Why Hidden Pins are Evil (and Nets Should Only Have One Name)
Friday, 5. February 2016

Since some years ago I use the KiCad EDA suite. (And I also collaborated on the translation of the KiCad documentation.)

I’m a electronics engineer and hardware developer in a big company where I do embedded designs in high voltage environments.

KiCad makes a lot of things right but there are some things that annoy me. One is the “one net multiple names” “feature” which is made worse by an even more annoying “feature”: hidden pins.
