Arduino Shield Modules for KiCad V3 by nicholasclewis Jun 26, 2011

Description

This replaces the prior version. I added a version, "*_040pins", with larger pin holes to allow for larger non-stackable pins. The prior version works perfectly with female stackable header pins but not with many regular male pins.

These are modules for both EESchema and PCBNew in KiCad. They will allow you to make PCBs that have the appropriate header positions for a Arduino shield. I adapted files I found on the KiCad yahoo group (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/kicad-users/files/Library/ArduinoShield.ZIP posted by axtz4) adding a version for the MEGA.

I have found many Eagle librarys but very few for KiCad, I hope this encourages others to use this great tool and share more KiCad files.

That is a warning not really an error. It is safe to ignore.
Sir, I get an error like "Pin GND2(power_in) of componenet SHIELD1 is not driven(NET 23). Can you plz suggest some remedy
This is awesome. Exactly what I needed for several items I'm working on. Thanks!

I use ubuntu, where I have to copy the files?congratulations for the work
I think this should work for any operating system: code.google.com/p/opendous/wiki/KiCADTutorialAddingLibraries
You sir are a wonderful human being. Many thanks for making and sharing. You rock!
Hi, I expanded your library with a shield for Arduino Due. Would you like to have a look at it and perhaps post it on your website?
Thanks!

I was just having a look around before I started making it myself so you saved me some extra work. Thanks for sharing.
