Kicad is a suite of programs for the creation of printed circuit boards. It includes a schematic editor, a PCB layout tool, support tools and a 3D viewer to display a finished & fully populated PCB.

Kicad is made up of 5 main components:

 * kicad - project manager
 * eeschema - schematic editor
 * pcbnew - PCB editor
 * gerbview - GERBER viewer
 * cvpcb - footprint selector for components


 * Both eeschema and pcbnew have library managers and editors for their
   components and footprints
 * You can easily create, edit, delete and exchange library items
 * Documentation files can be associated with components, footprints and key
   words, allowing a fast search by function
 * Very large libraries are available for schematic components and footprints
 * Most components have corresponding 3D models
