Title: Matching KiCad schema components with stock components in PartKeepr.
Post by: HendriXML on December 19, 2018, 10:08:04 pm
Hi,

I made a repository on github a while ago. It is useful for users of both KiCad and PartKeepr.

https://github.com/HendriXML/KiCad-BOM-reporter/wiki (https://github.com/HendriXML/KiCad-BOM-reporter/wiki)

When prototyping this a very handy tool to know were components are located. It can even help to choose between available parts.
Title: Matching KiCad schema components with stock components in PartKeepr update!

Today I posted some cool updates:
First the possibility of merging calculated specifications  with schematic ones.
Showed in this thread:
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/lasertrigger-circuit-signals-invalid-exposure/ (https://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/lasertrigger-circuit-signals-invalid-exposure/)
Second the possibility to define numerical specifications as a range.
So now it is possible to match with resistor values from 10k to 12k, with capacitors larger than 1000uF. etc.
In this way more or less of matched components will popup in the report. This helps making decisions about which component to actually use - and where to find them.

Maybe you should post this in the KiCAD section instead?

In the "General Chat" forum, you seem to be talking to yourself...  ::)
I assume some KiCAD users will be more interested. (Can't comment myself, since I am not using KiCAD so far.)

You’re right, I reposted at https://www.eevblog.com/forum/kicad/matching-schema-components-with-partkeepr/ (https://www.eevblog.com/forum/kicad/matching-schema-components-with-partkeepr/) with some more details.
