Sierra Circuits has collaborated with KiCad to create a plugin that enables users to get a quote directly from the PCB software. No more design output, no more errors when you send your data to the manufacturer… Save time and quote your design without never leaving KiCad.
The Sierra Circuits plugin was created with the help of KiCad designers. We have streamlined the quoting process based on users’ feedback so you can now quote and order standard PCB products (assembly optional) without ever leaving KiCad. Your board will be priced by the square inch or the number of layers.
Our plugin saves you time since you no longer need to output your data to send it to the PCB house. This also spares you from the errors that come with this step. Because, trust us, as a manufacturer, we see designers sending
the wrong data every day, causing delays and money.
So here’s how it works: once you have completed your layout, all you need to do is go to Tools and External Plugins, and select Sierra Circuits Quote.
A window will pop-up and show your specifications. Our plugin reads your design for a smooth quote process. Most of your board information will be automatically filled out, such as the dimensions and layer number. It is
then up to you to choose the thickness, surface finish, etc.
Review your parameters, pick your quantity and turn time, get assembly if needed, and place your order. This is as simple as it sounds!
