The future of PCB design? How & why to write your schematics in code.


Playlists: 'gpn22' videos starting here / audio

Writing schematics via code isn’t a new idea. But with new open-source projects like Atopile, this workflow suddenly makes a lot more sense. Let’s take a look at why one would even write schematics in code instead of using the established visual way in software like KiCad or Altium, the advantages (from git integration, reusing components & modules, AI support, and more), previous software projects in that field, the current development state and how you can try out this new workflow yourself.
Ideally, you already have experience in PCB design, but also PCB design newbies can learn a lot in this talk and learn some tricks for their first circuit board design.
