Digi-Key Announces KiCad Library Release 1.0

July 10, 2018 // By Ally Winning
Digi-Key Electronics has tagged the open source, Digi-Key KiCad symbol and footprint library with a 1.0 status on the company’s GitHub Repository.

The “Version 1.0” designation indicates that the library has all major features, and is reliable enough for general release. Digi-Key collaborated with the KiCad user community to refine library management processes, the data included with the parts, and improved the quality of the symbols and footprints. Each part contains Digi-Key descriptions, part numbers, and more data that allows easy BOM resolution and uploading to the Digi-Key cart or BOM tool.

Randall Restle, VP, Applications Engineering said, “The 1.0 release is not the end of development and we are working hard to add more parts to the library and provide KiCad users with a useful set of symbols and footprints for their rapid prototyping needs. We are especially concentrating on difficult to make connectors and IoT modules.”
