KiCad’s schematic capture includes all the tools you need for schematic design. Place symbols from KiCad’s included symbol library, draw wires to make circuits and manipulate your schematic drawing to make a final engineering design to take into PCB layout.
The electrical rules check (ERC) automatically verifies your schematic connections. It checks for output pin conflicts, missing drivers and unconnected pins.
