@PCBann: Thank you for the online price calculator tool from Huaqiang. I've been taking a look to the webpage and it seems very handy!!

MKolb: "The library and module (footprint) editors are a little clumsy to use"

Good point. CERN's H&T group is working in improving this as it's included in some WorkPackages included in CERN's roadmap for KiCad.

MKolb: "The schematic libraries are somewhat limited so I have been adding new parts as I needed them"

Very good point!! I think I'm going to pass CERN guys a note about this issue. It would be fine to have a central repository with lots of parts collections and their associated footprints, spice model, 3D... I don't know if anybody at CERN or at KiCad core developers group has thought in doing this, but I agree with you: they should do that!!

Overall, thanks for your very valuable oppinion!! I'll give feedback to CERN's hardware guys about your experience using standard KiCad.

I have been using (or rather learning to use) KiCad on a processor board project.  For most of the design work that I'm involved in KiCad appears to be a capable tool.  The library and module (footprint) editors are a little clumsy to use, but once I got used to their quirks they are relatively easy to use.  The schematic libraries are somewhat limited so I have been adding new parts as I needed them.  I have completed a preliminary schematic and just started on the layout.  KiCad is not as polished as some of the commercial software I have used before, but I think it shows a lot of promise as a useful PCB design and layout tool.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
