Uconfig: tools to extract pinout fom PDF to insert into Kicad


(Jean Charles Lebeau) #1

Too cool, i just give you an information about this application: uConfig to extract pinout from PDF datasheet and create Kicad (open-source software tool for the creation of electronic schematic diagrams and PCB artwork) schematics.

https://github.com/Robotips/uConfig to compile by yourself (i have not try)
or use binary here: https://ci.appveyor.com/api/projects/sebcaux/uconfig/artifacts/uconfig-win32-v0.zip

That sounds neat. What would really be cool is to embed 1:1 scale footprints of ics in datasheets that a script can extract along with pinouts to auto generate parts for common pcb software. Would save a heck of time over manually building custom libraries.
