SKiDL is a module that allows you to compactly describe the interconnection of electronic circuits and components using Python. The resulting Python program performs electrical rules checking for common mistakes and outputs a netlist that serves as input to a PCB layout tool.
Has a powerful, flexible syntax (because it is Python).
Permits compact descriptions of electronic circuits (think about not tracing signals through a multi-page schematic).
Allows textual descriptions of electronic circuits (think about using diff and git for circuits).
Performs electrical rules checking (ERC) for common mistakes (e.g., unconnected device I/O pins).
Supports linear / hierarchical / mixed descriptions of electronic designs.
Fosters design reuse (think about using PyPi and Github to distribute electronic designs).
Makes possible the creation of smart circuit modules whose behavior / structure are changed parametrically (think about filters whose component values are automatically adjusted based on your desired cutoff frequency).
Can work with any ECAD tool (only two methods are needed: one for reading the part libraries and another for outputing the correct netlist format).
Takes advantage of all the benefits of the Python ecosystem (because it is Python).
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
