB editors. Also includes support for 3Dconnexion’s SpaceMouse in the schematic, symbol library, PCB, and footprint editors and 3-D viewer, and an option for Sentry crash reporting data collection for Windows users. Plugin and Content Manager can now automatically check if an updated version of an installed package is available and prompt the user to update, and drag and drop handles have been added to several editors and viewers. Can now be packaged correctly as native Apple silicon processors (M1, M2, etc.), meaning it no longer has to run in emulation mode under the latest Apple hardware, and a separate command line interface has been implemented to allow scripting of many of the editor outputs.

Board and Footprint Editors now include optional check to determine if footprints have deviated from the library they are linked to, as well as a separate tab for ignored DRC tests. Two new DRC rule constraints have been added to custom rules, and custom rule severities can now be defined per custom rule. PCB Layout Tool enhancements include the addition of background bitmaps so that PCB traces and footprint layouts can be copied easily from some original reference PCB or footprint being reverse engineered, and it is now possible completely unroute a footprint. Traces can now be partially drawn, and the board editor can complete the trace the rest of the way to the nearest rats nest end. Selected items in board editor can attempt to automatically route traces between them. New search panel and properties panel have been added, and the algorithm that placed footprints on the PCB was improved to result in a more compact layout. STEP exporter also now uses the same PCB parsing engine as the rest of KiCad, which adds relative 3-D model paths to the footprint.
