Kicad image to module converter
Looking to add some fancy graphics to the silkscreen on your next printed circuit board? If you’re using the totally awesome open source Kicad EDA suite, look no further!
For an upcoming project, Wayne and Layne wanted to add a QR code image link to one of our circuit boards. The image conversion tool built into Kicad had some issues, so we quickly wrote our own with the features we needed.
We’ve created a quick and dirty “web service” to do image conversions right on the web, but a standalone script is also available for download. The script is written in the most excellent Python language, and requires the Python Imaging Library (PIL).
